November 2010

The last class of the year for the cardmakers will be an easel card, with a twist - project by Jackie.  Also included will be a set of Christmas recipe cards, to make this a combined gift/card.  The images are courtesy of Debbie Moore, and the Mince pie recipe is from Cooking for Christmas, by Josceline Dimbleby.

The card has its own box - made from festive red card.

October 2010

This month, our project was courtesy of Brenda, and utilised the Arty Farty Bella Parasol template.  The side of the card was punched using a Martha Stewart punch, and a complementary panel was punched in the same card as used for the parasol.

Paper roses were used to decorate the top of the parasol, and it was edged with lace.

This month we were spoilt for choice with projects provided by Debbie Williams.

The first was an easel card, complete with cute snow family and "button" embellishments.

The second was a decoupaged Christmas pudding on a springy base.  This fold is surprisingly easy and effective.  The key point to remember is that the card should be made from heavyweight paper or thin card.  Too thin and it isn't robust enough to stand up, too thick and it isn't malleable enough to successfully fold.

The final card was a decoupaged winter scene with cute little figures. 

Unfortunately, I seem to have lost the photo, so will have to take another one.  To be posted at a later date...!!
