What a way to start the hols!

I have just had a fabulous time at a craft workshop which was organised by H.G. Arts and Crafts shop at Poyton Garden Centre. The workshop was run by Jo Rice who had everything organised so we could make two fabulous cards.

It was a lovely start to my half term holiday and a fab way to spend a cold afternoon in February.
Here is the first card we made
For this one we used a piece of double sided adhesive sheet which we stamped on to. then we placed a piece of acetate over the stamped image.
Next we turned it over and removed the backing paper.
This was covered in gold flakes and the excess rubbed off.
We matted and layered it onto gold and black card and then attached it to the front of a card, added some faux stitching and 3 gold card candy!
This was the second card we made!
We used the same stamp for the topper but this time we used distress inks to stamp and colour the sides.
The base card was distressed in the same colour then over stamped with the same stamp and a verse stamp then the topper was put on it.
I really enjoyed the afternoon and the ladies who were at the workshop were a smashing bunch. I hope I get to do another one soon!
Thank you have really set me off on a crafting week!!!
