I love card making to create very differen’t cards.

I used an insert paper from an old Hunydory kit to help start three of these four cards. I then layered this with other paper kits and the fun of fussy cutting. This card used mainly the large image from the hunkydory paper insert but this glossy high quality paper is far too stunning to…

How-to blue art deco card

I decided that the last post didn’t explain very well on how I created my art deco cards only using a few elements from the Hunkydory page and making this stretch out to making multiple cards from just the one A4 sheet. I recreated the basic shape using my own patterned paper and pale blue…

I made three gate fold cards from one A4 piece of Hunky Dory Scorable adorable. I do think using a score board would be much quicker and easier but I managed well enough with a ruler and bone folder tool. Creating the mirror frame was a bit tricky with needing to cut out the central…

Festive accordian cards with very classic images.

I love the classical images for Christmas and these images are all very subtly glittered. I chose the layer up three of the images for each card. First I chose the papers to back the images with using greens nd reds from my paper pack of festive paper. I then cut the larger panels of…

A trio of foiled fish to make a shimmering sea themed card

Under the sea, under the sea… I couldn’t help but sing the song as I made up this card. So bright and cheerful and just good fun. Until I got to all the fussy cutting, it took a great deal of time to cut out the seaweeds and fish, I enjoy fussy cutting but even…
