The same, but different .....



now if that title isn't Irish, well I don't know. Basically yesterday Kelsey and I sat about making cards all day and we set ourselves our very own little challenge. The challenge that we set ourselves was to make as many cards using the same toppers but in different styles. I made 3 A5 cards one gate fold, one with the sides cut out (don't know technical term sorry) and lastly one with a deckled edge. Gold, silver and purple mirror board was used along with some peel offs, colouring pens, and a heart punch. Coloured in some of the images and fixed some pearls to lift the images slightly.


Kelsey made 2 A6 cards using the same toppers, again using some silver and purple mirror board, peel offs a rub on and some pearls (think she copied me on that one LOL). On the silver card she cut a piece of mirror board, stuck it inside the card and then using a Fiskars boarder punch, punched out a boarder. Within the flowers of the boarder she stuck some pearls onto the mirror board, good idea Kelsey !!!!!!. Anyway we had lots of fun doing these cards and Trevor and Joe were outside playing football which meant we had peace from the boys ;-)
