60th Birthday Card

My daughter asked me to make cards for her friend who is turning 60 shortly. I wanted to make something a little different so I dangled the 60 from some acetate to give the card a bit of dimension. This same friend is also moving to another place of work so I made the 'Missing you already' card. I just love these Penny Black rubber stamps they are so cute.

Skateboard Challenge!

I was asked by my daughter to make a card for her friends son who is a keen skateboarder. This was a challenge as I had nothing in my stash that resembled a skateboard. The card is for a young man who is very arty. So out came paper & pencil to sketch templates for a board. This is what I came up with so here is hoping they like it!

Tartan Christmas

It doesn't feel like a year ago I was preparing to send Christmas cards overseas but here we are again. I am a little earlier this year due to us going on holiday in 2 weeks time. By the time we return home the first posting date will be due. I made a change this year by incorporating some tatran into my designs. Family abroad often like to see a little of roots at this time of year.

Pop Out Christmas

I liked the article in Cardmaking & Papercraft mag in July showing pop out floral cards. So Ithought I would have a go with snowflakes. This is the result. It is a little different so please leave comments and tell me what you think. I used Papermania blue Christmas papers and Sizzlets snowflake on the front. Various punches were used on the inside and a Penny Black sentiment.
