Well, I was asked to do a card for my Greek friend whose husbands Name Day is on Thursday. Manly with his name on is what she wanted!
After getting the tip from Top Tip Tuesday about using chipboard pieces that you get in packs, in colours you never use, and re-covering them, I decided to that with the star and the tag. I put a few layers of embossing powder on them and quite like how they turned out. With the star, after I did 3 layers of black, I then dipped it in silver. I had never done that before so quite like how it turned out.
The white cord is something that I have had in my drawers for years...I remember getting it from Ikea but never knowing what to do with it. I also used another tip left on Top Tip Tuesday, about putting card on the back of paper if you wrap stuff around it so that it doesn't tear - what a fab tip!!
Recipe: Papermania tag and star, cord from Ikea, DCWV Black & White pad, buttons from Satwa
