World Cup Uncle

by Margret Keddie
(Lancashire)


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.

To A Special Dad

To A Special Dad

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.


Christina says...

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.

Enjoy Your 60th

Enjoy Your 60th

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.

Happy Gardening

by Margaret Keddie
(Lancashire)


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.

The rose was off an old birthday card.

I edged it with a gold ink pad, then did the same around the edge of the card.

I used a punch for the border and butterfly.

I love the embossing under the rose, it really adds depth to the background.

With Love At Christmas

by Margaret Keddie
(Lancashire)


I created an easel card.

(Instructions to make the easel card can be found in Easy Projects)

I used a textured red card for the base, and gold glitter card for the stand.

Metallic thread was used for the base and star, and normal green cotton for the branches.

It is finished off with peel offs and gold holly.

Textures and shapes are important on this card, because it was made for our friend Gary (who is blind) for him to send to his Mum at Christmas.

21st Birthday using gate fold card

by Margaret
(Lancashire)




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
