A few cards made recently

Good afternoon,

I wanted to show you a few of the cards I've made recently.

I am heading into a new stage of crafting as I recently treated myself to a Big Shot Plus. I've never owned a die cutting machine before (even though I've wanted one for ages) but never had the guts to spend in excess of £100 on one crafting thing! But I did it and plunged head first and all I can say is I LOVE IT!

I bought it at the recent Crafting Live show at Doncaster Racecourse (along with lots of other beautiful things) and I couldn't wait to open it when i got home and some of the cards below are what I made using it.

This was a card I made for two of my friends. They'd recently got engaged and I thought this card was the perfect sentiment for them.
I used some papers and toppers from an old Making Cards for Special Occasions magazine.

This was a card I'd made for a friends birthday. She loves all things sewing and I couldn't resist the opportunity to use the Hunkydory card and toppers that match her personality.

This card was made using my new die cutting machine and two of the free dies I got to choose to accompany my purchase. I loved this little dog and thought it went great with the black and white theme with red accents.
Not bad for my first go at die cutting if I do say so myself!

This was also made with another of the free dies I got with my machine. I had this idea for a clean and simple card made with rainbow sentiments. I love the way this turned out albeit a little fiddly to line all of the 'thank you's' up in the right place.

That's all the cards for the time being but there are lots more to come in the next few weeks. Please keep checking back and of course I'll notify you by social media once I get a new post uploaded.

Many thanks for reading as always.
