Two totally different looks with the same stamp set. I've used Great Friend from the new Mini - love it!
The first card has a layer of vellum which I've edged with the Eyelet Border Punch. It reminds me of lace, so pretty. Tricky to punch through I must admit - I used a post it note for extra heft when punching the vellum. I think I saw the idea on Claire Daly's blog? I'll come back later and edit with a link when I check.
The second card is a CASE of one I saw on Splitcoasters (again I'll edit later to link to the original artist). It has emboss resist (the white flourish) and a lot of sponging, plus a subtle use of the En Francais background stamp.
I have to put children to bed now, so I'll be back later.
