Radley wedding card

One of my friends loves Radley bags so for her wedding I made them a Radley dog themed card.

I found some wide lace ribbon to use as a 'wedding dress' and some thin lace ribbon as a dog collar.

The suit is made out of paper with some purple ribbon used as a 'tie'. The dogs are attached to the card with foam pads so they stick out above the heart.

Don't they look cute!

Dotty leaving card/scrapbook

One of my friends recently left to go back to Canada after spending 6 months in England. Instead of doing a normal style leaving card I decided to create a concentina card that had 8 sides so I could include more pictures on it.

There was a dotty theme to her leaving present so I continued this on the card. I found some lovely dotty wrapping paper in Oliver Bonas (they do it in red, blue and pink!) to create a union jack front cover.

5 sides of the card then had pictures of things she did while she was here.

All the words  were stamped with my alphabet revolving stamper.

I ended the card with a cd of all the photos from her time in England. I made a cd pocket to attach to the card and covered this in more of the dotty paper.

Something she can keep forever to remind her of her English adventure!

New Home Card

My sister and her husband have just bought a house so I made her a new home card using the house advertisement section of the newspaper. I managed to find one just advertising the sold houses which I thought was quite appropriate.

The key is made out of cardboard and painted with metallic paint. The letters were made with some alphabet rubber stamp sets that I bought a few weeks ago. They were so cheap I ended up buying 5 sets in different fonts!

All the letters and the key were attached to the card with foam pads to make them stand out against the background.
