I attended a workshop a little while ago run by the fabulous Paula Pascual the first session was Impressabilities: making cards with those lovely intricate embossing templates, they look so fragile you wouldn't believe you can put them through a Big Shot and they can survive, but they do, and they did - Here's what I made in the workshop:

I didn't quite get time to finish this card, and completely forgot until now that I still haven't finished it! - All it needs is a few square diamontes across the middle band - Will rectify that tomorrow. Isn't it a beautiful card, and so simple to make. I love that die.

Another Christmas Card, I love that we made Christmas Cards, gives me more ideas for this Christmas - I have so many to make. This one looks really complicated but once you have the design I promise you its easy - I managed to smudge the 'perfect pearls' I need something to 'set' them - anyone got any ideas?

I really, really love the template we used on this card, unfortunately they didn't have one left in the shop so I have to add it to my 'wish list', the die is gorgeous too :O)


Designer Papers: My Minds Eye - Pretty Please Collection
Cardstock: Bazzill: Various colours (not noted, sorry)
