Today I’m here to show you some cards I’ve made from different size scraps of gold mirror card. Because I had quite a few pieces of this card I’ve made a small batch of four for my mum – one A6 size and three of the small square shaped cards.
I purchased this embossing folder from some money that I got for Christmas. I do love these embossing folders, because I adore the depth and texture they give. You can make cards quickly and either make them CAS or add loads to them. I’m attempting to make some thin ones for mum so that she doesn’t have to pay for the extra postage. I’m playing a lot with my embossing folders and coming up with more ideas of using them. It’s funny that I have not used my Christmas embossing folders for a while but I vowed that I would make quite a few minimal depth cards this year, we need to pay less postage costs this year!

I’m sorry that these photographs are not too good. I’ve found out that photographing mirror card is a nightmare, but I think you can see the embossed pattern!
