ABC Design Team Card

Good morning everyone and here we are another week gone by. Wednesday is ABC day and what fabulous creations we had last week you all liked making cards for a child. Thank you so much to everyone who played along last week and also a warm welcome to any new creators joining in for the first time. I love visiting all your blogs and seeing your scrummy creations.

Another letter of the alphabet gone so now we are on to "D" so what is D for then?


  • Stamp - Gorjuss Girl by Sugarnellie, freebie stamps from mag
  • Ink - Close to Cocoa SU, Versacolor Umber
  • Card size - 6" square
  • Technique - Lyra crayons and waterbrush
  • Papers - Anna Griffin
  • Envelope punch - Woodware
  • Cuttlebug - Script embossing folder

Get out your distress inks, sandpaper, files you name it and get distressing that card. i have embossed my tag with script cuttlebug folder and then sanded it with some sandpaper and inked over the top with a versacolor inkpad. I inked around the edges of my paper and tag too with Close to cocoa. the swirls were from a freebie stamp set in a magazine and I randomly stamped a few on the paper around the edges for effect. I have added a marabou feather behind the tag, scrummy. My Gorjuss girl is coloured using my Lyra crayons and a waterbrush and then cut out. All the other embellishments are from my stash. This card is for my mum for Mother's day so I will be making a box for it. Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your distressed cards. Have a super day.

Only one more sleep to the SECC :)
