Fold Flat Green House Card
Hi everyone, welcome back to my Sizzix week and today I have an adorable and very simple greenhouse card for you. The great thing is that it folds completely flat for posting. I have even made an envelope for it. I hope you like it and will give it a try.

Record Card & Sleeve.
Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog and my last project in my Fathers Day Week series. I really hope you have enjoyed it and it has given you some ideas on male cards etc. If you follow me, you will know that I don’t make male projects at all really. I just don’t have many men in my life and I just prefer to make projects for women. I find male projects a struggle if I’m honest so I hope I did okay this week. It was difficult for me but I did it!
The last project is this really cool vinyl record and sleeve. Its very quick & simple to make and its so quirky! Again this card could be made for so many different occasions, not just Fathers Day. I am really pleased with it and it looks quite realistic!
Below you can find all the measurements in metric & imperial. Please also make sure to check out my Youtube video 🙂

Domed Front Card.
Hi everyone,welcome to project #5 of my Fathers Day Week. Today i have a really elegant and simple Domed front card. I love this type of card. Its really quick to make and you can decorate it anyway you like. I went for Cogs and Clocks. I love the gold embossing on the front of the card.
This card could be made for Ladies Birthdays, Weddings, Get well soon, Mothers day and lots more. You would have to make some sort of box to gift it in though as its not designed to fold flat.

Christmas Gift Card Holder
Hi my crafty friends,
Welcome to the 2nd instalment of my festive Friday series.
Today we are using the amazing Quilted Christmas Bundle. Oh my word!! I am so in love with this bundle. It is absolutely gorgeous!! The possibilities are endless. This has to be one of my favourites so far.
This definitely beats a boring plain envelope to give a gift card. I hope you like it and will make some of these yourself.
Garden Green card measures 8 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ OR 21 cm x 10.8 cm
Score the long side @ 5 1/2″ OR 14 cm

No Die Pop Up Card.
Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog and day two of my Sizzix week. I am so excited to share this pop-up card with you! It’s so cool and you don’t need a die to create the pop-up mechanism. A lady posted a card like this in my Facebook craft group last week. I thought it was so cool! I found a free template online to create the pop-up ball mechanism. I will put all the links under my YouTube tutorial. You just need to print it off and cut it out.
I used the Love Birds Shadow Box die set from Sizzix to decorate my card. I love this die set! Its just the cutest thing ever. The little birds are so sweet. You get everything included like the hearts & flowers etc. Of course you can decorate your Pop-up card any way you like. I’m sure you will make more than one of these!
The great thing about this card is that it folds down completely flat! Because you add an elastic band inside it creates a kind of spring action. Its not hard to make and you will love it and so will the recipient!
Below you can find the measurements for the card in metric and imperial.
CARD BASE MEASURES 12 X 6″ SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 3″ & 9″ OR 30.5 CM X 15.2 CM SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 7.6 CM & 22.9 CM

Football Easel Card.
Hi everyone,Welcome to project #4 of my Fathers Day Week. Today i have a really quick and simple Football easel card. This card could be made for so many different occasions, Birthdays, Get well soon cards, loads of different things. It would also make a great card for kids too.
All you need to make it is a Circle Die, a small Hexagon die and some card. It lays down flat so you can post it. I glued my sentiment onto some craft foam so that it lifted it up and also doubled as the stopper .
My circle die was about 6″ and my Hexagon was about 2 1/4″. Its really quick to make. Please make sure to check out my Youtube tutorial for step by step instructions.

Fathers Day Shirt Card.
Hi Everyone,Welcome to project number 3 of my Fathers Day week. Today i have a very sweet shirt/suit card. As the title suggests, the shirt drops down and you can decorate the inside however you wish. Its a really cute card and the great thing is no dies are required. All you need is some card, paper a Pencil & Ruler.
I choose some Balloons & stars to decorate mine but i also think it would look nice if you put a picture inside or maybe a lovely verse. You have a few different options. I had a stamp set that had a Tie in it so i just stamped, coloured in and then fussy cut it out. If you don’t have a stamp like mine you could just use a Bow die and have a Bow Tie instead. You can also make your own Bows if you have an envelope punch board.
My faux stitching was created using a white gel pen & i think it really sets the card off. The buttons are die cuts but i think they are a little big for my card. You can of course use real Buttons if you have any.
Below you can find all the dimensions in Metric & Imperial. Please also make sure to check out my Youtube tutorial.
CARD BASE MEASURES 8″ X 5″ SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 2″ & 6″ OR 20.4 CM X 12.7 CM SCORE @ 5CM & 15.2 CM

