Cool Cards

Here are some cool folded cards I made – hopefully loosely based on cards I saw Sally making. She hasn’t forwarded the instructions yet but I stumbled across some instructions on the net (as per usual I can’t remember where – I’ll fill you in if I spot them again) and think they are similar.

It is hard to tell from a scan but it is like a card within a card – the top rectangle folds back to the right, you then unfold the left and a space to write your message is revealed. And Sally was right – once you have the measurements they come together pretty quickly.



Thanks for looking.

New Stamp Set

I received a new stamp set and as always happens I get all carried away and use nothing else for a while afterwards – sorry but the next few posts will be 101 ways with Baroque Motifs. I just LOVE ti and after admiring it for about a year I just had to have it.

Most of my cards will be similar but in a different colour way – and most will have been cased from someone else.


Thanks for looking

Here are a couple of swap cards I have done recently. There is an Autumn card, a ‘shaped’ card (anything but rectangular) and a “j” ATC.

Happy Birthday Mum


It was Mum’s birthday last week – on St Patrick's Day. She was away on holiday so didn’t have to post it to get to her on time – but must get it posted soon!

Here is the card I made for her.

Here are some pictures of my triptych for a swap – it was a real challenge but I love it now! It looks heaps better in real life and I hope the person that receives it loves it as much as I do!

The colours were to be ‘Vintage’ and the theme was ‘friends’ I created mine all joined together so they folded up and made it like a little house where you can see things in through the door and window.
