With Love on Your Birthday

This card is straight in real life - the photo has come out a little distorted!

The ribbon is ruched onto strong double sided tape and I scored the petals of the large die cut flower down the centres and folded them up - this gives the flower extra dimension.

On your Birthday

A very simple card using a kraft square blank.  I added a panel of Kraft Fusion paper, a die cut flower with a message on a punched circle and finished off with three pieces of Candi.

Happy Birthday

This is a simple but striking card made with an Elegant Square Easel blank.  I also used Kraft Fusion paper, Foil Fusion paper, die cut flowers, a message mat and message, and, of course, Candi!

A DL blank with Foil Fusion and Kraft Fusion pinwheel flowers on a Foil Fusion panel.  The top and bottom pinwheels were finished off with punched circles and messages, and the centre one with a punched circle a die cut flower and a piece of Candi.

Birthday Wishes

Today's card is made with a DL blank and three pinwheel flowers.  I attached a punched circle to each pinwheel and then added flowers and Candi to the two outside ones and a sentiment to the centre one.

I've made this for Deb whose birthday is today - fingers crossed it arrives on time.  Happy Birthday Deb, hope you have a lovely day xx

Best Wishes

This time I used a cream card blank and cut away a panel from the front of it.  The chevron paper is attached inside the back of the card and the sentiment overhangs the edge when the card is open.

Best Wishes

Kraft with Colour again and this time I tried something different for the stem of the flower.  I stuck down a strip of strong double sided tape and ruched the ribbon onto the top of it.  The leaf is hand cut and I used a fineliner pen to add the veins.

Have a Wonderful Day

I scrunched the panel of Kraft paper and rubbed a Bundled Sage ink pad over the top of it before sticking to the card.  The flower and message mat plus message are attached using foam pads.

The leaf was cut by hand and I used a fineliner pen to add the veins onto it.

Birthday Wishes

Something a little different today, but still using the Kraft with Colour collection.  This card is made from the message mats - the part circles are glued flat whereas the full ones are attached with foam pads. 

I love the colour combination of the mats and die cut flowers.

Birthday Wishes

For this card I used a panel of Kraft paper down the centre of the blank - I think that this is my favourite design in the Kraft paper pack.  I cut a large pink flower down the centre and attached one piece to each edge of the panel and then added small darker pink flower to the centre of each piece.  In between the two flower halves I added a medium sized flower (attached with foam pads) with Candi in the centre.

To finish off the card I used a panel of gold foiled paper with a foiled sentiment mounted on a pink message mat.

On your Birthday

Made with a square blank, this is another quick card.  Both of the die cut flowers are attached with foam pads and the petals on the bottom flower are curled down whereas those on the top flower are curled up.

Have a Lovely Day

Here is another card using the Kraft with Colour collection.  I chose more earthy shades this time so the card would be suitable for a man.

Again it's very simple, two panels of Kraft paper, two of the foiled papers, two die cut messages and Candi to finish!

Kraft with Colour

The latest collection from Craftwork Cards is called Kraft with Colour.  It is made up of Kraft paper which is printed with exclusive designs, gold, sand, pink and coral papers foiled in gold and a selection of die cut flowers and shapes along with foiled messages.

Here I have covered a square card blank with the Kraft paper and added two die cut flowers, a die cut circle and message, some of the foiled paper and then finished off with Candi.
