Cards of the Moment, etc

Cards of the Moment:

As I’m writing this (Monday 29th August at 2.50pm in the UK) I have three of my cards chosen as “Card Gallery Item of the Moment” by the designers who’s designs I used to make the cards.

Thank you very much to each of the designers concerned.

Of course, by the time you read this blog post, the designers may have changed their choice of “Card of the Moment” but you can still click through to see the actual designs and cards.

1Winter scene 002  2Golden Wedding Aniversary Card - Back  3Butterly Oval Frame

  1. Winter scene 002 by Astrid Spijkers (This is a simple card front with pyramid layers to the centre section.  All straight cutting so easy to make.)
  2. GSD Petal Power 2 by Angela Burke (This item is a cutting file for a CraftROBO, so although it looks very intricate the work is done by the electronic cutting machine, not by the card-maker.  I used the cut petal power panel as a framed greetings panel on the back of a Bookatrix card to make it extra special.  Don’t forget that, when you make a beautiful front to your cards the inside or back can also be decorated.)
  3. Butterly Oval Frame – GSD by Anne Huxter (Another cutting file for a CraftROBO.  I’ve used the Butterfly Oval Frame as a main focal point with some of the loose butterflies “flying” in the centre.)
