1Lighted Christmas Ornaments with Drum Pyramid Sheet  2A4 new baby on pastel shawl for boy or girl  3New baby on pastel shawl insert with two oval spaces  4White Beauty  5Cloudy sky with yellow field

  1. Lighted Christmas Ornaments with Drum Pyramid Sheet by Carol Lepard and White Candle vellum by Deborah Davies (Easy card to make as just a straight edge to cut for the pyramid and straight trimming to make the base card.)
  2. A4 new baby on pastel shawl for boy or girl by Susan Alison (For this card I simply printed the A4 sheet out at a little smaller than half size so that it fit on an A5 card with some matting and layering.  A quick and simple card to make.)
  3. New baby on pastel shawl insert with two oval spaces by Susan Alison (This is the insert I put into the baby card.  Again just print, trim, score and fold before giving the corners a quick punch and sticking in.  What could be simpler?)
  4. White Beauty by Deborah Davies (As there were lots of layers on the sheet I used to make this I just separated them every other layer to make two cards.  This kept the profile of each card low for posting.)
  5. Cloudy sky with yellow field by Silvia Griffin (I printed this background out at under A5 size and simply trimmed, matted and layered it to make a card, just putting a greeting on top.  What could be easier?)

  1. She was proud of her borders. Dog gardener. Wavy Stacker by Susan Alison (The wavy edge of the stacker is the most difficult bit to cut out on any of the cards on display here, and that isn’t hard to cut at all.  It’s a lovely image of a sheepdog in a garden.)
