Multi Layer Arched Box Frame Card

Now I know that  I have folded the front edge on the left hand side over on the front and it should've been behind (you should've heard the cursing!) but after using DST there is no going back!

The other thing  is is that the middle pieces fit into a side piece through slots.  I don't know if I have done it wrong but it was only after I was taking a photo that I noticed that the middle pieces  don't fit low enough so where you should be able to see straight through the cut outs on the side, you can't on mine because it's all higgledy piggledy.

All in all, with the inking of the inner edges that went a bit awry, it's a bit of a dogs dinner!  I did put a note on to my friend apologising as she always sends me beautiful handmade cards.  Lol.

The cabinet die is from China (perhaps that explains it).  The die on the top is Sue Wilson  Daisy Cluster.   The foliage die is the Sue Wilson Blossoming Branch die and the flowers were made from  good old fashioned punches.  The  Happy Birthday is a Sue Wilson Mini Expressions die.

Tattered Lace Peach Sorbet Picture Perfect Circle Christmas Cards

The main body of the card is cut using the Picture Perfect Circle and is self supporting on a stand.  I say self supporting but I found that it is only self supporting with something behind it;  like a brick wall!

The Poinsettia is the Sizzix Bigz Die Tattered Poinsettia by Tim Holtz and the From Our House to Yours is by Sue Wilson.

The centre is by Amy Designs and is called Ice Crystal Frame.   The rest are unbranded from China.

I really enjoyed making the first two but then the other eight became rather tedious. Lol.

Well I have finally got a laptop after my last one started limping and then after several attempts at patching up, it finally died. After choosing another out of the thousands that are available these days, it turned out to be faulty! 

Anyway, this is a card I made using Tattered Lace Floating in the Air Circle, Sue Wilson Maggie die and matching stamp and the tags are unbranded from China.

Memory Box Poinsettia Ribbon Christmas Cards

Made using Memory Box Poinsettia Ribbon die and a Merry Christmas unbranded die from China.

Girly Birthday Card

I'm not one for using patterned papers as I really struggle with the layout but I've recently found templates online and liked this one.

I'm not happy with the Happy Birthday topper but as usual I'd left it until the last minute and didn't have time to redo it. As you can see from the photo below, it looks like a tornado has been through just trying to get it this far!
