Another card for a cat lover

Another card for a cat lover made this morning using a silver cat on to which I put some gems around his or her neck, stickers  from Jolee added, the Dovecraft Birthday label and the cat with the glitter surround from The Works.


Just to show that the Birthday sentiment is really silver foiled:

Card for a cat lover

A birthday card for a cat lover using paper from PDA card and crafts, Dovecraft Birthday label, stickers from Jolee and the cat up in the corner from a selection from the Works. (They say the camera never lies, but the Birthday label isn't really crooked!)

Horses and dogs

This is a commissioned card made today for a friend to send to someone who loves horses and dogs for her 70th birthday.

I used a piece of Hunkydory spotted card to make the A5 card blank. The papers were from PDA card and craft (long ago - bought lots and love using them). I printed the greeting only to a piece of Hunkydory card, shades of beige, quickly pouring on gold detail embossing powder and heating before die cutting and embossing using a todo label die, with the next size up to put behind it.

I added two bands of white with black and gold spots, the Jolee felt dog and glittered paw prints and the little dog's head.


I stamped the greeting inked with versafine black onyx and embossed with detail gold for the inside of the card, die cutting and embossing with a larger todo label die, matting this on to the insert. It's a shame that the photo doesn't show how golden it is irl.

Get well soon

For this card I cut the Kanban topper into three to give a little bit more interest, mounting on to the dark green card and then on to the pink card blank, wrapped with pink grosgrain ribbon and topper with the lovely sparking gems and the Get well soon sentiment.

A card that could be sent for a variety of occasions or just to say hello - this was an Anita's topper which I matted on to the dark green handmade paper that is woven, then on to the pink before matting on to the card blank.

Another hallowe'en birthday

As I said in the previous post I don't 'do' hallowe'en, but I occasionally get asked to make a card to do with that holiday and this was commissioned for a grandson - yes, the twin of the granddaugher whose card was shown before this. The background was created with an embossing folder brushed with ink. The skulls came from Poundland and other bits and pieces are from sticker sheets I bought from Amazon.

Hallowe'en birthday

I don't 'do' hallowe'en, but I occasionally get asked to make a card to do with that holiday and this was commissioned for a granddaughter whose birthday is hallowe'en (she is a twin, so watch this space for another card). The background paper is Paper Boutique wickedly wonderful pack. The middle piece is a choker, bought last year in Poundland and here wrapped around a piece of card so that it can be taken off to be worn. The other bits and pieces are from sticker sheets I bought from Amazon.

The fab four

For this commissioned card made some time ago I was asked to include the Beatles and a postcard picture of somewhere on the Costa del Sol. The background paper was from Kanban, with an offcut band of paper between two pieces of washi tape.

Happy birthday again and again

These are five cards that were made a while ago using various cardstock offcuts, card blanks and the die cut toppers and other bits and pieces ... I'd had them for so long that I can't remember where they came from.
