It’s beer, but not as we know it…

These two cards are made using a beer bottle die. Fabulously useful for cards for men, but you always want to get the most from your tools, so I tried using it for celebratory cards that are more feminine. I think they came out ok! Five bottles cut from coordinating papers, plus a glittery greeting.

I have not been meeting my glitter quota lately so need to make amends and use it on everything. Just as a heads up, it is not good on cereal, adds nothing to a salad (apart from attractive sparkle) and makes uncomfortable pyjamas.

Achoo…

Fighting the germs. Cutting, folding and sticking helps. NHS has missed a trick. Should be available on prescription. See, am so germy I can’t…form…a whole…sentence.

I wanted to emboss the sentiment on to vellum with this, but I couldn’t make it happen and kept messing up, breaking things and even did some permanent damage to tools. One of those days. Don’t know why it didn’t occur to me earlier to just cut a word die from vellum too and stick it on. Have chose to blame the hazy head. I am very happy with the end result, although this could be a paracetamol-induced state and tomorrow I may be covered with embarrassment.

The roses are from the Tattered Lace Charisma die and CD range, the Love word die is by Memory Box and backing paper is Dovecraft Floral Muse, which is gorgeous. The vellum is from anywhere that sells vellum! Oh look, I’m cured! Paper is a powerful weapon. Use it wisely.
