Out of the Drawer - Cards from the UFO box

I have found it a little difficult over the last few days, to combine Blogtober with prepping for the retreat :-)  I have today off work, so for today's post I have taken two half-made cards from the UFO box and completed those LOL.
Both cards had a matted piece of patterned paper from a 6" paper pad and that was it. I stamped and embossed a large sentiment from Woodware in two different colours, matted those and attached to the prepped bases.  It took longer than it should have, I couldn't seem to get a decent embossed image, think I might be feeling a little stressed!

The OotD items are the card bases and the embossing powders - the orange is American Crafts 'Apricot', not previously used, and the purple is Stampendous 'Metallic Purple'  which I may have used once before but am not quite sure LOL.
I must dig further into that UFO card box - there were some in there I had forgotten about and now have ideas for..... :-)

  2. Lovely cards, that poppy one is really gorgeous.
