I've been playing around with the new July design kits from Crafty Templates. There were so many to chose from but I opted for these....
My first card used the Watermelon Slice template.
These are super cute images and I knew exactly what sentiment I was going to use for this card. I printed the images out and coloured with Promarkers and then cut them out.
I printed out the sentiment from my computer then cut out using my oval nesties. I used a WMS stamp to create the delicate border. I added a seam binding bow which I sprayed with water and scrunched to create a more crinkled look. I finished with a little red spotty button!

For my second, I used the Sunshine Badge template....
This was such a fiddly project to work on. I had decided to use the template as the central image and then use my PTI dies to create the base of the badge/rosette. I thought I'd have a go at using ribbon to add around the outside. Oh my, this was very fiddly to do, the ribbon kept coming unstuck so I ended up taking the ribbon off and starting again - still with difficultly though. I used the 'tails' template to create the ribbon tails, although I trimmed them a little thinner so that they would fit inside the width of the ribbon. I added the words '1st Place' but could have used 'Best Dad' or similar.
