Good Morning Ladies,
Well I think it's safe to say the we are all pretty much capable of making cards without any dies!!!
It just goes to prove that we all used to manage perfectly well without them, yet strangely we hardly ever sit down to make a card that doesn't feature a die anywhere, for the most part the die is the main element on the card, so at first the thought of sitting down to make a card without dies seemed daunting but once I had made mine it made me look round at the other things that I had, stamps, embossing folders etc that I used to use all the time but since I have used dies to create my cards I hardly even look at them. So maybe we should all vow to make at least one card a month without any dies!
I was absolutely amazed at how resourceful you all were,
Anne, I love the embossing folder you have used, it looks like one of the Spellbinders 3d folders, it has so much detail and you have matched that perfectly with those Clarity stamps down the side.
Brenda, your card looks so feminine and delicate, I love the look of that simple embossing folder on that Linen card, finished beautifully with lace and ribbon.
Janet, I love your cute little dress card that you have used Sue's Rows of Bows Embossing folder to add with detail to the dress with, so sweet.
Lilian, your rainbow of card looks striking and really effective, I also featured an older card of yours where you have used the Crafts Too free embossing folder, simply adding a few flowers that are the perfect finishing touch to a stunning card.
Lynda, Wow, what an opulent card, Lynda covered some card with Tin Foil, then embossed it with Sue's Rambling Blossom embossing folder, she them went over the embossed card with Gold Gilding polish, what an amazing effect Lynda, you have finished the card by mounting some of Amanda's lace onto some black card and added a few dazzlers. A real WOW card!!
Maria, a stunning card from you, you have embossed the tree into some silver card and then adorned the tree with pretty gemstones that twinkle perfectly, what a fantastic card.
Michele, wow, I love that Christmas tree embossing folder, just adding it to the edge of the card like that gives such an impact, the little gems are the perfect finishing touch along with the simple Christmas Greeting, this looks a real 'high end' card.
Sonia, love the effect of embossing the gold textured card with that fabulous embossing folder, the border of embossed flowers with that simple greeting, like Michele's, looks like a card you would find in the expensive 'Department stores'.
Val, Such a sweet Christmas card, I love that embossing folder you have used, the addition of the washi tape/ribbon across the bottom to pop your Santas on looks fabulous, I love the sentiment you have used too.
Margaret, I love the embossing folder you have used, that little dog is just so adorable, I love your choice of colours for the curtains and flowers, your colouring is so neat too! A really cute little happy birthday card.
Brenda, what a stunning card, you have designed, I love the embossing folder you have used, the colours you have chosen work so well together too, those added gems finish your card perfectly, this card would brighten anyone's day xxx
I added an older card of mine using the Crafts Too embossing folder, I love this folder as it creates a whole card front with one pass, you just need to add embellishments.
I would like to say a Huge Heartfelt Thanks to each and every one of you for taking part in this challenge, I really enjoyed it and I know that a lot of said you did in your emails, thank you so much for making my efforts so worthwile. xxx
I hope that you are all wrapping up warm, as we appear to have jumped forward to Autumn, it has been so chilly this past couple of days, Paul actually put the heating back on he was so chilly!! Can one of you perform a 'Sun' Dance, as we have had enough rain for a few weeks!
Love and hugs to all,
