Another Card Made From Create It Magazine Issue 6

Hi there
Here is more inspiration from Create It Magazine Issue 6.
I printed off Kit 4 Cute Parisienne Street.
Ran blue mirri card through Sheena Douglass Embossing Folder - Clouds and attached to a Creative Crafting World 7"x10" easel card with a fancy top.
I attached the background to the mirri card and then decoupaged the houses, finished off with paper buttons and a Retirement sentiment.
Till the next time.

Make It - In Sympathy Gatefold Card

Today I'm delving into the archive again with a card made from one of our older Cds called "In Sympathy". The CD was created especially for those times when you need to send a card to someone, when words are simply not enough.

 Front Outer
Inside Spread

This card is a blue and chocolate brown 6x6 gate fold card made from the resources on the CD. To watch how I created the card from start to finish simply click the thumbnail below.

Card made from Create It Magazine Issue Six

Hi there
My inspiration for this week is a card kit from the Create It Magazine Issue 6 available to buy HERE
I printed off and cut out all elements I needed. I scored a white sheet of A4 card into a A5 and ran it through my die cut machine using a Tonic Die-Big Day Strip Die and Stamp set on the edge. I resized the striped backing paper in Craft Artist Pro and attached to the front of the card. Attached 3D foam pads to the tag and stuck down on the front and added the paper ribbon and ribbon strip on the top and bottom. Attached paper buttons with 3D foam pads. Cut out the sentiments and attached to the die cut with double sided tape. I resized the 2nd backing sheet and attached as the insert.
Till the next time.
