CAAH - A Little Extra Challenge #1

Hi All!

I hope you are all having a lovely day today so far.

As for me I started out making a card for the Card and a Half - A little Extra Challenge #1, where you had to make a male card using embossing folders and punches.  As most of you know, I struggle when it comes to making male cards - but this time - I was working with two co-ordinating SEI papers that I found in my stash and ended up making 4 cards in total! I am only going to show you 3 though as I have already sent one in the mail.

I used my brand spanking new Kaszazz Ezy-Press embossing folder - 5048 Round Dance and a retired Kaszazz Punch - Folk Star. The second card I also had a go at putting the stars on first and then embossing the piece (I can't remember what this is called) and I am really happy with how it turned out. I am not sure that I have a favourite! I must say a huge thankyou to Annmaree  for the lovely blue twine which she gave me last time I saw her - I think I am now addicted to twine. LOL

  2. Great work Kelly! love your cards amazing what you can do with some good papers and a few punches.....makes making blokie cards a bit easier hey> Thanks for coming to play again xxx

  3. Hey Kelly, I love these cards. I have been trying to get hold of the folk star punch, my girlfriend and I are crazy mad they retired it! Do you know anyone who wants to get rid of one????? Thanks so much for my award, I will need a bit of spare time up my sleeve but will get to reply to it soon!
