Todays three cards are actually cards I created for a class a few months ago, but I thought I would post them because I think they show how best to get value out of your stash and purchases. There are only 2 pieces of 12 x 12 patterned paper here, but the papers had 4 6″ x6″ designs on each so I actually had 8 choices altogether. Minature doily dies cut in half allowed me to make scalloped borders, and a little bit of scrap ribbon never goes astray! the greetings a are dies from my collection. Some pretty matting colours – again hunt through your scraps ( and remember if a layer is covered with another layer who is going to know if you have die cut something out of the middle of it?) All my greetings could have been die cut out of the lower mats but you will never know! I loved the simplicity of these cards, thoroughly enjoyed working with this paper. Now i am off to work on some June lessons, til tomorrow…..
Here are todays cards, still with Pion Days Gone By collection,beautiful soft colours in this range, and I have just added some lace and ribbon with a little fancy die cut borders . These cards didn’t need anything else, they have a lovely vintage feel about them! Its very warm here just now, I have been lazily playing in the craft room, but also enjoying the season and spending most of my free time with family. I have worked a few days in between and we have been busy putting out all our new ranges.. some gorgeous papers coming through from Mintay , Photoplay and Prima – so lots of ideas buzzing around in my head! Meantime, til tomorrow…..
Todays cards are made with Pion Designs papers, and I have done a different kind of card base…I guess you could call it a triple fold step down?I have used a 12 x 12 cardstock base, and scored it every 10 cm.( the height is 15 cm for the back panel, and stepped down on the other two panels). The front panel is an extra piece of cardstock, and I cut it with a tab which is attached to the front 10 cm panel and that is all hidden with papers. I have shown you two views of the top card so that you can see what I am talking about! I am officially all organised for the Christmas break, I hope you all have a safe and happy holidays and I will see you all after the festivities!
