I am from Canada and since I discovered Card Making Magic and all your videos I made pleasure to make cards! I don't understand English very much but with you Christina I haven't difficulty to understand you because you don't speak fast and with the videos it's easier for me!!

This card was made for the Mother's day! A good friend of mine loves all my cards and when she have a special occasion, I make cards for her!

I took the idea in your video and I loved to make this card with bookmark, flowers that I made with Spellbinders, I love it!!

My website is on Facebook and the name you can find me is: Des occasions à la carte

Thank you Christina


Christina says ...

This is a beautiful card Danielle and I am sure that your mum was highly delighted with it on Mothers' Day.

Adding in the box always makes a card even more special and will protect the card as a treasure for years to come.

The colours you have chosen are so bright and cheerful and I love the very pretty flowers too.

Adding in the bookmark makes it an ideal mini gift and every time it is used it will remind the recipient of the sender.

When I made this Pleated Card, I was determined.
I realised this card not too easy to make! I looked at the video many times before I was ready and understood it correctly. I decide to do it!

For the explanation, I follow the video "Pleated Card with Spellbinders" and for the flowers, leaves, I was ok to made it!

I made the box to go with it and I'm very satisfied of the result!

Christina says ...

What a beautiful job you have done with this card Danielle it is just stunning and I am sure that you are delighted with the result.

Don't be afraid to try the more adventurous cards and then you too will be able to create designs as beautiful as Danielles'

Christmas Cards

by Danielle Designs
(Gatineau (Quebec) Canada)





I made those cards last year for Christmas...at this time I didn't know Christina!!

I'm proud of that today when I look at them because I was learning to made cards and let work my imagination!

I used Spellbinder for the blue one to make gifts, snowflake and tree.
I used Cuttlebug to embossed card stock and add little glitters!

Made an envelop to match with the card.

The second one is a card like a box when you open! I made this one for my mother in law and she adores it!
Christina has a video for this special card!

The third one is Origami tree. For the base of the card I cut a cardstock mesuring 15 X 30 cm and score in the middle.

I will explain the best that I can how I made branches.

I cut 5 squares with the paper of my choice.
(1 of 8,9 cm), (1 of 7,5 cm), (1 of 6,3 cm), (1 of 5 cm), (1 of 3,8 cm).

Fold each square in two vertically and horizontally. After fold in the two diagonals.

Fold each square along the horizontal line and back side inside.... you obtain 2 double triangle. Place the triangle point on the top, fold the right side of the superior triangle in the middle and make same thing with the left side.
Made that for each square!
Fit each branch into beginning with the large one. Glue on your card!

I hope that is not to complicated and you understand the way to do branches with origami method! Thank you!

Christina says ...

Origami is very popular and it is the Japanese art of paper folding. The tree looks lovely on your card and makes a very special Christmas card.

Thank you for telling us how you did the folds.

Another beautiful example of your work Danielle and this one is another in one of my favorite colours.

I love the matching envelope as this always add the personal touch and makes the finished design look so much richer.

Danielles' Design

by Danielle Roy

I have one collection of beautiful paper black and white with different design and I create this card with!

For the base of the card, I cut a cardstock measuring 11¾" X 5¾" and score at 4¼" and 8¾"

Cut 3 black cardstock measuring 4 3/8" X 5 7/8" (one for the front of the card and 2 for the inside)

Cut 2 black cardstock measuring 2 3/4" X 5 7/8" (for the little side part of the card)

I choose another design paper to put on the black one in the inside and inside of the little part!

I cut 10 stripe of 4½" X 1½" of different designs.
After, I cut each stripe diagonally to have tip.

I place the first tip in the middle of the front card and continue to put the others tips each side until I had a straight line. I made same thing on the little side part of the card but on opposite way.

Place a ribbon along the straight line, put a flower that I made with my collection design and decorate with a bow and glitter!

I try to explain all the processes that I take to made this card and hope you will enjoy it!!

Black and white always produce a very striking look and this card is lovely. The sunray effect to the front is very clever and looks wonderful with the flower centre.

Card For You - Pour toi (in french)

I haven't posted cards for a long time, but it's not because I stopped making them!!

I was very busy with many things and did some cards between this busy time!

This one I made to use my stash...I cut many square with different pattern of paper.

Each square measuring 1½ X 1½ inches and I glue each square on a pink card base measuring 5 X 5 inches.

I put a heart, decorated with flowers, glitter and note for the occasion!

I made a matching box to go with it!

I hope you will enjoy this card!

Thank you!

The card is very pretty and the patchwork design is very up to date.

I love the pearl flourish that you have used as this just adds that extra touch and of couscous the matching ox is the luxury element that makes it extra special

There is tutorial in the Easy Cardmaking section on creating a Patchwork card and it takes you step by step through what you need to do to get a card similar to Danielles'
