Marlene's Blog Candy

As promised I'm back, albeit a little late, but I've actually had an opportunity to make a few cards today and catch up on some of the challenges. I've got one to post tonight but will have to photograph the others tomorrow morning in the daylight.

This card is for Marlene's blog candy....she's got some wonderful candy on offer and to take part, all you have to do is make a card in her favourite colour green, using some ribbon. Now, I have to admit that I am really out of my comfort zone using green.....don't know why, but I try to avoid it if I can. Because of this, I've kept the card very simple and in fact, based my previous card for Tilda & Co., on this one.


For this card, I've used Edwin sat on his pencil again, coloured with Prismas and Sansodor with glamour dust on his wings. He has been cut and embossed with Nestabilities and a Woodware sentiment stamped underneath him. I've used Pink Petticoat olive green designs printed onto lightweight c.s. with the plain piece embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. White grosgrain ribbon from Dovecraft was used and image was added with foam pads.

My First Christmas Card!

I saw this card demonstrated by Sue Wilson last year and have only just got around to having a go!

I'm not completely happy with the colour of the holly as I feel it is a little too bright.

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.
