Silver Anniversary Pop-out Card ...

... another commission! This time a 25th anniversary card for a friend's friend. It is A5 white tapestry card, both inside and out. The front has a silver panel with a piece of white organza ribbon wrapped round it with a Wizard buckle. There are two panels on top of that, matted with more tapestry card (how generous am I?) and cuttlebug embossed with bells, and champagne flutes. Finished off with Happy 25 Anniversary. Inside the heart was embossed from the Glitter Girls Romance board and cut out. The backing sheet is a piece of vellum I printed on with 25th Anniversary, and Silver Anniversary in silver colour. The cut out heart is stuck on top of the vellum with the peoples names (Paul & Christine). To finish off an cuttlebug embossed panel on the left and the greetings on the right, both on silver panels, and peel-offs.

A card in a hurry! (+ DCM Challenge - A Golden Moment)

As a quick request for a friend. A6 yellow card, with a topper from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Companion 3 CD set, held on with brads and a peel-off down one side. It also has an insert with the same image, and one of the small toppers on the back too.
Again I am cheating for the DCM challenge!!! This is one I made last week, but I think it fits the "golden moment" remit!!! Hope you agree.

This time we are giving you just One Word
as the inspiration for your card making and that word is GOLDEN You can use the
word in any way you like - the word itself doesn't even have to be on the card,
for instance you could make a card in golden shades, or maybe inspired by the
seasons of Spring or Autumn which both feature lots of golden

Handbag card ...

... for a friend who has just go a new job.
It is made using silver snake skin paper from Coppernob, the Glitter Girls board with the bag on it (I think it is called "dressed to impress"!), and embellished with peel-offs. Inside is a mandala from Joanna Sheen's Fabulous Flowers CD.

It is a ruffled oval from the Glitter Girls Majestic board, and papyrus backing paper from Joanna Sheen's Egyptian Adventure CD. The flowers are made from the Bookatrix board, as are the leaves. The paper used for the flowers is from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Companion 3 CD set. I have used vellum for the butterfly wizard die, and lightly chalked it. Finished off with a few peel-offs.
