Cottage Rose number 9

IMG_0608 (Medium)IMG_0605 (Medium)back to normal blogging today, and this is the final card in my Cottage Rose (Kaisercraft) series, although I do still have some papers left so we will revisit this collection at some stage! I did a gatefold card for this one because I just thought the door was great for this style, and the bottom photo shows what is inside the card when you open the door!All 12 x 12 papers on this one, and some lovely die cut foilage¬† with a die from Kaisercraft, and a couple of Prima and Green Tara flowers. The greeting you can see inside was die cut with my kaisercraft occassions die.I have uploaded my video showing you how I make my folding box cards, the link to my youtube channel is over there in the right hand margin!Today i am busy fulfilling orders, then I have a clear desk to just create and relax before heading back to work on Monday – that two weeks went far too quickly! Til tomorrow….

Cottage Rose 8..gatefold…

IMG_0604 (Medium)IMG_0603 (Medium)Todays card is a gatefold card, inspired by the image of the door from the collectables pack from the same collection ( kaisercraft cottage rose). I used the mini foilage die from kaisercraft for the leaves, and the flowers are prima,and kaisercraft.the bottom photo is the inside of the card, and I inked all edges with tea dye distress ink. Last night I set up a facebook page under the name Helens card designs, mainly because more and more cards were finding their way onto my normal facebook page. I will still be blogging every day ( or most days) as this is the space that will have much more detailed information, and my musings, and meanderings! The facebook page will have the photos that you see here, and there may be posts that are more immediate such as whats on my craft desk today. Feel free to pop over and have a look! Til tomorrow…..
