Here goes... My first attempt at loading some cards

You will probably guess this was for my Mum's Birthday.
I wanted something a bit bigger than the normal A4 gate fold card, so I used 2 A4 cards. The heart was made using a keepsake board. The sentiment was cut using Robo, this was the first time I'd really used the Cuttlebug embossing folders...........now I've fallen in love with them.






The heart on the box was the original card I made for Mum but once I'd completed it I just didn't like it, thought it was a bit OTT, and I didn't like the colours, I would never had sent it to anyone, so I thought I'd pop it on the box.






I enjoyed making the card and liked the way it turned out, as I had to make a few anniversary cards, I thought I would use the same format, this is what I came up with...



The names and sentiments on both cards were cut using Robo and welded using the Design Master Software.from. The photo's are not very good, as the gold one looks a bit washed out, and the Ruby was in fact a white ice card from Keepsake.









These are the boxes that went with them.



The bow on the Golden Wedding box was made using a keepsake board. The hanging triple heart on the Ruby Wedding box was cut from a template someone shared on UKS, sorry I can't remember who designed it.






Phew....I've still got to get my head around the layout process, hopefully I'll do better next time.
I'm going to try and add some blogs to the list next, and I want to change the graphic in the heading.

Hope you enjoy looking and I'd love some comments...
