Some New Cards

Afternoon everyone
I've just finished tweaking my header using Serif CraftArtist (which I love, love, love!), it now looks so much better.

Again this was printed off a few times and cut out.  I add a piece of acetate behind the cut out windows (sorry my photo's not very good!) for a bit of realism.  I used foam pads this time for dimension (mainly because I hate using glue...because I make such a

Hope you like them.
