Bentley Hotel Craft Event

We made this card at my craft club a few weeks ago, well one in different colours and I decided to have another go, but to make it as a card for the boys using the fabulous stamp set from the Stampin' Up! mini Plane and Simple.  I'm not sure what type of card you call it, but for want of a better name I'll call it a zig zag card.  To create the aged look I used my Distressing Essentials kit, but also a little bit of lemon juice.  If you 'flick' droplets onto your project and let them dry first, you can create this stained effect when you heat it with your heat gun.   I've also included itty bitty clear buttons which leads me nicely on to tell you about our craft event at The Bentley Hotel on Saturday 15 October at 2pm.  We'll be making projects that would work really well for men and ladies, but we'll also be using these fab little buttons to great effect.
 The early bird booking price is £15 if booked and paid for by Mon 26 September and thereafter it's £17.50.  Your ticket price includes materials for the projects, a la carte stamp, door prize entry and a fun afternoon spent with like minded people.  To book your place please email me or call 01507 525885
Remember that this stamp set is only available until the end of the month as are the Newsprint papers used here. 
Back soon. Zx
