Wardrobe box card


This is a box card that I made using a card blank from Creata. The wardrobe inside the box was rescued from a Marks & Spencer gift card - it is 3D so it fills the 'box' part of the card - this will have to be boxed up to send because it won't go flat into an envelope. I coloured the dress and wardrobe with spectrum noir pens (they were originally an ivory shade. I've used gold mirror card embossed using the Embossalicious floral vine embossing folder run through my eBosser. The foiled sentiment panel is one I've had for some time and the flowers are Craftime.

With sympathy


Sadly having to make too many of these cards recently.

I stamped off the edge all round repeatedly with a little floral stamp that I've had since I started cardmaking - one of those that is handy again and again - inked with memento rich cocoa and I brushed the edges very lightly with distress ink, as well as doing this to the image.

They say that the camera never lies, but somehow it has made the lace look arched rather than straight, although in reality it was fine - can't take another picture because the card has gone.


This is for:

Deep ocean 77: distressing

Cardz 4 guyz 17: bingo - I chose the middle line across - distressing/image/sentiment (think this is suitable for a man to receive)

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside


Yes, that's true, but I'll have to wait a week and a half!

Simple card using some paper that was in my stash from long ago, an anchor sticker and the stamped verse, torn around and brushed with stormy sky distress ink. The verse is from a Rubadubadoo stamp set that I bought years ago.

Glory of Christmas challenge 33



For the Glory of Christmas 33 the theme is 'anything goes' as long as it's Christmas. We would love to see your Christmas creations there (and, no, it isn't too early to start making your Christmas cards - you'll be glad when it gets nearer to the end of the year).

Here is my design card - it is very similar to the one I did for yesterday's Completely Christmas 11 because I already had another of the images, Di's Digi Stamps 'Holly's Christmas tree coloured', printed and had the striped paper from Forever Friends 'Christmas tale'left over so thought I would tear and use it for this card.

The sentiment washi tape was from Tiger and the silk ribbon flower from Create and Craft.
