Using my newset purchase to create an equestrian card

I got a great set from Kanban of equestrian toppers, borders and baking papers. It is a stunnig set with a huge range of differen’t horses in many shapes and sizes. I really loved coming up with this card idea. I knew I wanted a tall card to use this amazing oval topper and as…

Foiled fish card, a calming ocean scene

You may well be glad to see a card that doesn’t have a mermaid but i’m afraid this is still a similar theme and a stamp from the same free set. Cardmaking and papercraft really does provide some great free gifts i  their magazine, I am so glad I subscribed. I love the cute fish…

Mermaid at the waterfall; a chalk and silver ink card

Experimenting with zig-zag card making with a cat card

This is the first of two zig-zag cards made with a pale blue card but note I made two cards with one A4 piece…

Another few Christmas cards made using red and gold
