Thank you x 2

Two cards I made as a thank you.

christmas card

I found some old chipboard shapes so thought I would use the reindeer up after seeing Tim Holtz card.
I painted the reindeer then stamped and embossed it, then covered it in glossy accents,some parts I used the crackle glaze.
I embosssed the chipboard letter too and the background card.

Two cards

A friend asked me to make two cards for her family who have had a baby boy. One for her nephew and the other for the proud grandparents.

It was the first time that I had used Stampin Ups Heat and stick powder, which I am now in love with.
