Making Cards paper challenge


I decided to challenge myself on Monday afternoon to make a batch of cards using the papers, toppers and sentiments that came with the latest edition of Making Cards. It was so much faster using one set of papers and I was very pleased to make 8 that afternoon. They are all varied as I added various embellishments.


This one is my favourite, well it is a snowman and I love the colour combination. I simply added some Stickles and Joy die cut snowflakes from white glitter card.


I love the chalkboard effect of the sentiments. I shall be looking out for some of these to buy at the NEC. For this one I added half a doily and some Marianne diecut and embossed poinsettias with pearls.

I still have a lot of materials left to make another batch. A great way to build up my stock.

Looking forward to a visit to the garden centre with friends this morning. We will be stopping for coffee and buying some more bulbs for Spring colour in the garden.
