On Your Birthday

I used one of the Pretty Little Prints papers from Craftwork Cards as the background on this card.  The embossed white card, the mssage band and the sentiment, along with the paper were all part of the kit of the month.  The daisy is from the Retro Flower Store.

Daisy Squares

I cut some daisies from the Summer Afternoon papers and mounted them on squares of white embossed card.  Inside the card there is an oval sentiment on a scalloped oval of the paler paper which says 'On Your Birthday'.

Happy Birthday

More Teresa Collins Summer Afternoon papers. I covered the card with the striped paper and added a panel using the reverse side.

The flower was created using two daisies from the Retro Flower Store by Craftwork Cards. I scored each petal down the centre, folded them on the score lines and stuck them together.

Finishing touches were Candi and a rub on sentiment.

I used panels of Pretty Little Prints on this card and added three daisies cut from the white embossed card. I also added Candi and a birthday sentiment.

With Love

I've used Teresa Collins papers on this card along with cream daisies from the Retro Flower Store by Craftwork Cards.

The pink and cream colour combination works really well together.

Pretty Little Daisies

A very simple card - I cut three daisies from white embossed card, mounted them onto the panel of Pretty Little Prints paper and added Candi to their centres and petals.

Pretty Little Prints

Craftwork Cards have just released a new collection called Pretty Little Prints. This card is made using one of the papers with an embossed Fanciful frame. I added three daisies from the Retro Flower Store with some of the new Candi in their centres.

I finished the card off using a scalloped circle punched from card matching the daisies and layering this with a birthday sentiment.

With Love

I used some Teresa Collins Summer Afternoon papers for this card. The delicate colours are gorgeous.

To give dimension to the flowers I scored down the centre of each petal and folded on the score line, then stuck two together.

Today's card features Alfie from Craftwork Cards. You can buy rubber stamps of Alfie but I am not too good at colouring in so I cheated and bought a pack of pre-coloured images.

I covered the card blank with one of the Teresa Collins Summer Afternoon papers and added a second panel using the reverse of the paper. After sticking Alfie onto the card I finished it off with a sentiment and Candi.

Warren's Growing Carrots

Here's Warren again and today he is planting carrots. I chose the background paper to tie in with the carrots and used orange Candi too.

The image is layered onto a cream scalloped circle which matches the flowers on the background paper.

Embossed Frame

I made this card using an embossed frame by Craftwork Cards which was featured on QVC yesterday.  The flower was cut from Moorish papers using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.  I fastened the four flowers together with a brad and attached the flower to the card with foam pads.  Finally I punched a scalloped circle from toning card and layered it with a sentiment before sticking it to the corner of the card.

The embossed frames are really lovely and they come in a pad along with 8" by 8" sheets of white card.  They are great for colouring with distress inks or chalks or look equally as good when used just as they are.

Union Flags

Here is a gift bag that I made using the same paper as in my previous post.  The picture below shows the side view (complete with chocolate inside!).

I took this with me to Craftwork Cards as a gift for Sue when I went over to Leeds a couple of weeks ago for the Diamond Jubilee event.
