CHRISTMAS CARDS ALL YEAR ROUND NOVEMBER CHALLENGE - No patterned paper

Hi everyone

Today sees the half way mark for the Challenge at CCAYR, which is entitled 'No Patterned Papers.  Well that says only one thing to me, and that is embossing.  So this time I opted to make a shaped card using my Go Kreate dies.  This is actually a one single sheet card with a small easel at the back.  I was not happy with how it was standing (or not standing! lol) so I made a little multifold easel which I popped inside the card fixing both front and back to it.  It has now worked a treat!

TO DO THIS:

I cut a piece of card just a little narrower than the width of the card with plenty of length.  I then scored at half inches several times, then folded some mountain and valley folds and snipped the extra length off.  It then has been stuck inside the two layers.

FUSSY & FANCY FRIDAY CHALLENGE - Thankful

Hi everyone,

I am delighted to be back with a Design Team card to share which I made for the Challenge at  Fussy and Fancy     

The  theme is entitled  'Thankful'. and we are sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs

I really was quite stuck with this one. I toyed with doing this and that, but really wanted to do something without a sentiment on it.  In Uk we have Harvest Festivals and so I based my card around this which made me think of Autumn, produce, countryside etc.


I know, just humour me! Haha - hey look I was stuck! so this is what I came up with.



The pattern has been carried to the inside where there are two pockets.





These gorgeous papers and the image are from LOTV
Flowers, Rosette Ribbon, Frantage and shabby ribbon are also from Live and Love Crafts
Cheery Lynn Doiley dies

I do hope you have time to pop over and take a look at the very talented Design Team's work on the Fussy and Fancy  blog.  It is a fabulous Challenge, it would be great if you could join in.

As always, thanks for looking, and have a great day!

VINTAGE CHRISTMAS 2013 TAG CARD

Morning all,

I made this Tag shaped card for last Christmas for a very special friend of mine so my memory of the materials used is a little sketchy, but I think I have got it right.  If my memory serves me well (and that will be a first! haha) I believe the papers, Vintage Father Christmas image and roses all came from Live and Love Crafts.  The lace at the foot came from Ribbon Girl and everything else from stash.

Firstly I started with a hand cut card blank with fold, and then I made a template of the tag, placed that on the front of the card and cut around it, obviously omitting the side with the fold.  It was a lot easier than I thought it would be so I made a whole load of this shape last Winter, and have made quite a few more this year too.

SHABBY VINTAGE

Morning all,

This was such a quick and easy card to make and another one I had clean forgotten about.
The card blank was from a pack purchased from Hobby House.  These are so useful and there are several different designs to choose from.  Brilliant for a quick card.

The die-cut is from Marianne Creatables (Anja) and everything else came from my stash.

 

Thank you so much for looking.  

Have a lovely day,

VINTAGE SHABBY

Morning all,
How about another week of Vintage Shabby?  I keep thinking I am up to date and then finding more photos of cards I have made to share.

Here |I have an easel card with a twist and that is just what it is called, a Twisted Easel Card.  I love making this shaped card, and once I worked out the twist on it, which was quite some time ago now, there was no stopping me.

HOBBY HOUSE TOPPER - Sylvia Zet

Morning all,
This has to be one of my favourite Christmas images!   T

 Again I opted to use a pre-coloured Hobby House Topper.  The image was created by Sylvia Zet for Wee Stamps.

So -continuing my phase of Easel cards using the large Spellbinders Nestabilities and Go Kreate dies and other dies which I have recently dug out for use I had such fun making this and took quite a bit of time on it.  

Unfortunately the photo does not pick up the glitter.  There is lots of sparkle which does not show.  It is such a shame, and to be honest I am quite disappointed because the photos really to not do justice to these cards at all.  Any idea what I can do?
