I made this card quite recently for a friend. The Lettering is all cut out by hand and then mounted on foam pads. I've used the same teal spotty paper for the inside of the balloons to tie it all together. The sentiment was printed directly onto the card. I scanned in the Forever Friends bear onto the computer and then I've mirrored it and printed it off, so that I have them facing in different directions.I recently made a similar "Dad" version for Father's Day too.
This card is very much inspired by Deb's! Thank You!! Again!! I've just bought this leafy fern punch and this was my first time using it! I've seen it used on so many cards and have admired it for ages! I've made a few Diamond Anniversary cards before, but I felt the need to try something a bit different this time. I've made this a gate fold card. Under the sentiment, I've added a small piece of velcro so it can be stuck down to look flatter. The card is still able to stand when closed. I love the simplicity of the white on white, with just a small amount of matt silver card.I hope to make more like this one!
I've been really busy working on Father's Day cards over the past couple of weeks. I decided to try out my Elzybells DIY bear for the first time. I chose quite a simple layout, and I think this is my favourite layout of the moment! lots of layers! The sentiment is computer generated. The papers are Making Memories.
I've also used the same layout to come up with this golf card too. I've used my cuttlebug embossig folder to emboss the golf ball, and I've then mounted it with foam pads.
I think this pringle style paper was part of a Shabby Princess kit. I'ts great! I use it on quite a lot of my masculine cards! Especially the Golf ones! This is yet another golfing card, this time using the Cuddly Buddly Country Gents image. I've changed the colour of his trousers as they were green on the downlaoded image. Again, I've used the cuttlebug folder to create an golf ball effect behind him. The sentiment is again a computer generated one which I've cut out using my nestabilities.
This is another card I've made as a Father's Day Card. I was asked to do a snooker themed card. As I dont have any snooker related images and stamps, I decided to have a go at piecing one together! Easier said than done! It took a little while to get the first one right! So I ended up making 3 all at once so now I've got a few spares for the future! Forward Planning! It was only after I'd finished the card that I decided to make a cue to sit on top too. That was the easy part! I'm really pleased with how this turned out, so much so, that it's got a post all to itself! Lol. To make it stand out a bit more, I've simply mounted it onto a piece of black card. The sentiments are little self adhesive wooden scrabble like peices. I bought a few sets of these YEARS back when I first got into card making. Each sheet has a full alphabet of square and a full alphabet of circles too. This is in fact the first time I've ever used them! See even if you don't use things straight away, one day they will be perfect for something!
I made this card back in February for my little boy James's first birthday! This was the first idea I had for the card for him. I'd done the Thomas the Tank Engine framed picture before, so I thought I'd have a go at turning James the Engine into a card. I bought him a James T-shirt too! This card is a large A4 size card, not my usual, but this was for someone special!! I have used a colouring page i found on the internet as a template and I've printed out the face onto grey card. There are lots and lots of foam pads on this card! I've tried to give it as much dimension as possible. I'm hoping to find a nice frame to fit and will be hang this up on his bedroom wall. Thanks for looking.
Hi and Welcome to my blog! My name is Zoe, I'm 35 and I live in Hartwell, Northamptonshire. I love making cards and shopping for making cards! I have been married to Ian for 10 years, together a lot longer! We have two boys, Adam, 8 and James, 4. We also had a little girl who we lost to an incurable disease, called Sandhoff Disease, at 2 years old. She would have been 10 this year! Since having James 4 years ago my card making has more or less been on hold, but I am just about getting back into the swing of things!
