A little bit of playing

Well I did do another two of the bxs yesterday and they have gone over to the shop I went there today and 3 of my mothers cards have been sold so chuffed ,Kate asked me could I put Easter eggs in these type of bxs   I have said I will try so when I go shopping I will have to get some ,
The card I made with my sister`s stamp I thought I had taken a Photo but no  and it`s now at the shop,
So the next card was a little of playing around with the new dies ,

So here it is

8*8 cream card stock
Centural pearl card for die cuts ,Paper behind the die cuts was free with a mag
A4 embossing folder
my corners are from one die cut into 4, I did want to put the corners onto the square I had made but I didn`t look right so the ended up as corners on the card,
I would surgest that wax paper is used with these dies as can be a bit tricky getting the card out
Ribbon and candy from stock

Thanks for stopping by
