Now this is not the only card magazine the UK has. Another great one is Quick Cards and it too comes with free gifts. If you want to check them out they are available from Barnes and Noble and sometimes Joanns.
This particular issue came with some 8x8 DSP, an acrylic stamp and an embossing folder with matching border folder. Each gift set is highlighted inside the magazine with examples of how to use your gifts.
For today's card I decided to take my inspiration from the sample inside.
This card measures 6x6 and I used a doily die to add a doily to the front. I had fussy cut around the tulip image which was colored with my sparkle gel pens. Sometimes I just like the brightness and sparkle they give the images. If you haven't tried it yet you should. In fact if the space your coloring is a bit large like the tulip it's self you can just add color on the edges and add a bit of water to a brush and it spreads almost like watercolor. Its really a cool technique. Here's my card......................
The doily seemed appropriate since the paper has little doily's on it.
Pretty cool right?
Well I think I'll go find another card to make with my gifts. Maybe this time use the embossing folders!
Til next time.........................
