shaped cards..

IMG_0331 (Medium)IMG_0332 (Medium)Every now and again I pull out an older paper range, in this case Kaisercraft Curiosity and do something a little different with it, or team it with new stamps and inks. For this group of cards I made shaped cards. I have done a you tube clip for the box card shape – I fiddled with the measurements so that it will fit in a standard envelope for posting. The link to the clip is on the right hand side of my blog. I think I have done one for the stepper card as well… must check,if not I will get on to that! For the decorating, all was done with just the papers with a bit of fussy cutting and a couple of the matching collectables.A day off today, but a very busy morning, looking forward to a couple of hours relaxing in the craft room! til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft card in a box Cherry Blossom cards

IMG_7741 (Medium)Here are 3 box cards I made for my stall at the fair. I used Kaisercraft Cherry Blossom papers from the 6″ pad and the matching collectables. I added some die cut flourishes ( kaisercraft die) and butterrflies 9 memory box die), leaves punched with martha stewart punch and a bit of bling and sequins. I have spent a little time in the craft room this weekend, trying to get to grips with the cas style of card making. Cas is clean and simple..lots of white space, and minimal embellishment. I have decided this style is not for me! I can do it, I just don’ t stop when I should, and before I know it I have maximum embellishment and my white space has a strategically placed ribbon, sequin or other sort of embellishment that would be frowned upon in CAS circles. I will persevere as I like a challenge! til tomorrow….
