Elegant lady cards using Hunkydory Gorgeous Gingham die cut topper sheet

As you can probably tell, I do like these elegant lady topper sheets from Hunkydory - here's another selection of cards made using them.

I used the largest topper from the sheet on the 8 x 10" card above, with a backing of Basic Grey paper. I mounted both picture and greetings toppers with self adhesive foam. The card has been finished with a strip of white velvet effect ribbon and a large black and white flower, with a jewel brad centre. I had just enough of the same paper to also cover the 6 x 4" card below. I mounted the topper onto mats made with rectangular nestabilities dies, then added a good sprinkling of grey, pearl and black Kanban Pearl gems to the background paper.
The card below is an A5 card, made from an A4 piece of black card, folded in two. The topper has been layered onto mats made with rectangular nestabilities, then onto black textured handmade paper (unfortunately this hasn't shown up well in the picture) and silver self adhesive paper. The card has been finished off with a black velvet ribbon strip and a grey flower with tiny gem brad centre.
I've used half of the tag from the topper sheet for the card below, with a Kanban Bling gem over the silver dot. Again, I've used nesties for the matting, and some co-ordinating handmade paper, onto a blue A6 card, with a Card Art greetings banner.
The card below mixes silver and gold, which both feature in the handmade paper used as the largest mat on the card. The card is A5, made from an A4 sheet of gold moondust card folded in half. The topper has been mounted onto a mat cut from gold mirri card using a scalloped square nestabilities die, and I added a strip of gold ribbon at the bottom of the card.
The foiled and die cut Hunkydory topper sheet that I used to make the cards is pictured below. Each topper sheet contains a selection of picture and greetings toppers for your card craft projects, so you can make several cards from each sheet. Toppers can be matted and layered or mounted with foam pads or silicone adhesive for extra dimension.
Foil Play stocks a wide range of goodies from Hunkydory, to help you to create beautiful cards, including die cut and traditional decoupage, die cut toppers, rubber stamps and more. If the name isn't familiar, you will probably have seen Hunkydory products on the Create & Craft TV shopping channel, presented by Cardcraft Plus.
