Precious Cargo......

Here are a couple more tri-fold concertina cards made in exactly the same way as yesterday's card. I used baby script and polka dot and gingham papers and I think that the finished cards are very soft and pretty. I used an MS punch on the pink card and an EK Success punch on the blue card. I never thought I'd say this 'cos I love MS punches, but I think that EK Success are the better punches. I've broken 3 MS punches and I feel that the punch mechanism in MS punches is really flimsy, whereas the punching handle (for want of a better word) on EK punches is much more substantial. I think that I'll be getting more of them in future.

The stork on both cards was cut from white glittercard and I drew around the baby portion onto coloured glittercard to create coloured blankets. I added a scalloped circle with an embossed plain circle holding the sentiment, which were cut from glittercard. The sentiments were cut apart to fit the circles. Ribbon, punched daisies, layered blooms
and a scattering of pearls complete the cards.
