First Mountain and Valley card

I had the urge to try something different despite my record with sharp objects and thought I would try mountain and valley cards, I have seen these called another name but I can't recall it. I used my Fiskars finger knife which does seem easier to control than standard knives but I think I am heavy handed.

I used a set of stamps by Tanda Stamps, and papers by The English Paper Company designed by Vanessa Arbuthnott which were perfect for this card. Images were coloured with Promarkers. I added key charms and cut tags using my Spellbinders tag die set. Blooms are Prima, and dew drops are Patti Pritilicious
I have seen this type of card finished in three different ways now, and may further experiment to find which is best.

  4. Hi Cazzy

    Thank you so much for your message. I suppose I thought I was ready to let her go to a better place, and now I can't quite believe she's gone. I miss her shouting and tripping me up, and the quiet purr you could only hear if you cuddled her really close with her throat against your ear!

    Feeling a bit better today as Mum's at home so I'm not on my own with no distraction.

    Thanks again (and love your mountain-valley card)
