Ceded to temptation and bought a bundle from Crafters Companion including a back edition of their monthly kit. Have raced through it trying to use up some of the supplies as I am trying to reduce the craft room stash.
Another 20 cards made and there is still a stack of paper and card to use up as well as a jar of buttons.
My favourite so far and a range of non festive makes which I really like. Wrapping paper, cards, tags and bags that will be used and a set of dies, stamps, inks and stencils that have added to my supplies. Good value!
I have been recycling an old Lesley Anne Ivory perpetual diary into cat cards and decided to put the Christmas cats into one bundle.
These images just need matting onto card before adding to the A6 card front. I cut the ‘Merry Christmas’ and bow, using papercraft society November kit dies, from the mat card before sticking the image on to it.
Finished with some sequins or gem stones these now make a cat lover’s Christmas kit. Think I like the non traditional colours best.
If you are going to make a card make multiples. It makes sense even if you give away the spares. Most time is spent gathering supplies and planning layouts rather than the assembly, so three takes hardly any more time than one.
Here I used some ancient craftwork cards antiqued papers matted on some papermania textured cardstock (bought in a handy A5 colour block). I cut the sentiment – dovecraft– and Sheenabotanicals flowers from the mat before sticking it on the card base. Only the edge of the mat shows and the paper is good quality – plus this keeps the impact subtle, just what I want for a sympathy card. Two cards were embellished with Candi buttons, but not sure if that makes them too fussy.
