Cuttlebug Lace Tree

I bought this embossing folder at Westpoint on Thursday, and love it. I made this card for the Pollycraft Challenge where you had to make a card using black and white and one other colour. First I embossed my lace tree onto white card, then printed my sentiment which was computer generated using red font. This was layered onto black card and then stuck to the base card. I used red whisper red dots on the tree and punched out a white snowflake using my X Cut punch, then a red snowflake and stuck the 2 together, and finished it off with a red whisper dot. Finally tied red ribbon knot and fixed to the bottom of the tree.

Handmade flower

For this card I used my favourite embossing folder the Manhattan Rose by Stampin Up, first I printed my message which was computer generated onto cream card, the font colour was chosen to match the backing paper I was using, it was then run through my sizzix using the Manhattan Rose folder, and the lower portion trimmed around the rose outline, so that the backing paper was revealed, the handmade flower was punched out using the same backing paper and moulded using my embossing tool, the leaves were punched out using a punch kindly lent to me by Anne. To finsh I stuck flat backed pearls in the centre of each rose.
This card was made for the Polkadoodle challenge where we were asked to make a handmade flower.
