Love to craft July challenge mid-month inspiration


This is my design card for Love to craft challenge 12 July: anything goes - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the Crafty Girls team who published mid-month inspiration and also here to see the crafting of team A and to enter our challenge.#

I'm sharing a commissioned card that I made in May for a grandson of a friend. The background sentiment card is from Kanban. I found the circle image on the internet (it was free) and I cut it out on my Scan n cut. The computer generated sentiment and the surrounding gold mirror card were cut and embossed on the todo with two cross hatch dies.

A simple card using Downton Abbey (Crafter's Companion) papers, a piece of laced ribbon, a vintage picture from a collection from The Works, with the bottom corners added. With the addition of the sentiment circle and the crocheted flowers, the card was completed (I didn't make the flowers ... they were bought from The Works).

Caroling penguins for CHNC


This is my card for mid-month inspiration for CHNC extra July 2017 - please click on the link to see the lovely designs of my team members and we hope you will join in the challenge here - anything goes as long as it's Christmas and you can enter as many times as you like.

The background was created by embossing a piece of mirror card using an Embossalicious folder and sanding to reveal some white core. The image is one of my favourite Penny Black Christmas stamps, caroling penguins, inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum nor with quickie glue pen and Art Institute fine glitter on the furry bits of the Santa hats. This was die cut using an X cut rectangular parenthesis die. The greeting glittered circle was part of a kit bought ages ago.

I'm also sharing this card for my CHNC challenge 342 where it's anything goes as long as it's Christmas with the optional theme of 'use a die cut'. Please click on the link and join in as many times as you like ... and, remember, the theme is entirely optional.
