I'm a bit unsure about these three cards.The first one was heavily inspired by someone else's card but I don't remember whose it was! If you're reading this and recognise the card pls let me know and I will acknowledge you as the designer. I tried to colour in and then emboss the orange flowers but the ink dried too quickly so it didn't work. Hubby says it looks like the card is designed for a man so he wants to know why on earth I put a handbag on it! Fair point. I left the tag blank so that it can be 'filled' with a sentiment at the last minute.
With the boot card...the idea is that you have to untie the shoelace to open it. Really it was an excuse to use my Crop-a-dile. I like the eyelets and shoelace bit but then I ran into problems because I found that no other embellishing would work with the card. I think it'll be another one for the 'Didn't-quite-work-out' pile. If anyone's got any ideas feel free to share them with me!
This handbag card is OK-ish but I feel the border I drew with a pink pen pulls the whole card down. Oooohh...I've just had an idea...maybe I could cover the pink outline with glue and sprinkle on some gitter or maybe micro pearls...
