Card-toppers are the focal point that every project needs, whether it's an image or a single flower
Toppers are basically any thing that you can stick to the top of your card to dress it up.
They can be as plain or as intricate as you want.
Perhaps you want a picture of a landscape or an elegant lady to grace your cards.
Maybe just a single flower that can say so much.
You can buy them ready made and there are always a plentiful supply in all the craft shops.
But a really satisfying way is to make your own.
Try stamping out an image and colouring it in with your favourite medium
