My mum in law lives in Tenerife whereas we live in the UK and unlike here in the UK greeting cards are apparently hard to come by and when you do they are rather expensive .
We were going over on holiday and she asked if I could make some light weight cards that could be sold through their weekly meeting of expats and preferably could they be for men and anniversarries so I set to work.
I started with this fab poppystamps die I just love it not only can it work for both guys and girls depending on how you colour it but you can use the words from within it to create the negative to the positive or even inlay the words if you cut 2 in different colours or even several colours to make multi-colour inlays.
I coloured my card first with brilliance dies in a band pattern as I thought it might be a little difficult colouring the letters individually once cut. The fiddly bit was getting glue on the individual letters and pushing them out of the die onto a white base card to create the second design. In hind sight I should have waited until I bought some double sided sticky sheet as it would have made this process a lot cleaner I think , something to try next time.
I was so pleased with how they turned out I decided to do some more in other colours, so the glue bit can't have been that bad.
