Wedding Exploding Box


I have used a Crafters Companion die set to create this box. I cut the elements in white card. I covered the panels using navy card. I traced inside the die to create the shape for the corners and cut with scissors. By tracing inside the die it allows for the white border like the other panels. I printed personalised sentiments and die cut them. I cut strips of white card and small white circles. I cut small slits into the card along the length on both sides, this creates glue flaps. I attached the white circle die cut. I used the technique to make two sizes to create tiers for a cake. I decorated the cake with lace, ribbon and paper flowers. I attached the cake to the centre of my box with hot glue I added die cuts to decorate the inside of the box. I attached personalised details onto the lid of the box and completed this with ribbon

Thank you at Christmas time card


I wanted to make a Christmas card with a thank you sentiment.

I have matt and layered my 7x7inch white card with red and gold holographic card. 

I cut the white card to size and then used a Crafters Companion die to cut the sentiment at an angle.

I attached the white card to my card blank. I paper pieced the sentiment with the red holographic card. I die cut the poinsettia using Tattered Lace dies. I assembled the poinsettia and completed them with a flat backed pearl. I added the poinsettia to my card. I die cut the Christmas sentiment and added it to ovals which I cut the Presscut dies before attaching it to my card.

Christmas Bauble and Star


I have made these decorations using Tonic Studios die sets. 

I have made them to match the colour scheme of my usual decorations. 

I made the construction of both of these with white card. I cut the panels and decorations using gold and brown card. I made the finial for the bauble with gold mirror card for an authentic finish. I completed the projects with a pearl embellishment and satin ribbon. I added these to a jewellery stand to display them
