Santa's Sleigh Christmas Z-fold Card

So Christmas is a little over ten weeks away, so it is definitely time for me to start sharing some Christmas cards, like the amazing one below.

I got my inspiration from Chloe Evans' card that she made a little while back, which is absolutely stunning, so I knew I had to case it. I did make a few subtle changes to the sled and presents and I also added a sentiment to finish the card off.

I had a lot of fun making this card, but it did take quite some time to complete.

Fox Builder Baby Card

I have another card that showcases the versatility of the "Fox Builder Punch" that I wanted to share. I cased the card from Valerie Moody who cased the bear from Nicole Kunzig.

As soon as I saw the cute little bear, I knew I had to make some cute baby cards with it. I did alter my bear by giving him 2 more paws/arms, as I felt this was missing and made the bear complete.

A Nice Cuppa Card

Is there someone in your life who loves a cuppa, then this is the perfect card for them. You can change the sentiment to suit a tea or a coffee drinker.

I love how simple and clean this card looks and it's super quick and easy to make.

Masculine Fishing Card

Father's day is just around the corner, so I wanted to share a cascade card that I made a couple of years ago, using the "By the Tide" stamp set which is now retired. You can find my cascade card instructions here, please ensure you scroll down to the bottom of the page.

I made the fishing rods by hand, using a long strip of card stock and several circle punches which I used for the reel and to thread the bakers twine through so that it would resemble fishing line.

I did plenty of fussing cutting for the fish and sea horses, which took a bit of time, but made the end result well worth it.

Detailed Floral Thinlits Card

The Stampin Up detailed floral thinlits makes a perfect wedding or engagement card. Bellow are a couple of versions on how to use the dies differently. I prefer to use rich colours, like night of navy or fresh fig against white, as it really make the detail in the flowers stand out.

Gold Foil Mother's Day Card

I have been playing around with some foiling techniques that I discovered from Jennifer McGuire's Blog, she explains in detail what you'll need and also has a video to show how it is done.

Basically you'll need a laser printer (the toner is what makes this whole process work), artwork to print, foil sheets and a laminator. I highly recommend watching the video Jennifer has done, so you can see how easy it is to make simple foil cards.

I designed the artwork below on my computer just by using different styled fonts and font sizes until I was happy with the design. I printed it out on my laser printer so that the words were solid black, then added a gold foil sheet on top of the artwork, placed it in between a folded sheet of A4 paper and ran it through a laminator. Magically the foil adheres to the toner, leaving you with a stunning card. I added a few red hearts and voila......card done!
