Hello friends, sorry for the delay in blog posts towards the end of the week, my nan has come to visit so I have been spending some lovely time with her.
On Wednesday I shared these awesome Gel Filled Cards using real hair gel!
The blue gel in these cards gives them a really authentic pond look and they are very tactile too!
I have used supplies from the new Underwater World collection by Paper Discovery, I’ve loved mixing the stamped images and the die-cut pieces together to build these pond scenes.
I love the frog and the lily pads and the Herring bird below looks wonderful.
The 6 x 6 cut and emboss, pond embossing folder is fantastic and really makes these cards.
I used a Fuse Tool to hold the gel in place however I do show you other ways to seal the bag in my tutorial below.
SUPPLIES USED TO MAKE THESE CARDS
