Robyn's creations

Robyn has had a few of her cards on our blog now. She is always making something quirky.  The card below was make for her son's birthday. The fold of the square card is at the top. The embossed card has been made using the Sizzix Diamond Plate embossing folder. This pattern also looks great in when used with metallic card and foil board. A larger circle has been cut from the centre and edged in gold twine which was glued on by hand to cover the inside edge. I bet that took a bit of patience!!!!! The globe was cut out of the Timeless Kaiser paper pad and also edged in gold twine and suspended from the top of the card (the string was secured under the embossed layer).

The card below is a great variation of a card that we had recently displayed in the shop. I had used it on a large card base (6.5" square) as I had wanted to show customers how you could use this print from the paper pad. This particular print is one that the card makers often refer to as a scrapbooking print. We put it on a larger card to show you how you could use it as the full print. Robyn has used the print and cut it down. She selected the part of the print that she wanted and cut it to fit on a standard card. She then stamped in StazOn the Eiffel Tower onto acetate, attached it behind the stamped frame and mounted it onto the card. 1 print, 2 great ideas. The paper and stamps used in this card are from the Kaiser Bonjour collection. The paper pad is in stock at the moment. The stamps will be back in stock next week.
