Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog.
I wanted to create a few crafted items to give as prizes for a raffle being held at a coffee morning in aid of our chapel. One item I decided to donate was a small set of cards in a framed box. This was simply presented in a cello bag taped at the back. I’ve left the bag off for the photos though I still don’t think the photos are as good as they could be.
- Items from Pollyanna Pickering kit
- Shadow Box Frame from Hunkydory
- Fingerlift tape
- Wet glue
- Nuvo alcohol markers
- Pre-scored and cut square, scalloped edge, white card bases, with envelopes
I did a bit of cutting of a strip of background to go with each card and cut a V shape out of the bottom of each strip. These were stuck down the centre of each card, top to bottom. I then stuck a panel onto each card. I went round the edge of the scallops using an alcohol marker in a suitable colour.
This is one of the cards I made
I haven’t put any greeting on the card, either on the outside or on the insert that I placed on the inside, but I have put an envelope with a selection of greetings tags in English and Welsh in the frame box with the cards. These already have fingerlift tape or some other method of sticking them on so that the person who gets the cards can decide what greeting suits them best.
Here are the other three cards in the collection:
I also decorated the shadow box frame I put the 4 cards in using material from the same kit, so that the box itself can be used as decoration after the cards have been used. It has a fold out stand on the back.

(Thank you for reading this far. I hope you like what you’ve seen and read – You should find a box below where you can leave a comment if you feel like it, but due to the fact that, like many I’m sure, I’ve had some problems with Spam/advertising posts that are absolutely nothing to do with the content of my blog, I now moderate all comments before they go live. Genuine comments will go live when I’ve checked through the list – usually a couple of times a day.)
