Some Cards!

Hello patient readers - I'm here today with some cards for you.  Things are good - my baby is kicking and kicking (and kicking!), I am feeling healthy and VERY happy, and have just returned home after 3 weeks off and about, including an anniversary trip to Bruges!  So it's about time I blogged, and shared some things.
Nothing brand new yet, just some of the cards I have published in June and July's CARDS magazine.
First, this CAS one layer card.  I did some dry embossing and masking to create the frame effect.  I think THIS Hero Arts butterfly is my favourite.

I love THIS set of owls.  Here I added Glossy Accents to create the tear drops.

And finally, I think I shared this once before... but hey ho.

I am determined to spend the next 3 weeks of my holiday creating... something at least.  I plan to make some bunting for my baby's room, and finish a quilt I started months ago, and who knows... maybe some STAMPING too. :)  I promise I will share whatever I make.
Until then, have a great day. xx

Did you dry emboss first or mask first? That is really lovely in its simplicity. I'd like to try it! Hints?
