A Card From Ann

Hi all,

I don't make cards very often but this week i wanted to try out the new Victorian Velvet & Pumice Stone Distress inks, Tim Holtz Hardware Die and Martha Stewart Lattice Arch punch that i bought from the shop.

Here is what i created.

I combined the two distress inks on a crumpled book page and stamped on the tag with a script stamp and Victorian Velvet ink.

The outside "lace" was made using the Lattice Arch punch and the Pumice Stone ink.

The keyhole was inked with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink and

painted with Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint.

I added a few Prima flowers and tied a gorgeous Prima rhinestone studded metal flower pendant to the card (This can be removed from the card and kept as a gift),

Have a wonderful and safe long weekend everyone.

  1. This is stunning Ann. I love the die cut - Are these just for sissix or will they work with a cuttlebug too?

  2. Hi Sarah, They are designed to go through the Big Shot but I used it in my Cuttlebug... Just Take out the A board.
