Cardz4Galz – more than one fold

Hello there. I have a bright card to share today for the new challenge beginning at Cardz 4 Galz. This time we want to see your girlie cards with more than one score/fold. Here is my card:

After creating the card base I looked to use a large image for the rectangle on the front. I used the Tracey Hey Designs ‘catitude’ stamp set, and coloured the lion image with Copics – some minor shading, but not too much.

I then looked through my paper stash to fins some colours to match, and found a selection of purple and oranges which seemed to fit the bill perfectly.

These were measured and cut using my Cutterpillar, then stuck down.

When I closed the card it looked a little bare to me, so I also added some scalloped purple borders using a die set from Lawn Fawn – which I think kinda matched the shape of the mane.

I hope you can come and join us in our challenge and I hope to see you in our gallery. xx

Coloured Vellum Strip

A quick post today, for the new challenge beginning at Cardz 4 Galz. The theme this time is to use vellum on your project – lots of choices of where to go with this, and I look forward to seeing your creations:

I used The Ton ‘Fab Day Peony‘ stamp set on some Lawn Fawn vellum – heat embossing with gold, coloured the back of the images with the colours you see, die cut the edges with Lawn Fawn ‘Stitched Scalloped Borders‘, and stuck down.

I’m trying to keep my Design Team duties and responsibilities going, and crafting is helping me get through losing my dad a few days ago – very therapeutic and healing to create – it is helping me deal with things – but my blog posts will be a little shorter than usual.
