Horse shoe

So I thought I would show you a couple of the CardMaking Paradise projects I've been working on of late.  I loved working with this template, such a fun card to make:

I inked all the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink and then cut the horse and rider as well as the sentiment out of backing paper; decoupage the rider, then reinforced it with card.  I then cut some grass out of green card making two layers for a 3D effect.  I finished off with glitter, flower sequins and cosmic shimmer glue for centres.

I inked all edges with Black Soot distress ink.  I found images of boots and hat on the internet and made 3D toppers.  The rope I made from embroidery thread crocheted it and used it for the hat and lasso.  Finished off with gems.

  2. These are great fun Lainey, and I Love the way you've decorated the horseshoes - they would be perfect for male or female, child or adult.

    Hope your Daughters are both fit and well, and looking forward to their Big Day.
