Gift cards for baby

Two more cards very similar to the previous one - another entry for Stampin' sisters in Christ 81 and Crafts 4 eternity R12 technique/theme challenge, both of which call for something that is hidden - again, the tag inside the pocket has semi-circular slits top and bottom to accommodate a store gift card.

The background paper for the baby boy card is American Crafts the goods Jack.

The background for the baby girl card is BG sugar rush.

This is also for:

Thank you gift card

There are a couple of challenges that call for something hidden:

Stampin' sisters in Christ 81 and Crafts 4 eternity R12 technique/theme challenge.

The pocket on this card houses a tag that can incorporate a store gift card - you can just see the little semi-circular cut (there is another one towards the base of the tag) to accommodate the gift card. The background paper is BG euphoria.

Yellow and white Easter

Another Easter card (I've made quite a few over the last couple of days), this time with Forever Friends spring time paper, some sticky ribbon that I've had for ages and a dove and cross stamp, coloured with copics and white sakura pen for the dove, which was then covered with stickles crystal ice. The sentiments were computer generated and printed.

Cupcake inspirations 103 gave me the idea for the colour scheme:

CHNC challenge 13: square card

This card is for my own challenge 13 on my Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge blog. My challenge this time is to make a square Christmas card - such an easy peasy challenge. If you haven't yet discovered my Christmas blog, why not hop over there and then join in - it's never too early to start making Christmas cards.

I was running out of time to get this done this week because I've been busy getting cards, including Easter ones yet to be blogged, ready for my sale today to raise money for Tearfund.

So I needed to make a quick card - I used some K & Co Secret Santa paper (I received a whole 12 x 12 pad of this from generous crafting friends at Order of the Opus Gluei). I used rub ons by Kaisercraft for the sentiments and dotted around a few gems and a couple of stars.

I like to try and regularly support other Christmas card challenge blogs, so this is also for:

Sparkle creations Christmas 2011 week 16
: recipe: 1 designer paper (OK I cheated a bit by using doubled sided paper), stars and rub ons
Bah! humbug 12: Christmas trees

It's also for:
