Crafty Edgers - A few cards on the way

I know there is something very wrong about posting cards that aren't yet finished, but I'm going to show some pics anyway as they show some examples of the Crafty Edgers mentioned in my previous post.  I'm running out of time to finish them today so wanted to take the pics to show you the borders before the light gets worse.

The rosette and lacy border are punched from our vellum kit HERE, (it is on special offer!) the Crafty Edger cartridge is the one that comes with the starter kit.

I used the same punch for the card below, I've also used Tim's tissue tape on the main tag.

 I threaded some reproduction vintage newspaper though that has been lightly coloured with Bundled Sage distress ink.  I have also used some other strips of it around the edges of a configuration box I have just made in place of the usual tissue tape.  

We will have some of the repro vintage newspaper for sale at the GNPE show at Harrogate this weekend and have also included it in some special kits we are putting together for the show (more about that another time!).

I used the Antique Floral Cassette along with Tim's rosette die to create the snowflake effect on the card below, and the Bling Bling cassette for the edging.

The last card is stamped with our Label's 5 compatible Framies 5 key stamp along with Tim Holtz stamps.  The edging cassette is Floral Lace.

Thanks again for visiting!

  2. Loving your borders and how you've used them. Shouldn't worry about them being incomplete as a lot of us add to our projects after the event, so join the club.....lol

  3. Those borders are beautiful. Hope you show us the finished piece. Yvonne
