Reflection Card


This is my effort of a reflection card, I found a demo 
on youtube , I have used Crafty Individuals stamps.
I am only a learner with stamps so I'm not very 
good at it! I stamped the trees on blue pearl card, 
because of this the ink is pale instead of black. The reindeer
and grass are die cuts, I have used glitter glue on the
reflection.

I have embroidered the front and added a photo
of my son, taken over thirty years ago. I have added

I found this idea in the current issue of Australian issue
of Simply Cards. The cardstock is 16x30cm, and 
concertina-fold at 4cm, 8cm, 14.5cm and 21cm.
 I just added patterned panels, stamped sentiment,
die cuts, MS punch skeleton fern, paper flower and
the photo is my grandmother (I'm sending it to my
cousin in the US). It folds up very neatly and will fit
into a small envelope, easy for posting!

Christmas Photo Carousel


Like Loz I thought I'd give it a go at
making the carousel from the Docrafts
Magazine. I made it a bit smaller, but
it still seems to be too big. I think it
might make a good table centre piece for
the Christmas table, and yes the little
girl in the photo is me! Taken in Myers
Melbourne over half a century ago.

and a owl charm.

Floral Card


At first I didn't know where I was going with this card,
I wanted to create petals with heart die cuts. I added
a brad in the centre, I'm not sure what I think of it!
Anyhow I made it with die cuts, rhinestones, glitter glue
and a peel-off sentiment.
