Two traditional cards

After all the Tim Holtz tags, here are two more traditional card. I love playing with my inks and sprays, but I love playing with beautiful papers and dies too, so here goes. One is an Easter card and the other a thank you card for a friend who did me a great kindness.

And card number two:

Stamps are from Just Rite and from Flourishes

Wow! Astrid, both of your cards look AMAZING! I love how you dry embossed the cross and added the color. If that's what you did. It's beautful!
And what die is that die for your sentiment panel?
Gorgeous, gorgeous creations!
Hugs and smiles

Hello Astrid - your Easter card is beautiful! it must have taken ages to do, but very well worth it. May I just wish you a very Happy Easter if you celebrate it, or a very nice Easter holiday if you don't. Hugs from Mary G x

Oh wow, you do make such pretty creations Astrid. These are both beyond gorgeous and I can just imagine how touched your friend was to receive her thankyou card. It's really beautiful and that delicate corner swirl is right at the top of my wish list.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
