Card One – A Quick and simple using a card companion from the free CD-ROM with the Crafter’s Inspiration magazine.

Step 1: Print two sheets from Crafter’s Inspiration 10 – Sugar and Spice free collection onto Neenah Classic Crest Card.


Step: 2 Take a 7″ square card blank. Cut a piece from the background paper @ 6 3/4″, ink edges with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink and fix with Collall All Purpose Glue. Cut out the elements from the card companion and matt onto white card leaving a small border. Stick into the centre. Cut out two tags and glue together, punch a hole and add ribbon. Fix with Collall 3D Glue. Cut out two button and place with glue gel. Add a knot of ribbon and your card is complete!

Now lets have a look at the second card.

Card Two – taking it to the next level.


Step 1: Using the same sheets as above. Take an 8″ square card black. With the ‘Toulouse’ Create-a-Card die, cut the corners from  an A4 sheet of Sheena’s Stamping Card to create a square (it’s easier than cutting the card first) then stick to the card blank with Collall All Purpose Glue. Cut a diamond from the background paper measuring approx 5 1/2″ square and add to the centre.


Step 2: Matt the layers from the card companions onto Sheena’s card as before and raise each level with glue gel, adding a strip of lace across the centre.


Step 3: Stamp a sentiment and bee with trail onto a blank tag, then layer as before with a ribbon tie and add with 3D Glue. Add the button as before. Add gems to the flower centres and a little Spectrum Sparkle Clear Overlay to the blooms and butterflies. Tie a small bow and add to the bunch. Finish with pearls on the corners.

Step 4: Use the smaller image and a banner to create interest on your insert too.

Have lots of fun with these projects, they would make great cards for many occasions!
