We wish you a merry Christmas


Another Christmas card with a sentiment as the focus - a glittered scalloped circle taken from an old kit, matted on to an offcut piece of embossed silver mirror (using the Embossalicious star of wonder embossing folder) on to a strip of red mirror, mounted on to a green card blank.

Birthday wishes


This is for Atlantic sketch 269:


The 'tag' is an ATC that I made years ago as my own one to keep for a group swap. It was made with Die cuts with a view pocket full of posies papers and various buttons, trim, ribbon. The background paper and other strip was from my offcuts box, with Hobbycraft flowers added and the birthday sentiment circle.

Happy anniversary


This card features some stickers I got from The Range with papers from Papermania Modern Deco - these are so lush, shiny and lovely - unfortunately, the camera just doesn't do them justice. On here the black looks grey, but is a much deeper black irl.

Birthday card for husband


This is a commissioned card for a friend's husband's birthday - someone who loves music and plays guitar.

I used papers from my offcuts box including the silhouette which was one on a sheet of similar silhouettes, but don't know where it came from, adding the greeting and 'husband'.

Happy birthday card for a guitarist


This was a commissioned card for a son's 60th birthday - he is a keen guitarist, both classical and electric guitar, so I used digital images of both layered on top of the silhouette, added to the the sheet music. This was printed, layered on to mirror card and on to the Kanban sentiment background card with wooden corner pieces added.
