Here's a really special card I made for my Brother, John, who loves donkeys! I got this stamp from a well known auction site as it was perfect for him! The style of card is a 'box style' one and I've not made one before but it was fairly easy once you have the CS scored. As it's Christmas it has lots of embellies on it of course, and also after the photo was taken I added some glitter to the holly leaves as well.
Another special card, this time for my Auntie Rita - as you can tell from the photo!! I made the circular sentiment myself on the PC and then used my die cuts to make the shapes around it. Again, I've never made a "casecade card" before, this is my first attempt and it turned out better than I hoped it would! The images on it are a freebie from a Craft Magazine, and the embossing is the one and only Christmas one I have. It worked out really well and I made the reverse part of the card into one that opens out like a normal card so I could put a lovely verse in it.
The next time I do these, it will be back to normal cards instead of Christmas. Why does it go so fast??
I've been a crafter all my life, having put my hands to many different aspects of crafting, now it is time to share my cardmaking skills with you. I make cards for cancer charities and local hospices, it has affected many people I know, myself included, so I know how much it helps cancer patients. I hope you like my cards and please leave comments for me if you wish as I'd love to know what you think!
