Here are my two cards for the Twofer Card Challenge #36, where the theme is up to you.
For both cards I used a mandala stamp fromPapirdersign. I made an appreciation card and a congratulations card for an anniversary.
1) ANNIVERSARY/CONGRATULATIONS CARDThe background was heat embossed with white and inked with eggshell. The edges were cut with a border die from Pinkfresh studios. A third mandala was stamped and fussy cut and layered with foam. Two wooden birds from my stash and a sentiment.
2) APPRECIATION CARD
The mandala was stamped twice, over the edge, heat embossed with gold on black. The sentimetn was stamped on a strip and golden sequins were added.
