Cards, cards, cards

I went to a craft class today. We made cards and this is one of them. We used these little flowery things (they are at the bottom of the congratulations) We mounted the second floral part with foam pads - they make it stand up.

I preffered this card to the first one.
We stamped the dandelion clock image then heat embossed it to make it shiny. It doesn't show very well in the picture but it is mounted on silver mirrored card.The writing says 'For Somone Special' and I gave it to my Dad.

This last card I made last night using the fabby tutorial here. It's called a tri-fold card. I don't have the stamps that they used in the tutorial so I used some of my Tracy Beaker stash. I thought it would be really hard but it is really simple. I got my Mum to do all the cutting as I don't like using her craft knife especially when my little sister is running around :P But I did all the folding and everything else. I made it for my Mums friend who we went to the card class with today because she gave me loads of clothes (yay!)

All the pictures are clickable if you want them bigger to see them better. The ladybirds, spotty ribbons and square chipboard shapes weren't from the TB set they were from my stash.

Hope you like them :)


  1. I think you have a knack with cards ... maybe you can make cards for your Mum ... when she needs to send one ... as she says she doesnt enjoy making them so much.

  2. That's amazing!!! You've done a brilliant job Devon!!