Beginners Shabby Chic Cards.
Thank you for stopping by my Blog today. You will remember that yesterday i posted a my very first shabby chic style card. I was really pleased with it and i got some lovely comments on how pretty it was. I also got lots of people saying they have tried making them but they do not end up looking nice etc. I said i would be making some videos on these type of cards anyway. Today i wanted to share a beginner type video as i am a total beginner on these types of cards. I hope that you will feel confident enough to try making one again or make one for the first time. Its great fun and very therapeutic i find.
If you follow me you will no that i LOVE watching Lady E Designs. I have to say that lots of my inspiration comes from this very talented Lady. Here is a link to her blog http://scrapartbyladye.blogspot.com/ Her cards & flowers are just stunning and she makes everything so easy to follow. Please check her out if you haven’t already.
I hope one day that i will become as good as Lady E Designs. For now i am a beginner in this style and i want you to feel confident that if i can do it then you can to 🙂
Now that i have made a few of these types of cards i think i am hooked and i just love trying new things. I said yesterday that we all need a change now and again and we really do. In the video for these cards i told you how i made my own embellishments. Its so easy to do and if you have lots of dies like me you can make all kinds of embellishments.

Beautiful You Screen Card
I love screen cards and i have never really made one before. They really are beautiful and would look so nice displayed on the mantle piece.
For my card i used Dapper Demin card measuring 6 1/2″ x 11″ scored on the long side @ 2 3/4″, 5 1/2″ & 8 1/4″
For the panels i used 4 pieces of whisper white measuring 2 1/2″ x 4″
For the bottom of the card i used the decorative label punch and for the top i used an EK punch that i already had in my craft stash.
The stamp sets i used were Beautiful You & Timeless textures
I only used 2 Ink pads which were Dapper Denim & Mint Macaron
I used a stamp from Timeless textures to stamp a border around all 4 panels.
I stamped the 2 sentiments with versa mark and heat embossed with gold powder, i stamped that over the squiggle stamp from beautiful you.
One lady was stamped in Mint macaron and the other in Dapper denim, they were both colored over with clear wink of stella.
To finish off i placed some Dapper denim enamel shapes on the card.

Beautiful Easel Hat Card & Hat Box
Welcome to my Blog & as always, thank you so much for stopping by. You may remember a few weeks ago i made a beautiful easel Hat/Bonnet card with a presentation gift box. At the time i was trying out different video techniques & that video happened to be sped up & had a voice over. A few people messaged me & asked if i could possibly redo the tutorial in ‘real time’. So i have! The other reason i wanted to redo it was because i really wanted to make a mini Hat box to gift the card. I am thrilled with how it turned out & i hope you are to.
This would make a perfect Mothers Day Card. That’s what i have decided to use mine for. As you can see in the picture, i die cut the word ‘Mam’ in silver glitter card. I also added a silver glitter bow on top of the lid. I just love the way this turned out & anyone would be thrilled to receive this. They could also use the hat box as storage afterwards.
It really is a very simple project to make & i have seen so many people re make it. I love seeing people trying my tutorials & ideas. Please feel free to send me any pictures of your creations. You can send them to my email address or via Facebook or Instagram.

Beautiful 3D Flower Card & Drop Down Gift Box.
Hi Everyone 🙂 so i said on Facebook the other day that i would be doing another Flower video today. I thought i might as well make this a ‘Flower’ week! I think i may do another Flower video for Sunday too. I am sure you have seen these cards in Florists or Florist online etc. They are beautiful but again they can be pricey. Not only that but as they are fresh Flowers, they don’t last very long. However this one will last such a long time as they are all artificial 🙂
I think this makes such a beautiful & elegant gift. The gift box was very simple to make & i think it just makes a complete gift for someone special. I do also sell these if anyone would like to order one. You can email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org or even message me via Facebook.
Please make sure to check out my step by step tutorial on Youtube. You can also find all the links for products etc under the video. If i have missed something off just let me know.
I think you will agree this is beautiful and i would be thrilled if i received one. It is most definitely a gift you can display & enjoy for such a long time.
