January Counterfeit Kit ~ 2 Cards

Here’s the first couple of projects I made with my January Counterfeit Kit – a couple of cards!
The first was for my Mum, for her birthday which was on New Years Eve:
I got the idea to do the banner flags on the left from this card by Valerie O’Neall, but I tied the twine from my kit around mine instead of stitching.
My flair is attached using a 3D Foam Dot that I could stick my pin into as well. And I’ve got my trademark scattering of bling!:
The second card is for my Nan’s birthday, on the 10th of January:
I added some velvet ribbon on this one to make it softer, and chose a more ‘retro’ look. To make the kraft flag I just cut a rectangle, then gently folded it in half at the left and right edges, and cut from the corner to the middle so the ends would be even.
I know she’ll like the cluster of buttons and bits:
These two cards were so quick to make, because I was keeping to my kit and not delving through all my stash!
See you soon, x
