Sailor Boy

Hi Crafters,

Yay it's Friday!

I like using these toppers from The Hobby House, they're just great for my 6" x 6" cards and make short work of putting a card together when you haven't got to colour an image.
Don't get me wrong, I love colouring images, but there are times when a quick make is required and these help enormously.


Recipe
Image - Pre-coloured Topper - The Hobby House
Spellbinders Scalloped Squares Die
Anchor Die - Echo Park

Paper from stash

Very sweet Lorraine. Love your sailor boy image, and the scalloped frame is a great detail. hugs :)

Kat W said...

Toppers are such a great 'shortcut' but still make a special card when you pick the right papers and details to add...as demonstrated by this card; the papers and embossing are fab and it's all so beautifully themed to match the image in both colours and details like the anchor :-)
Oh, and it's totally adorable too!
Big hugs, Kat xx
