Teddy Bear

I have tried lots of cards and this was really fun.

It looks like a Bear and is easy to make.

All I used was card, paper, foam and peel offs

I made it for my friend and used alphabet peel off's to personalise the card.

I'm 12 and I can make it, so you can too.

Instructions are on Christinas website .

There are many cards for visitors to try in the Novelty Cards section and they are all easy to make.

If they turn out as good as yours Kajal I will be really happy.

All that is needed are some bought, punched or die cut shapes ...and away you go.

It is fun to come up with these different creatures, and there is nothing to stop you having a pink or blue bear if that is what you want.

And if you tried Paper Piecing yours could be spotted or flowery or what ever you fancied.

You will find the page on paper peicing in the Techniques section in the NavBar to your left.

Have fun and happy crafting.

Diamond Top Card

Diamond Top Card
Since I hava a lot of spare time I thought I'd try something new.

So I tried card-making and this website has been perfect for a beginner like me.

But even when you have have perfected the technique, there's still so many challenging ideas.

Here's one of my favourite using the diamond top fold.

I used gold peel-offs to write happy birthday but you can really use this idea for any occasion.

I only needed card, paper, peel-off's, scissors and some ribbon.

The Diamond Top card was one of those folds that I though was difficult when I first started cardmaking.

But after having several attempts at it I discovered that it isn't as hard as I thought.

It makes a really unusual fold and it can be used for any occasion, male or female. It's how you dress it up that matters.

I tried to keep the instructions easy to follow so that beginners wouldn't be put off giving it a go ...and it seems to have worked, so well done.

Make a template first and keep it safe. That way you won't waste your good card while you practise.

The template will always be there for the future, and if you don't make the card for a while it will also refresh your memory on the measurements you need.
