Simple quick cards using up scraps of DSP

These are quick easy cards that can have a gift card attached to them for birthdays or Xmas.

All you need is an envelope, a few punches and some scraps of cardstock and DSP and 50 cms of ribbon.

The pink and chocolate chip one was made for my parents. The combination of pink and chocolate chip is wonderful and I shall miss pink pirouette when it retires in September next year.

The Pacific point card was made for a very special friend who is staying in Dunedin at the moment. She was very pleased at what you could do with an envelope and went straight out and bought some to duplicate what she had been sent

Uncle Tom turns 90

My great Uncle Tom turned 90 this week and this is the card I made for him. The car is a retired American set called Classic Cars. (There are some stamps that a girl just simply can't live without!)
I embossed it using black EP. The background is watermarked using the sanded stamp (my favourite for male cards).
Word window punch, 1 3/8 " circle and the scalloped circle and hey presto a card. The 90 is black stickers as I didn't have a number set big enough (next purchase perhaps?)
