3 Dimensional Card

Image
Another new die purchase from last year.  I am not sure what they call them so I have called it a 3 dimensional card   I was rather happy with the effect  of the finished card. I think it would be great to add a photo for a more personalised card .






Happy Australia Day

Butterfly Cards

Image
I bought this butterfly frame die last year so thought it was time to try it out .
I was really happy with the pink one but not sure about the patterned paper behind the die. Perhaps I need to experiment a little more.  




Happy Birthday Elva

Image
A very special birthday today for my friend Elva. I hope your day is really special.
The card I made for Elva is from an SVG Cuts file called RockinRollin.



Christmas Houses

Image
Even though Christmas is pretty well done and dusted for another year I really want to share these cute Christmas houses with you.  They come from Blue Edge Crafts and I had so much fun decorating them. They are only tiny about 2 1/2 ''x 3"  I added a tea light to each of them

I have also introduced a theme for each month. The theme for this month is die cuts. This is my sample card and I have used Carta Bella papers , poppy Crafts dies and unnamed tag dies . I have turned the original sketch sideways
