His and Hers kisses...

Happy Monday,

A double day today with 2 cards made with almost the same ingredients just changed with using different colours of Glitter Kiss to make a men's and ladies version of the same card.

I thought I would start with the mens version made in autumnal shades.

The pink version of this card was demonstrated on Hiochnada last week however I'll quickly run through the procedure.

I stared by using the take a leaf mask over a pice of bright white foundation card.  I added copper and golden sand glitter kiss using the 4 direction method ( see the video on Facebook or Youtube for this)

Next I embossed a larger 7.5 x7.5" piece of bright white with the brambles rose embossing folder and added the same 2 colour of glitter kiss starting with the copper and adding a thin layer of the gold over the top.

I then cut each of the solid leaves in the autumn leaves trio die set and using the same colours covered these with the glitter kiss, I shaped these and added them on the edge of the sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment from my Honeysuckle clear stamp set and cut it with the stitched flags die before adding glitter kiss lightly around the edge.

I made up the cards as shown with layers of copper and gold pearl foundations card and added the whole thing to 8x8" card blanks ( both actual cards for once!)

If you are at a loss for something to do this bank holiday Im demoing at Mountain Ash Crafts at halfpenny green vineyards Stourbridge why not pop along and say hi!



  1. Wow what a difference a colour makes. Great cards. I'm always looking for ideas for men's cards.
    Sorry I haven't commented recently. I've loved the cards but been very, very busy.
    Hope you have a great day.
    Happy crafting,

  32. Hi John, Two gorgeous cards, lovely colours.
    I hope your demo day is going well. I have just finished helping my hubby start off his first 'go' at homebrew, it's taken us hours and hours from start to finish, what with sterilising everything firstly, I didn't realise how much was involved, I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that it tastes nice when it's ready !! haha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
