A framed Thank You Piece

OK, so you might remember this thank you card a did a while back.. Well I was asked to make a matching framed thank you gift from the star wording which appears on the card.  Had fantastic fun with this one, the first of many I hope to make :)

and so the card and gift were given to the recipient at the same time..

. Well it's really difficult to photography something with glass in or on it, and I need more practice I think - sorry for the lack of and poor photos on this one but thought you crafty people would want to see the project - used Tagxedo and Tagul and Lifestyle crafts star dies

Pastel Wedding Cards

Yes I have been awol for a long time again, sorry about that blog readers, but I have been busy with a number of wedding cards and others.
So two more to share then - pastel coloured ones using different colours and the same design.


I love this LOTV stamp and have used it again this week - I can't think of a year when I haven't used it!

Large Graduation Card

Hi everyone, a new post with a change from weddings this time. 
Very happy with the way it turned out, being that the only pre - made stuff I used was a tassel and printed card candi - all the rest is from basics, ribbon, card, die cuts, ink and embossing techniques..

So the colour scheme is a classic one for a graduation card and I loved making the mortar board using bits of die cuts, a pair of scissors and a ruler and scalpel until I was happy with the shape.
A chance to use an embossing folder which was still in its packaging - yayy!!
I partially embossed the inside of the card and yes its a large 7 and 3/4 inch card.

Some close up photographs- many attempts at getting a photograph to show the black embossed card!

The mortar board was layered using different thicknesses of foam pads and a bit of tweaking here and there.....

the little scroll was made using white card, cutting the edge roughly with scissors and tying some 3mm ribbon around it.
