More little cards

I love little cards, as you may have noticed. Here’s a group of little cards I made a while ago – now I realise why I’ve completely run out of Lavender Lace cardstock. Must put it on my next order.

The holes are made using the paper piercing technique. Stampin’ Up! sells the perfect tools for this technique in the Crafters’ Tool Kit (p85). The best piece of equipment is the paper piercing template, which is made of thick plastic and has rows of perfectly lined-up holes for you to follow. You lay it over your project and then pierce through the holes – you can even do zig-zags. The template also features larger holes for perfect eyelet setting.

Stamps: Birthday Best (p34)
Cardstock: Gable Green, Lavender Lace, Almost Amethyst, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Stampin’ Write® markers, Crafters’ Tool Kit (p85)

    This is as far down your blog as I've managed to get today - but will be back to finish off later. I really like your style - both card making and blogging. Feel very inspired! Now need to get off the computer and make some cards!
