CHNC challenge 421


This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 421 -  please click on the link to find out what it's all about and I hope you'll be able to join in with your Christmas designs - anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of 'use a sentiment'.

My card is simply made with a piece of card cut from a card blank from The Works, mounted on to an offcut of card and then on to a blank card blank. The sentiment panel was cut  from a tag and I added the felt gingerbread man from Hobbycraft and the shaker dome with stars from Poundland.

This was a comissioned card, featuring lots of penguins - the line of them across the bottom was cut from some Hunkydory card and the various chipboard pieces and snowglobe domes were from Hobbycraft with the greeting to Charlotte generated on my dymo letratag using clear tape which was then stuck on to a small piece of Hunkydory card. The snowflake background was from a paper pad from The Works. The white scalloped card blank was a side opening A5.

Happy new year


This is a commissioned card - I was asked to design a new year card with hippos on it - I found a free online clipart, printed and fussy cut round the hippos.

Golden wedding card


Do you want to be a part of Hunkydory's 2019 DT? Click here to see what it's all about and apply if you think it's appropriate for you.

This is a commissioned golden wedding card. The picture with bells is on acetate wrapped around the piece of pearlescent gold card, then mounted on to the gold foiled sentiment card, adding the gold mirror label with letratag tape sentiments printed and with the gold foiled 50 and the lace heart with pearl from The Works.

It's a poor photo because the only other alternative was one with flash reflection on the gold mirror label.

This is a commissioned card - I was asked to make a 40th birthday card for a taxi driver, so I used my long-treasured sizzed big car die to cut the taxi using black shiny card, using acetate for the windscreen and my dymo letratag to print the registration number.

This is a commissioned card, using background paper from Craftwork cards Christmas past and the tree is upcycled from an old card.
