Old Cards to Share

Hello everyone! It's been a few days since my last update. I don't have any new cards to share with you today, but I thought I could show you some of my old ones from before blog-days :)

Do note that some have really poor quality photos having been taken on my phone.

So here's the first card. This one I remember having a lot of fun making it. I cut out a circle with my Spellbinders Nestabilities in the middle and put a big hole through it. Then I cut out a ring to stick behind to give the frame effect.

And I used Banner Builders banners with glitter on them on the inside so it could show through the hole I made.

The next card is another one using the HAPPY stamp from Birthday Bash Sentiments set. 

When I made all these cards, I only had Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, Smokey Shadow and Ocean Tides ink pads so I didn't have all that much to play with.

But this card did well utilising lots of PINK! It has a white frame that has been foam mounted. It's not that obvious in the photo. And the stamping was done all on the underlay (or whatever else you might call it).

And the next card doesn't get much simpler. I really don't know when I'll be able to put this card to use since all my card sending are usually done for birthdays and Christmas/New Years - which in New Zealand happens to fall in Summer season - so I end up sending Christmas cards instead.
Anyway, simplicity as always. Not much really to say except that the rustic nature of the cardstock makes so much difference!

And a close up view for the kicks!

That's it folks. Done for today! Wishing everyone a fab weekend!

Euna, these are fabulous! I love the window of your first card, the Raspberry Fizz in your second card, and the simplicity of your one layer card in your last card. I will be posting some preblog cards soon too ;).

Love these old cards. How fun to finally be able to share them with us. I really like how you created a window with those banners behind in the first card.
