Just a note!

Hello my crafting friends and a good Bank Holiday Monday to you all, as I have today off work I am hoping to play...mmm lets keep our fingers crossed lol! Anyhow, I hope you are all having a good weekend with plenty of craft time?

I have two little cards for you today that I made  just to send my personal contact details to two of my cousins, we have always kept in touch over the years but through their parents, now they have gone we decided it was about time we had each others details.

They are only tiny cards made out of scrap card that I had  left over from other projects. With the Peacock die I cut it out using Pearlescent Teal card then embossed some Green Miri card, cut round that and matted the Teal peacock on top, I attached it to a piece of cream leather look card (actually the reverse of it as its plain) I had die cut with the outer die from  SW French Collection Auvergne I then matted this onto a Teal card base. On the inside I added a piece of White card to write my details on.

The 'Maple Leaf' card a had a piece of Pearlescent Chocolate Brown card for the base and matted that up with a piece of Cream leather Look card. I die cut the Leaf Window out of the leather look Cream card and inked it with Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marmalade, Fired Brick, Crushed Olive and Vintage Photo to give it a Autumn look. I attached this to my base card then stamped underneath with  stamps using Vintage photo. The inside of the Pearlescent Chocolate Brown card is White so I did not have to line this in order to write on it.

There you have two small but useful little cards.
