Memory box week with Neil and Karen

One theme, two hosts, two cards today: our guest designer Karen and Neil have created truly elegant cards for you.
Ladies first... Karen...

I cut 4 Chloe Stems from copy paper and used them as a mask with milled lavendar Distress Ink on the Tando Plaque.  I cut another from a scrap of patterned paper and glued it in the centre, adding glossy accents to enhance it.  I edged the plaque with frayed Burlap Distress Ink.  Using the edge of a lovely lace border stamp & milled lavendar I went around the edges of the card and also coloured the tape.
I stamped 'imagine' and cut it out with a nestabilites before adding more ink to match..

Karen used the following products

Elegant to me is always black, white and simple so that's what I went for.
Pretty self explanatory I guess. I used a white card and added a strip of black card across.
I added the memory box die to the left and some gems top and bottom. of the card.

I used the outer frame of the sizzix Inside Out die to spell out Thank you.

  2. Love what Karen has done as her central image - very effective. Like the masculine feel of Neil's card - must remember to use black and white more!

  3. Fab cards. I like the stencil Karen has used. Very pretty indeed. Not really considered Kanban products until I saw this. TFS.
