Cards for Ducks...

Happy Thursday,

I have just been scrolling through my photos albums as the card I made for today isn't dry enough to photo (I've been going a little mad with the papyrus card and wanted to show you another with it)  therefore I have been checking for a card to post and found this one I made for Mrs Ducks birthday!  I say mad for I made it for the POD shows earlier in the year and when Mrs D spotted it she said it was her birthday card and so It became!

I stared by stamping the glazed tile three times on Aqua card using true white embossing powder,  I then cut each one out using the matching dies form the Kaefalonia die set form Sue Wilson to make this buckle card.


  1. Morning John, a gorgeous card and love the Aqua colour Mrs Duck was very lucky hope you still have it Ang.
