Today I have a really cool card to share, it’s a Tuxedo Card, and the possibilities from this card are endless, change the lapels, add a funky tie, a plaid shirt, I am sure you can come up with lots of variations.

I did post this yesterday but I think the mice have been at my video because there were black bits and it was all very strange, so here is a new and fully operational video. Thanks for all the message and emails about it.

Do send me pictures of your cards that you have made I love to see them, you can email me !

This is the card I made on the video using the fabulous “Jelly Tots” also known as Faceted Gems, and below is the original card I made using the no longer available black dot, but don’t worry if you prefer that look, just get out a black sharpie marker and colour in your pearls!
