Birthday Card – Son

It is my sons birthday coming up and as always I was stuck on what to do for his birthday card.  I think male cards are always harder to make anyway.

I decided I wanted to make an easel card as I havnt made one before and it didn’t look hard to make.

I used some instructions from the ‘Whiff of Joy blogspot’ which were really good. Thanks Jacqui. xXx.

I found the card quite easy to make and the instructions easy to follow.

I hope you like it


Happy Birthday Paul

This is the card I made for my husbands birthday recently.  He is not one for showy or bright cards so I decided ot use kraft card as a base and added Basic Grey carstock stickers to the base, along with some strips of ribbon and a little bit of bling in the shape of stars.  Simple.

Hope you like it

A day without scrapping is like a day without sunshine!!


Yellow Sparkly Card

This is one in a series of cards I made one afternoon.  I just seemed to have a spate on and made about 10 cards.  Anyway, I rounded the some of the corners of the base card,glitter & holographic mirror card.

The picture is one froma sheet of images by Kanban I think.  I just kept it simple by adding a little glitter.  To finish it off  I added felt flowers and a peel off sentiment.

It’s a pretty simple card but I like it and havn’t given it to anyone yet.

Hope you like it.


Fireman Card

This is a card I made for my great-nephew for his birthday.  I love the Jolly Nation charachters as they are so much fun.

I know fireman have yellow/gold uniforms now but I coloured him in how I remember  a fireman looked like.

21st Birthday Card

This is the card I made for my sons 21st birthday.  I duplicated a design I saw in Creative Cardmaking.

I used papers that come free with a magazine although I cannot remember which one (as I seem to buy so many).  I wanted to keep it pretty simple colour-wise and boys/men don’t seem to like fussy cards.

I am quite pleased with the result and the folding and cutting to get the effect was really easy.

Hope you like it.


Birthday Card

Birthday Card for my purple loving daughter in law.

For this base I used a A4 peice of Kanban foiled swirls cardstock, then added a smaller than A5 peice of purple mirror card.  I added corner & happy birthday semtiment peel offs and stickers for the Panduro Tilda range.  To finish off I added a length of purple organza ribbon and tied it at the front in a soft knot.

I lated added ’21’ to the card using American Crafts Glitter Thickers when I remembered it was he 21st Birthday-DOH!

Hope you like it.


Mothers Day Cards

Cards made from free card kit that came with an issued of Quick Cards magazine.  This is the first time I have made a waterfall card.

It was much easier than I thought, I think it just sounds more complicated when you reed it.  Anyway I don’t think they are too bad for a first try.
