Just For Fun

Pattern by Lori Whitlock (penny slider card)
Paper by Recollections (Everyday Moments)
My first project with this cutting file by Lori Whitlock is pretty cool. Two pennies are adhered to each other with a piece of circular two-sided foam tape. The pennies are inserted into the cutout on the rectangular piece of paper so that the circular foam rests on the edge of the paper with a penny on each side.

I purchased this pattern from the Silhouette online store. Lori Whitlock provides the paper backing shape (navy), the rectangular shape with cutout, and the circle in the card file.

As you tilt the card from side to side,
the pennies roll along the edge of the paper and the circle spins.

Cutting file "12 posies" by Kolette Hall via Silhouette's online  store
Last weekend I created a card set to accompany one of the boxes I made. I had used Recollections' "Everyday Moments" paper pack (from Michaels) for the box, so I used paper from the same pack along with basic white card stock from Staples for the cards. 
I created the embellishments using a cut file I purchased from Silhouette's online store. The file is called "12 posies", and it was created by Kolette Hall.

Embossing done with Cuttlebug's Paper Lace 2 folder
What I really wanted to use to add texture to this card was a damask pattern, but it turns out I do not have such a folder! In the end, I wound up using  Cuttlebug's Paper Lace 2 embossing folder. 

The shimmer is not easy to capture with a camera, but I think you can see it on the photo at the bottom of the page. I used Ranger's Perfect   Pearls mist in Pearl to give this set a shimmery effect.
