Floral Wedding Card



Another wedding card. This is the card I made to send myself.

I have matt and layered the top and bottom of my 8x8in white easel card with pink then white card. I have die cut the panels for the top of my card with a Sue Wilson striplet die. I have cut 3 panels and attached them to white card. I added satin ribbon where the strips meet. I attached the completed element to the top of my card with foam pads. Using the Sara Davies Bridal Bouquet die I have made the roses in pink card and cut the foliage in green and white. I die cut the sentiment using a Tonic die and added it to a white oval that I cut with a Presscut die from a nesting set. I die cut a pink oval with the next die in the nesting set to mount the white oval.

I attached the ovals to the striplets and then assembled the floral embellishments using a hot glue gun.

I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Tonic rectangle die from a nesting set and attached it to a pink rectangle. I attached these to the base of my card using foam pads so it will act as a stopper for the easel.  I printed the date and venue and die cut it with a Presscut die and added that to the base of my card.

I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.

Exploding box with cake


I have been asked to make this exploding box with a wedding card inside for a friend.

I have used the colour scheme of the wedding. I made the box using the measurements that you will find in the tutorials on my blog. I used navy card on the inside of my box and navy and white patterned paper on the outside of my box.

I printed personalised details including names, date and venue.

I printed the details and die cut them with dies from a set from The Works. I used the next size in the nesting set and navy card to cut elements so I could mount the white card with details.

I added these to each side of the box.

I made the 3D cake using circles and strips of white card.
I added satin ribbon and lace trim around the cake and added small paper flowers on the cake and on to each side of the box. I die cut a scalloped circle with a Xcut die and attached that to the centre of my box and then added the cake. I completed my box with flat backed pearls

Son car birthday card


I have printed a photograph of my sons car and mounted it onto silver and then blue card. I also printed a VW badge. I covered an 8x8in white card with gingham card and then white card with a printed personalised sentiment.  I added the pictures to the card. A basic card but my son will love it because he loves his car!

Football Fan birthday card





This is a simple card for a football mad young lady. I have matt and layered a 8x8in white card with red card and then blue card. I rounded all corners of the layers using a punch. I printed a personalised sentiment and images of the recipients favourite player and the badge of the club she supports. I die cut the sentiment using a Tonic die and cut a red element using a Tonic die to layer the sentiment. I cut out the two images and mounted them onto red card. I attached all these elements onto my card.
