Crafter's Companion Challenge 6

Here's a card I made for the above challenge, thought I'd do something different and use fabric. The rose a leaves are cut out of a tapestry type fabric and enhanced with some colouring with Promarkers and glitter glue. I put masking tape on the back to stop it fraying. It makes a lovely tactile card.

Bugaboo DT Call

Here's my 3 submissions for the Bugaboo DT Call, I have only just found them and simply adore their quirky, funny images. I just know who I'm going to send Stella to, it fits the bill perfectly and will no doubt raise a laugh!

Crafter's Companion Birthday Card Competition

I thought I would share this lovely project that won me 2nd place in the Crafter's Companion Birthday Comp. Its not too complicated and gives the recipient a wonderful surprise!
Firstly prepare 6 or more envelopes in various colours (any size) and put into them a piece of card that fits snuggly and attach with a small amount of glue, seal envelopes. Cut an appeture in the centre of each one making sure that they are on different angles, I used my cuttlebug for this. At this stage you can stick an image on the bottom envelope or use it as a gift box. Next layer them up with foam pads making sure the appertures line up. Save one envelope with the card inside to use as your lid. Score it approx 5cm from the flap (this will give a hinge for the top to open) Attach lid under the top envelope, cut off excess. Address and tie with ribbon. Hope this gives some idea of what to do, the pictures might help. You can make a card to go into the bottom envelope as I have done. Hope you enjoy making this as much as I did.
