Three Birthday Cards

Three cards made this month.



For the first one I hot foiled and cut out, the flowers and leaves with the TODO Daisy Die Template Set on a TODO.

I cut an aperture on one side of a piece of folded gold card with a die and cut a piece of cream card to fit behind it.

I drew the stems on the cream card with a gel pen, attached the leaves and flowers, then finished off with a ‘Best Wishes’ peel-off and some chunky glitter to the flower centres.


As you can see the following two were similar, and were both made in the same way.

I designed and cut each letter piece (see examples below) on the scan’n’cut, folded and attached each one to a piece of white folded card then added a picture to the right hand side.

The bird in the cage card was made with various patterned papers and the picture was a topper from my stash.

The phoenix card was made from plain card, embossed, hot foiled and decorated with self-adhesive pearls, while the phoenix itself was heat embossed


Letter piece patterns.




Christmas Card

Another quick and easy card I made this year is this one…


This card was heat embossed on parchment paper, with some peel-offs, glitter and pearls.

Using a clear embossing pen trace the pattern onto a piece of parchment. Cover with white embossing powder, turn the parchment over and tap the back to remove the excess powder.
Using a heat gun, apply the heat to the back of the parchment, directly below one area of powder until it changes then move your heat gun to the next area and so on, until all the powder has changed.
Cut around the edge of the pattern.

Cut a square of white paper the same size as the centre square of the parchment pattern and stick it onto the centre of a square of shiny card.
Stick the parchment onto the card, making sure the white square lines up with the pattern, then stick the whole thing onto a piece of folded white card.

Add a peel-off greeting, a star to the top of the tree and some presents, adding some glitter to the ribbon areas (if needed).
Stick some flat backed pearls on the tree and a larger pearl in each corner.
