I made this card to wish a friend good luck in their new job. The letters are stickers that I have had for years! I stuck them onto randomly shaped pieces of blue card and mounted three of these on black (all card from Craftwork Cards).
The scan doesn't show this but the plain blue pieces are attached with a glue pen so are flat, but the ones with the black edge are mounted on foam pads to add dimension.
The stars and circles are punched and I used to foam pads to stick the buttons on.

This is the finished project from my post a few days ago. I was going to make up an Easy Peasy box to put these in but I used Bendicks Bittermints which are quite big and I wouldn't have been able to fit them all in.
Each mint is sandwiched between two red scalloped circles, the top on has a punched black circle in the centre and then I used foam pads to attach the Alphabits.
I made these for a friend who is a Manchester United fan, hence the colour choice.

Here is a bar of chocolate that I decorated to go with yesterday's birthday card. I wrapped a piece of Sweet Meadow paper round the bar and fastened it with double sided tape. I then added a strip of the embossed rose paper and finished off with a pinwheel flower matching the one on the birthday card.

This birthday card took me ages to make as I decoupaged all of the elements on the paper. I didn't realise how long it would take to cut all of the images out.
I used a clear glittery Gelly Roll pel to highlight parts of the images. The pinwheel flower in the centre was made using a 2.5cm wide strip of Sweet Meadow paper scored at 0.5cm intervals. I then folded this into a concertina, stuck the two ends together, pushed it into shape and stuck it to a punched circle of card (using Glossy Accents) to keep it in place. I also used Glossy Accents to attach the In Circle message.
