Like my friend Silvercrafter I am always looking for new or novel things to use on my cards, and these are the plastic cake decorations you buy for celebratory cakes. They stick down easily with silicone glue or glue dots, and there are so many styles and colours.Not only keys for 18/21, but for weddings, babies etc.The handmade paper with the gold motif came from a pack I bought from The Works stationers outlet- I often find useful stuff in there- not only paper, but paints, artists pastels  (the same thing as crafters chalks, just cheaper!), all sorts of art products as well as craft books.

Fathers Day cards made with peeloffs

Peeloffs can be used to good effect, I know a lot of people look down on them, but they can make some very cool, really quick cards. And if you haven't a stamp for the perfect wording for your card, they are ace. They also let you individualise a card with the recipients name- adults & children alike love this.

A Fathers Day card

This is quite a simple card, made by sticking celtic medallion peeloffs from Craft Creations, onto coloured Plasma, then cutting out. I also replaced all the little waste squares back into the design.I used a blue plasma, and a scrap of pearlescent black card. The blue marble paper is also from Craft creations, which I mounted on the top half of the card. The black panel is an Italian Poetry stamp( Hero Arts, S1832) stamped in Silver Encore Pigment ink onto Black paper, edged with a silver border peeloff. The medallions were stacked using silicone glue,then onto a scrap of the marble blue paper, then onto silver card leaving a border each time.  A smaller one added to the bottom of the card for balance.Wording is also from Craft Creations
