60th Birthday Grand Prix Card & Angelina Fibres Shoe Card

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I haven't posted for a little while but have just returned from hols in Cornwall.  We were very lucky with the weather, it was hot and sunny for most of the time, we only had one afternoon when it poured down, but we visited a beautiful victorian estate and so were indoors for most part.

I am posting two cards today the first being my daughter in law's father's 60th card, they are all at Silverstone this weekend for the Grand Prix, so hope the weather holds out for them.  I mainly used F1 die cuts, along with co-ordination card stock, Bazzil on the edge card strips, some black cardstock from my stash and spellbinders ribbon banners and eyelet circles dies.  Some B & W ribbon and card candy buttons.  I decorated the inside similar to the front and typed the verse onto white card and cut out using labels 8 die and quickcutz photo corners.

My second card is a birthday card for my boss, who loves buying shoes, so this card is very appropriate...
I used an EK success doily punch with a variation of pearl card from stash, along with SB shapeabilities in spades die.  For the shoe I stamped into angelina fibre with an Encore Ultimate Metallic Gold ink pad, finished off with a few small gems and ribbon.  See you all soon.  Dee xxx


  1. Two great cards - I've never tried angelina fibres but I really like the result you've achieved.
