A couple of those hard to make cards

A band member has lost his Mum and I was asked to make a card for him and his wife from all of us. The bottom one is the one they chose so the other will go into my box. Used Sissix long swirl die, Cuttlebug embossing folder and and SU stamp for the bottom one. The side panel on the top one is the waste from the Sizzix die.

Materials used:

Hammered card
Black pearlised card
Linen card
Glossy Accents
Glamour Dust
Little Claire stamp
Cuttlebug folder
Sizzix die
Caran D'Ache watercolour pencils
Ribbon scrap
