Shaving Foam and Cricket

 Welcome

This card was made using a recycled image from a commercial card as the focal point.


The image was fussy cut and mounted off the edge of an orange oval, cut with a spellbinders die.


and mounted over a Shaving Creme background I made some time ago.


The sentiment was gold embossed onto a double ended (die cut) tag and mounted using brads


The brads were plan brass ones, so I heated and embossed them with Tinsel Green embossing powder.
