There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial

The grey card and cut and emboss folder were used together 

I used the cut and emboss folder to cut a number of cream pieces of card. I glued these all together to give me depth and glued a sheet of acetate over the top


I stamped Mum and stencilled the hearts on a separate piece of card


This was filled with the confetti, glued together and left to dry

 On the fawn coloured card I heat embossed the happy birthday sentiment from Sizzix 



This was glued into the card base.

Handmade Card Unicorn and Coffee

I am loving shaped cards at the moment. They are just a little different. When I purchased the Polkadoodles Sparkle Collection I got the cut files within the bundle. I really want sure I would use them but am loving them with this bashful unicorn
