Designer Frames

Think I’m in love with these new embossing folders.  They are so versatile and I can see myself doing lots with them.  Was a bit dubious before purchasing, but no, well worth it.

Here are two simple cards using these folders.  You can see that you don’t really need a lot of other embellishments – just plain and simple does it.IMG_1957

 

For the first one I have finally made my first Christmas card (I must get on and start doing more before Christmas has come and gone!!!)  I have used the shimmer paint on the frame and part of the bird which looks really effective.

The next one I feel is so cute. Here I have finally used the (now redundant?) Sweet Summer set from the last Saleabration catalogue.  Not sure why I have never used it before because it is a lovely set.  Can’t bear to part with a lot of my old sets so will probably hang on to them a while longer and get sIMG_1958ome fun and lovin’ out of them.

There is one thing I must remember to do, and that is to put a piece of paper on top of my folder to stop the indentations around the sides – you will see what I mean on the second card.

You can tell I am having fun gradually using all my new toys from the new catty.  Hope you have got lots to play with too.
