CHNC challenge 553

This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 553 -  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  'include a reindeer'.

I used a DL side opening card, covering with an offcut of Hunkydory6 card with a piece of trim down the left hand side. I coloured the wooden reindeer with an alcohol pen which I also used on the Kanban sentiment oval, adding a red gem on one of the reindeer and a piece of washi tape across the bottom.

CHNC challenge 552

This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 552 -  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 some twine or ribbon'.

For my card I used a DL tent opening card blank on to which I adhered some red mirror card. I embossed a piece of green adorable scoreable from Hunkydory using the lovely holly and berries slimline die from Lisa Horton, using some silver gems that I coloured red with an alcohol marker for the berries, having wrapped some twine around and added the sentiment from one of Lisa Horton's festive word sheets.

Wedding day

A while ago I was asked to make a wedding day card for a daughter getting married. I was given the link to the booked venue and used a photo from there, digitally changing the middle a bit - in the end the venue had to be changed because of Covid, but I was told that it was similar and so the card was still appropriate. I downloaded the free hearts image from here, adding it digitially and then printed out and adding with foam to give a bit of dimension. The names and date etc were added digitally before printing out and adding to a pink background on an 8 x 8 card blank, adding the sentiment circle from Kanban.


I made a double insert using various papers from my stash  (very difficult to show here), this one covering a striped paper with pink vellum and adding the hearts and sentiment panel:


This is the inside of the second insert:


And t he back of the other one:


And the opposite:


And another part of the insert:

All lined with the pink pin-striped paper.
