Joy Christmas Card


I like this card as an alternative to a traditional card. I have used a 6x6in card and covered it with purple card. I have die cut the snowflake elements in white using a Sue Wilson die for the corner and a Memory Box die for the joy. I assembled the card and completed with flat backed pearls.

Anniversary card


This is an A4 card. I have trimmed an A4 piece of gingham card. I then used another sheet of patterned paper from my stash. I trimmed this piece then put a cut in this centre to one side. I then slightly dampened the paper for the paper to curl. I inked around the edges of these pieces before sticking them to my card.

I cut a heart with a Sizzix in acetate and used gel to stick various flowers to the heart. I then attached three pieces of bakers twine to my card and then added the acetate heart. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Sizzix heart die.  To complete my card I used Tonic Nuvo drops

Anniversary card


An anniversary card for my husband.

I have folded an A4 piece of red card. I used a Sizzix set of nesting scalloped hearts.
I cut the folded card with the largest heart with the top of the heart over the fold to make a heart shaped card.

I cut another large heart and folded the top of the card which I then attached the heart to. This created an easel card. I cut small hearts to attach to the sides of the top and bottom. The  "Sent from the Heart" sentiment is cut with a Tonic Studios die. I used the smallest heart in the Sizzix set and a Xcut die for the letters for the sentiment on the smaller hearts. I printed sentiments and die cut them with the Sizzix hearts for the bottom of the card. I used the smallest heart for a stopper on the bottom, I attached that with 3d foam. I completed the card with Tonic Nuvo Drops.

Parchment butterfly card


I have accidentally deleted yesterdays post so here it is again!!

Parchment is something I have always fancied having a go at. I saw the Groovi system and decided to give it a go. This is an 8x8in white card that I have matt and layered with blue card and white embossed card. I have embossed the white card with an Embossalicious folder. I have printed a sentiment and die cut it with a Crafts Too die and cut the next size in the nesting set in blue to mount the sentiment. I have used Groovi plates to do the circles in parchment, the leaf flourishes and butterfly. I have used Pergamano tools to do the edge and piercing. I have used a Pergamano 2 needle tool, semi circle, one needle tool, scissors and glue. I have coloured the leaves and butterfly with Spectrum Noir pencils. I have die cut the scalloped circle with a Xcut die. I completed my card with Tonic Noir drops.

Thank you if you have had the patience to still leave a comment
