Just Because

This little gift bag was made using a sheet of Moorish paper (8" by 8") and my Hougie Board.  I finished it off with a die cut flower, Candi and a sentiment from the It's a Wrap Sentiments kit by Craftwork Cards.

The second picture shows the bag when open.  To keep it closed I used two small circles of velcro.

On your Special Day

A very simple but effective card made with a panel of Moorish paper, a Moroccan Message Band, a double flower and Candi.

I love the combination of the pale green against the white.

You're the Pick of the Bunch

I used a panel of glittery Secret Garden paper and added three flowers made using pastel daisies from the latest Craftwork Cards Flower Store.  The second picture gives a close up of one of the flowers.

Thinking of You

This was made using Shabby Vintage paper from Craftwork Cards.  The daisies came from the latest Flower Store, also from Craftwork Cards.  The double daisy was made by scoring the centre of the petals on both flowers and folding them all up.  I then stuck one flower on top of the other and added a piece of Candi to the centre.

Just a Note

I used the Moorish Collection from Craftwork Cards for this card along with two daisies from their new Retro Flower Store.  The sentiment is from the It's a Wrap Sentiments kit which was recently featured on QVC.

Just for You

I made this little gift bag using my Hougie Board and decorated it with elements from the Moorish Collection by Craftwork Cards.  The daisies are from the Retro Flower Store also by Craftwork Cards.

Happy Birthday

Another Kraft with Colour card made with a DL blank.  I added a punched circle to the centre of the pinwheel flower along with a small die cut flower and a piece of Candi.

I love the colour combination of the sentiment and kraft paper.

Happy Valentine's Day

Here's a Valentine's card that I made using an 8 by 8 blank.  I embossed the heart with a script embossing folder and then painted it with red acrylic paint.   It is attached to the card using foam pads to add dimension.

I'm not sure why, but the scan isn't very good - I cleaned the bed of the scanner but it's still not brilliant.

On your Birthday

I used two daisies from the new Retro Flower Store by Craftwork Cards and scored each petal down the centre before gluing one to the top of the other and adding a piece of Candi to the centre.  I then added a message band and sentiment and attached the flower over the top of the band.

Special Day

This was made with the new Moorish collection from Craftwork Cards.  Although you can't tell from the scan, I cut a panel from the front of the card and the spotty paper is actually on the inside of the card blank.

The sentiment is a Moorish message and these are made up of two pieces so you can mix and match.  A word of warning though, the top and the bottom of the outside piece are different and if you stick it on the wrong way, the centre piece with the message on won't fit.  Ask me how I know!

Thank You

Another very quick card using an Elegance card blank.  The daisies are from the new Retro Flower Store by Craftwork Cards and the message band is from the It's a Wrap Sentiments also from Craftwork Cards.  I curled the petals to add some dimension to the card.

Happy Birthday - 46

I've made this for a friend whose birthday is today.  The card is an 8 by 8 blank and the papers are from Daisy Bucket.

I embossed the chipboard 4 and 6 with a Cuttlebug embossing folder that has numbers on it and then painted them using a Tim Holtz dabber in Pool. The second image shows the inside of the card.

Happy Birthday Gary, hope you have a lovely day xx
