Crafty trio

Today was a craft day with my two friends Kandis and Kathy, it was also our challenge day. I was to choose the papers and the layout, the image was our own choice. I started with a 5 x7 card and then placed my chosen backing paper leaving a small border. I then cut 2 small matts from a contrasting card and layered one with the same backing paper and put twine around the other. After placing the matts onto the base card I cut my die shapes and stamped out my image and sentiment. Once I had coloured the car I placed the shapes onto the card to finish. If you would like to see what Kandis did with the layout click here. Kathy's pic here
Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog x
