Penny Black Meets Magnolia


Lots of folding and scoring to make these two envelope cards but well worth the effort. The cards themselves are each made from a single sheet of 12 x 12 paper …. think they were both from a QVC buy. Loads of stamping, masking, colouring, inking, glitter, micro beads, diamond glaze and punching went into these two projects but enjoyed every minute. Put the cat through the swiss dots embossing folder and covered the dots with micro beads, added stitching and lace to the Penny Black card.

Entering for:
Allsorts Challenge – They want at least three punches
Penny Black at Allsorts – Punch away
Craftalicious Challenges – Thanks
