Caardvarks + Card Patterns #8

Last night David was out playing poker with his mates, so I decided to retreat to my craft room and create some cards. I would love to show you all five cards I created, but I can only show you two at the moment. The others I'll submit for publication.

The first one I made is for the latest Caardvarks challenge. The sketch is provided by the super talented Heidi. I loved seeing all the butterflies on the design teams cards, so I decided to use one too. Since I was using the new gorgeous papers from SEI, Bridgeport I didn't use a butterfly stamp, but instead I cut out a butterfly from one of the patterned papers.



Supplies: Bazzill Basics Cardstock Lily White | SEI patterned papers + die cut Bridgeport | Spellbinder Nestabilities dies circles + scallop circles | Fiskars border punch Apron Lace | Papertrey Ink clear stamp Damask Designs | Woodware corner rounder.

The second card I made along the sketch #8 over at Card Patterns. I used the same papers again. I think I'm in love with these papers, lol.



Supplies: Bazzill Basics Cardstock Lily White | SEI patterned papers + die cuts Bridgeport | Fiskars border punch Apron Lace | Papertrey Ink clear stamp Damask Designs | ribbon local haberdashery | 7Gypsies clear stamp Nottinghill | Versamark ink | Crystal Clear embossing crystals.

Even though I cannot show you the other cards, I can however reveal I used the same yummy papers on all of them.

Have a lovely Sunday.
