Cor Blimey 5 in 1 !!!

I even had to write them all down and check first. I absolutely love this card, its definetley going to someone who appreciates the work that has gone into it as it took me two hours to do, good job I'm not on piece rate! These are the challenges it covers Creative Card Tuesday - Everybody emboss, Sketch Card Saturday - to follow sketch #49, Colour Create - Chocolate, red and cream, A Spoon full of sugar - Touchy Feely and finally ABC Challenge - M for Metallic. Now to the card.


Its the first 8" square card I have made and what a huge difference this makes, so much room! The flowers I made by quilling them. I had been making them wrong until I watched a lady demonstrating on create and craft she showed another way and it was so much easier. Papers and ribbons are from my stash. The lovely gorguss girl is from a recent image swap, thanks Shirley. Anyway must go, the kids are clamouring for the pc!!!!

Thanks for looking

  9. To make a insert for a 8"x8" card, I use a A3 piece of paper folded in half, to make a A4 size, but i put a small piece of double sided tape in one corner, then print like you would on a A4 size, and if you want to put a surrounding around it, I use My Craft Studio to create the design, then print on both sides of the A4 piece.

  20. Wow! Julie
    No wonder it took you two hours to make to combine it with all those challenges. It would have given me brain damage trying to work it out. It is beautiful.
