Craftwork cards blackboard bicycle card

Hello, design elf Katrina here to show you what I have been up to in my craft nook.

    I know we are rushing towards Christmas at what feels like top speed but I thought I would just stop to take a breath and make some cards using the Craftwork Cards Blackboard set before I start on the Christmas ideas.

   This is another great set from Craftwork Cards this time using a black background throughout. Now I don't use black really in my crafting but they released a Blackboard Christmas kit last year and I must admit I really enjoyed using it and the cards look lovely. So do give this kit or the Christmas one which is available in the shop too, a try they do make beautiful cards and, as all Craftwork cards kits, are so easy to use.

   This kit is the same as the others with a pad of papers, die cut toppers and a bag of their Candis

 For my first card I chose the bicycle paper in the pad. Their papers are designed so well, you can use the image on the paper by itself, as I have done here and there is still plenty of the paper to use in another project.

As you can see there are lots of other pastel colours you can use to compliment your image, I chose the soft duck egg blue from the Core-dinations range.

I chose one of the backing papers and backed it with the same colour Core dinations card.

Another of the papers in the pad has lots of little icons you can cut out and layer.

Then to finish off I used one of the die cut sentiments in the corner.

Add some spots of glitter pen and some shine on the berries using the a glaze pen and you are done.

You can find this kit in the shop here -

 Hope you like this card and have a look at the kits, they are something different to play with.

Till next time,
