I bet you didn't know that there's a gumleaf and gumnut stamp in the Stampin' Up! catalogue! Well, there's not really, but Bodacious Bouquet has saved the day again. My Aunt asked me to make some Australiana-themed thankyou cards for her to take overseas with her. My first thought was "Don't tell me I'll have to buy that ugly Australian animal set??", but then inspiration struck! So, do they look enough like gumnuts? And do you like my faux eyelets?
Well you had me fooled when I read "we have gum nuts". I think it looks very Australian.ReplyDelete
I have no idea what "gumnuts" are... but I LOVE the card!! Beautiful!ReplyDelete
Your inspiration is brilliant Marelle - they look very Australian! How did you do the faux eyelets? with a marker or is it cardstock?ReplyDelete
Very Aussie Marelle and if you hadn't have pointed it out I wouldn't have noticed the faux eyelets, so what is the secret. How to?ReplyDelete
Yep...it is a VERY Australian looking card, especially with the shades of green/olive for the leaves! Please do share the faux eyelet secret. It is marker?ReplyDelete
You've done it again Marelle, another brilliant idea! I never thought I would use that berry stamp (or whatever it is supposed to be), but now I can use a very floral set to make a very blokey card!ReplyDelete
Sheesh, another fab idea!!ReplyDelete
