Playing with Fran-táge!

Good Afternoon!

I've been a little out of the cardmaking mood just recently (I don't know why!) but I finally had some inspiration just before heading to bed last night... which had to wait until this morning!



I've used the baubles topper from our CD Christmas Extravaganza and all papers from the CD too. The blue plaque which is just visible in the background is made from a plaque on the CD which I enlarged. 

Over the weekend, I've become slightly obsessed with using Fran-táge... it's amazing! If you've never tried it, it's so fun! I've used the powders & fragments on the cream layer across the card, along with using the same technique with some ordinary gold embossing powder I didn't know we had. It's just around the edge of my topper too and I've also covered the Snowflake die-cuts.

The two corners are taken from a square metal embellishment (I cut it in half) which we will be stocking soon (I'm making a list of goodies to buy from the supplier as we speak!) - they're great and as you can see, I've added fran-táge on top, along with some Distress Crackle Paint in Picket Fence!

As always, I've used my favourite Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Gathered Twigs - to stamp my sentiment, I've used Tuxedo Black Memento ink & the sentiment itself is from the Traditional Wreath stamp set (£3.00).

Flowers are from the supply we have and you can pick up the small pink ones online here - I've also used a memo pin to hold the sentiment.

Hope you like it!

I'm off for another play with my fran-táge - have a lovely day!
