Pop-Up Travel Card

Happy New Year to all!
My grandchildren are off to the east coast
for a holiday, so I thought I'd take the
opportunity to make this card for them.
I just recently bought a Cricut Everyday
Pop-Up Cartridge, so I have cut out the
phrase and images from it, I also have
stamped and added glitter glue to the card.
I guess I'd better make another the same,
might be trouble if they have to share. ;-)

Origami Xmas Wreath Easel Card

After spending six weeks in hospital my Mum
has finally come home. She has had a stroke,
but not a very bad one thank goodness. She 
has some memory loss and her mobility is 
getting better. 
My card this week I got the idea from Crafty Capers
I was in the store last week when I saw the origami 
Christmas card and they kindly gave me the pattern.
I have used die cuts, a bell, rhinestones and I heat
embossed the sentiment.

Sleigh and also the Christmas sentiment were
stamped and heat embossed, the label,
poinsettias, reindeers and front sentiment
were die cuts. I added some glitter glue
and adhesive rhinestones. Am entering this in Make-it-Monday#115

Magpie Easel Card

This week is my son's 36th Birthday, 
so I had to come up with an idea for 
a card. He has always been a 
 Collingwood supporter (much to the
disgust to the rest of the family).
I printed of several copies of the logo 
from the Internet and made it into
a 3d image, the football I also found
on the Internet. The image has been
glued to a die cut, which I inked the
edges with a cotton bud. The card
was then finished off with peel-off's,
SB paper and a punched edge.
Now to clean up my mess!

Wedding Card

I have made this card from a kit, the image is a
3d, I have hand painted some glitter glue on some
of the embossing. The card is for a friend who is
getting married next month. I'm afraid it hasn't 
photographed very well, maybe I needed more
natural light.
