Keep Calm

Here is a quick card that I am rather pleased with! I came across some free Portobello Road papers in a magazine and decided to use some of the A4 sheets.  I've distressed the edges with scissors and also added a running stitch around the card edge.

The topper is from Cardmarkers Delights and you can buy a set of 8 for only £1.49! I've layered it onto an offcut of the red gingham paper and some dark blue card I had in my stash.  The toppers are really good quality and are printed onto stiff white card and are totally blank on the reverse.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Samuel Taylor Crafts:  Red, White and Blue
Gingerloft:  Vintage
Sarah Hurley Challenge:  Red, White and Blue

  • Topper:  Cardmakers Delights
  • Papers:  Portobello Road - magazine freebie papers
