Hi and welcome to my blog
(or welcome back if you’ve visited before).
Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog
Cards As Gifts – 10th Batch
This batch is larger than my previous batches of half a dozen cards I showed you from this series that I made to give in small packs to friends and family. If you haven’t seen the first post explaining what I’ve been up to then you can see it – here .
10 packs have gone out, one having a few more cards in it. I should say that they haven’t gone out in packs as per the batches I’ve been showing here – I actually photographed them as I was going along, I then put all the cards in envelopes and separated them out into bundles at random, so I have no idea which cards went to which people – other than the two A4 sized ones which went in the larger batch of eleven cards.
What I Did
Have a look at my previous post – here – if you’ve not already read about what I did to create the cards.
What I Used
- Hunkydory Twighlight Safari Collection
- Addition of some extra cardstock and base cards to extend the collection
- Fingerlift Tape
- Foam Tape
- Paper Trimmer – Cutterpiller Pro
- Glue – Pinflair Bookbinding Glue
- Ultra Tacky (red liner) Tape
- Pearlescent Paper
- Brother Scan’n’Cut
- We’R’Memory Keepers Foiling Quill
- Brown Heat Activated Foil
- 100gsm White Paper (for printing inserts)
- Stamping Press
- Stamp (with my details on – ordered from Dreamees some time ago)
- ColourBox Black Ink
These are not in batches as they were sent out, just as they were made and photographed.
All 10 packs have now been received by the randomly chosen recipients from our Christmas card list.
So that’s the end of these series of posts showing all the cards I made to give away to friends and family. As I showed at the start of the month I have used items from the collection to decorate the May page of my mother’s calendar, but there are still a lot of elements left from the collection that I haven’t used, so I expect you’ll be seeing more of them used over the next year or so. In the meantime, I’m working on a few other things that will be appearing on my blog before long.

You should find a box at the bottom of each post where you can leave a Comment if you feel like it. (If you can't see the comment box then there should be a link that says "Comments" or "Leave a Reply" and clicking on that will bring up the box.) Due to problems with Spam/advertising posts, 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.
