Diolch (Thank You) Card

This my for card for the challenge over at https://digichoosday.blogspot.co.uk/

I have made a Thank you card for my sons to give their grandparents. Diolch is Welsh for Thanks



I have used an image from the lovely Winston collection at Polkadoodles. I have made a 5x7in white card and matt and layered it with turquoise card and polka card from Anna Marie. I have also used the turquoise card to layer the image. I have rounded the edges of all these elements with a punch. I have die cut the pierced flags with Sue Wilson dies in turquoise and white.

Snow globe Christmas Card


While out shopping with my Mother-in-law she told me she loved snow globes so I knew what die I was going to use for her card. I used the Sue Wilson snow globe die and the treat cups that are designed to go with the snow globe. I used turquoise card and white card to matt and layer my card. I cut an aperture with the outside edge of the snow globe die out of the white layer. I then embossed the white card with a Creative Expressions embossing folder. I cut the snow globe in turquoise and the snowman scene in white and added a light blow background to the scene. I added some glitter jewels to the treat cup the using PVA I attached acetate to encapsulate the glitter before attached the treat cup over the snowman scene. I then added the turquoise snow globe to complete. I die cut the pierced flags with Sue Wilson dies, the white flag with include a personalised sentiment. I die cut silver poinsettia with Tattered Lace die and embellished them with flat backed pearls.

Parchment butterfly birthday card


This is another card for the butterfly and turquoise lover!! I have used my Groovi plates for this project. I have done several layers. The first layer included the butterfly and a circle, I used my semi circle Pergamano tool to go around the circle. I then used my Pergamano scissors to cut a picot edge, well I tried my best!. I did my white work on the butterfly then coloured it with Spectrum Noir pencils. Using the circle and sprig Groovi plates I have made the next layer. I cut a straight edge around this circle with a standard scissors. I did my white work on the leaves and then coloured them with Spectrum Noir pencils. I then die cut a scalloped circle with a Xcut die. The next layer is also made using the circle Groovi plate. The centre of the circle is plain but I have used my semi circle Pergamano tool and scissors as I did on the butterfly layer. In the centre of each of this semi circles on this layer I have embossed a small dot. I used Pergamano glue the first two layers but I used double sided tape on the back of scalloped circle because you cant see it anyway. I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with turquoise card and white embossed card, I embossed the white card with an Embossalicious folder. I shaped the corners of these layers with a Tonic punch. I have cut a turquoise scalloped oval with a Go Kreate die to mount a personalised sentiment.
