Wow, I've managed two posts in a week. This one contains the two cards that I made for my husband one from me & the other from the kids.
The first uses a Tonic Studios Verso Die in the background to add a little extra dimension & put some interest behind the main part of the card. Using the beautiful Tattered Lace Dies I cut 3 owls (2 of one owl & 1 of the other). I then drew round each of them using the cut out as a template in the opposite colour & then glued them together so you could see the one colour through the other.
I then added the branches & leaves, these are made from Martha Stewarts Air Dry Clay. It was the first time I'd used this & found it really easy to use & the results are so light. I need to get more moulds now (any excuse to add to my crafty stash).
The card from the kids I again used Tattered Lace Dies for the frame & used the same technique as the owls to line the die with a different colour. The lettering is also die-cut using Tattered Lace Alphabet Dies.
The tiger is stencilled using a Sand coloured glitter paste, both from Glitzcraft which I then cut round.
The wording on both cards are again Tattered Lace using the Sentiment dies.
