I folded a piece of card in half, then took an old CD to create a template for an easel card. I printed a football the same size, from a cd, and the world cup was a down load from the-paper-craft-tutor.
I made the base green for the pitch, and did the writing in red to support England. This is for my Uncle who's birthday is while the World Cup is on.
Christina says... What a clever card and a very appropriate theme for your uncles card Margret, I hope he liked your creation. It is good to make cards with different themes, it all helps to keep the old brin box working. Thanks for sharing Margret.
This card is for my Father-In-Law, who loves to garden, and loves roses. I took the template for the Tri- Shutter card turned it on its side, (I saw this style on Create and Craft) The gardening tools and the watering can are made from the "Keepsake" Media'n Pastimes embossing board. I scanned the seed packets and then reduced the size. The gloves are foam covered with textured paper. The garden bench and tools are a down load, and then decoupaged. The verse I found on the internet.
What a very enterprising lady you are, and the card is lovely. I'm sure your father-in-law will be delighted with it. Thank you for sending the photo in Margaret, and for the instuctions on how you put it together.
This card was created after making a template on Word for the 60. I decoupaged the rose, and the champagne and glass were taken off another birthday card. I photo copied it, so I could reproduce it on other cards. I added the happy birthday peel off, a butterfly and a balloon.
Christina says... Lovely card Margaret and a good way to recycle stuff and save money in the process.
This card is for my nephew. I created a side step card, and I designed the backing paper by going to www.freecraftstuff.co.uk build your own backing paper. For the 21 I used "Word" to create a template, and the images are taken off the internet.
Christina says... This is very original card Margaret and I am sure your nephew was thrilled with it. It would suit all age groups and is a really good idea for those difficult male themed card. Thank you for sharing.
To create the shape of this card I went to "More Projects" on the Card Making Magic site and followed the Double Side Step Card instructions. My nephew has two passions which are music and Xbox, so I made the theme for this card Music.
Another lovely submission from the talented Margaret. I am so pleased you found the tutorial on my website for this card useful, keep up the good work. Thanks for sharing.
This is the same templates as the gardening apron. I scanned a recipe book and reduced the size to fit into the pocket. The rolling pin and wooden spoon are the images off a crafting CD. I added a smaller pocket with a sunflower in it.
Another lovely card and one that I am sure will be copied by other visitors to the website.
I created 2 templates in the shape of an apron, making one slightly smaller to fit on top of the larger one. This helped me to sandwich the ribbon for the neck and the side ties. The gardening tools are made from the "Keepsake" "Media 'n Pastimes" embossing board. I scanned a seed packet and then reduced the size to fit the pocket. The gloves are foam covered with texured paper.
Christina says... Very inventive Margaret and a lovely card.
I was asked to make this card, and I created an easel card from the instructions in "Easy Projects" on this website. The scalloped oval was made using the Glitter Girl "Majestic" embossing board and I found the verse on the internet. I finished it off by adding a few peeloffs.
Another lovely card Margaret. I have several Glitter Girls boards and they make some really good embellishments to add to your creations.
Used the template which Emile (USA) kindly shared on her gate fold card with telescoping ball card.
I copied the template on my computer to fit a A4 sheet. Put the template on a cream card and cut round it, then edged with gold peel offs, used green ribbon with footballs on and printed a big football on white embossed card for the centre.
I Had a template for a 21 and edged in gold peel offs, printed Happy Birthday on white card and covered with oval peel offs. Printed verse off and backed with gold card.
When closed edged again with gold peel offs, and used smaller footballs one with make a wish and the other with Happy Birthday.
This was made for my Nephew 21st Birthday. An easy template to follow did not take long to create.
Christina says ...
How wonderful of you to use Emilies' template and what a fantastic job you have made of it.
It was very kind of Emilie to add the full instructions for everybody to follow and they are very full and easy to see.
So thank you both so much and I love the sharing that is happening on these pages xx
