Personalised Engagement Card


I have made an 8x8in white easel card. I matt and layered the top and bottom with pink and then white embossed card. I used an Embossalicious folder to emboss the white card. I die cut the valance using a Cheery Lynn die and added them to the top of the card. I die cut the lattice with a Cheery Lynn die and added that to the top of my card in between the valance. I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Tonic die. I die cut the sentiment on the bottom using a Sue Wilson die and attached it to a rectangle that I die cut with a Tonic die and then added that to a pink rectangle cut with the next size die in the nesting set. I attached this to the base of my card with foam pads so this will act as the stopper for the top of my card. The details I printed for the base of the card I die cut with an oval from a Presscut nesting set.

Personalised New Baby Card


I was asked to make a personalised new baby card in black and grey. I didn't want to use the usual dies I use for a baby card because I thought they would look odd in the colour scheme. I decided to use the Tonic teddies. I die cut them in grey and black and paper pieced them. I printed the personalised sentiments and die cut them using a Spellbinders nesting set and a nesting set from "The Works". I matt and layered the 8x8in white card with black and then grey card. I covered half of the card with white embossed card, I embossed this card with a Crafts Too embossing folder. I added grey ribbon down the centre of the card. I added the teddies and the sentiments to the card and then completed it with Tonic Nuvo drops.
