Commissioned Golden Wedding Anniversary card

I was asked to make a Golden Wedding Anniversary card using the photo of the couple's wedding. I printed this out on to a shaped die cut and then mounted this on to a gold mirror card matching shape.

The background sentiment panel is vellum and the gold mirror card top and bottom are embossed strips run through the cuttlebug with an embossing border folder.

The flowers are Craftime and the other bits and pieces are from stash. This is an A5 card.

Suzie's 365 photos day 140: interior

It's seems incredible that we're already up to day 140 on Suzie's 365 photos and today Suzie is asking us to show something for 'interior'.

I'm showing a peek into one of my wardrobes - you will notice that even the bedroom doesn't escape housing my craft stuff - the RUB box you can just see at the top houses some finished cards (and there's lots more boxes on the shelves above).


CHNC challenge 73 - another blue card

The second card for my CHNC challenge 73 uses some of the Patchwork Pals background card together with supplies that came in kits ages ago together with a silver sentiment and snowflakes punched with silver mirror card - Woodware punch - sorry they look black here - they really are silver):

CHNC challenge 73: a touch of the blues

It's time once again for a new challenge over on my Christmas blog, so please go and have a look at CHNC challenge 73 - I'd love you to join in the fun and avoid the panic later in the year by getting some Christmas cards made.

The background is made from some card from a Patchwork Pals Christmas kit that I bought three years ago, perhaps more - and I've still got quite a lot of it left, so I thought it was about time I used some.

The stocking is chipboard from Poundland (a couple of Christmases ago), the baubles with snowflakes are stickers that have been in my Christmas box for ages and the lovely sheer ribbon with glittery blue and silver trees was bought from a market stall.


I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Holly jolly Christmas challenge: Christmas stocking
Sparkles forum Christmas challenge 16: Christmas tree
Christmas crafting 11: twas the night before Christmas
Festive Friday 19 product challenge: glitter or glimmer
Mema's crafts May: bingo challenge - I chose blue, ribbon, bling
