Some Crisp Cantaloupe with some Pistachio Pudding

doesn’t my title sounds like a delicious dessert fit for a Summer’s day? That’s exactly what this card turned out to be-Delicious !!

I made various colours in the same design over the last few weeks for my events and for my Passionettes birthdays this month this one was made for the lovely Tara who celebrated her Happy Day a few days ago :)

I seen a card on pinterest with the white embossed technique and I really liked the effect so I set off to re create it.

I was a bit slap dash and didn’t use my embossing buddy hence a few stray powder trails on there :(

Of course the new designer paper stacks match the colours of our ink and card perfectly and I added a little bit of lace tape. Instant pretty !!!

I LOVE this stamp and the matching folder and its been very popular with my customers The matching folder gives the stamp extra dimension and interest plus you don’t need to add much else to end up with a pretty card.

I settled on a easel card this time but my rule still is to only ever send easel cards to crafters. If they are not crafters they will not manage to display the card properly. I have lost count how many people asked me after sending them the card how to stand it up including my sister :)

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and I hope you managed to enjoy a BBq or six this week :)

I am off now, tomorrow I will be spending a fabby crafty day with lots of my fellow demonstrators in Peterborough for our quarterly training. I cannot wait to see everyone again and swap!!! lots of yummy new catalogue swaps *grin*

Enjoy your evening and thank you for visiting me.

Big hugs xxx
