Twisted Easel Wedding Card


I have made a 8x8in white twisted easel card. I have matt and layered the top and bottom with red and then white card. I have die cut the valance and trellis for the top of the card using Cheery Lynn dies.

Arsenal supporter wedding card


I was asked to make another card for the Arsenal supporter.

I have used a 8x8in card and folded the top to make an easel card and cut into the crease with a Tonic Header die. I matt and layered the top and bottom of the card with red card and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Creative Expressions embossing folder. 

I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Spellbinders die and added a red scalloped heart die cut with a Sizzix die.  I die cut the ornate die using a Spellbinders die. On the bottom of the card I have attached a couple cut with a Cheery Lynn die. scalloped ovals cut with Sizzix dies, sentiment cut with a Sue Wilson die. I attached the red heart with foam pads so it will act as the stopper for the easel. I printed a small Arsenal badge that I found on the internet and added that to the bottom of the  card.

Wedding card for Arsenal supporter


I have had a request for a wedding card for a couple who are having a red colour scheme because the groom supports Arsenal and they wanted an Arsenal badge on it.

I have made an easel card using an 8x8in white card. I have matt and layered both the top and bottom of my card with red and white embossed card. I embossed the white card using the Creative Expressions cascading hearts folder. 

For the top of my card I have die cut the valance twice. the bride and groom twice, once in red and once in dark blue and the lattice twice in red and dark blue all with Cheery Lynn dies.  I assembled my card using P.V.A glue. I attached the lattice slightly offsetting them to create a drop shadow. I then attached the red bride and groom and cut the groom off the other die cut and attached it over the red groom.

For the bottom of my card, I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Sizzix scalloped heart die I then mounted it on another heart cut with the next size in the nesting set. I then cut the flourish using a Cheery Lnn die before assembling the elements. I found the Arsenal badge image on the internet and cut it out and added it to some red card before attaching to the card.

I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops

Champagne glasses 50th Anniversary


I have made a 8x8in white easel card and matt and layered the top and bottom with gold and white card. For the top I have die the Sue Wilson strip dies three times and assembled them together in the centre, I die cut two glasses with a Brittania die. I added an oval of acetate behind the top of the glass to enable me to add embellishments for "bubbles". I die cut the heart using a Sizzix die and added the numbers that I cut using Tattered Lace dies. I assembled these elements. I then added Tonic Nuvo drops and a flower. I left this to dry before starting the bottom. 

For the bottom I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Sizzix scalloped heart die. I then cut the next size the nesting set in gold card. I also cut a flourish using a Cheery Lynn die. I assembled these elements using foam tape for the hearts so they will act as a stopper the top of the card.

18th birthday card



This is a personalised 18th birthday card for my sons girlfriend. I have used the Tattered Lace essential book die. I have used the dies to cut purple and white layers alternatively. I have embossed the white layers with a Crafts Too embossing folder, I attached these layers to an A4 card after curling the layers around a rolling pin. I have added a 18th key, I picked these up from Home Bargains, they are like the keys that were once popular in boxes as keepsakes. I have added flowers to decorate the key. I have used a Go Kreate scalloped ovals. I cut one oval in purple and then printed a personalised sentiment and die cut with the next size down in the nesting set. I die cut the bookmarks that come with the book dies. I cut this in purple and white and embossed the white to match the book. I added purple ribbon to the bookmark. The "18 today" is die cut with Tattered Lace dies and I added that to the bookmark. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.

I so need to crack on with my Christmas cards. I have made some but I still have loads to make.

I have matt and layered this card with blue, silver and white embossed card, I have used a Creative Expression embossing folder and a Sue Wilson die to cut the snowglobe. I have added sticky back lace ribbon. I die cut the sentiment using a Crafts Too die, I cut it in blue and silver card and slightly offset when attaching them to my card. I added green card for the holly in the bottom of the snowglobe

Ice skating girls

I added sticky backed lace ribbon to the edges of the embossed card. I then attached the image.

Glittery perfume bottles birthday card


I have used a scalloped 8x8in white card and matt and layered it with dark brown pearlised card and gold card. I then used the Sue Wilson eternal ring and cut it three times in the brown card. I then attached them together on white card stock using P.V.A. I cut around this and then attached it to my card. I die cut the decorative part of the Sue Wilson perfume bottles in the dark brown card and then attached some double sided sticky sheets to white card and die cut them with perfume bottle shapes. I attached the decorative piece of the bottles to the stick side and then covered with Tonic Nuvo gold glitter. I attached the perfume bottles to my card with foampads. I printed a personalised sentiment. Using the same technique as the bottles, I used the Sue Wilson Oslo die and then added the sentiment, I added this to the card using foam pads.  I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.
