British Wild At Heart : The Deer


I would like to share with you, how to make one of the cards that I made for Creative Crafting World

Using the wonderful new Pollyanna Pickering cd rom called British Wild At Heart.

You will need:

British Wild At heart dvd rom
1 x 8” by 8” white card
1 x 6” by 6” white card
Lynda’s black card
The paper boutique flowers & leave die set
Foam Pads
Double sided tape
Wet glue


Choose an image and three papers from the dvd rom. I chose one fully patterned paper and two papers that had a pattern at the side only.
Then decide which two you would like to use for the base and front fold of the 8” by 8” card and the paper that is left is for the 6” by 6” card.

Score the front of the 8” by 8” white card at 4” and the 6” by 6” white card at 3”.
This will make both of these into a z fold card shape.

Next cut all the layers out that are needed to make this design:

Black card:
1 x 19.5cms by 19.5cms
1 x 19.5cms by 9.5cms
1 x 14.5cms by 14.5cms
2 x 7cms by 14cms

Base paper:
1 x 19cms by 19cms

Front fold paper:
1 x 19cms by 9cms

6” by 6” card paper:
1 x 14cms by 14cms
2 x 13.5cms by 6.5cms

Matt and layer each of these together, for example the black card measuring 19.5cms by 19.5cms is a base layer for the paper measuring 19cms by 19cms

Next using wet glue attach the layers to the card bases. You will see which layer goes where due to the size of them. Add foam pads to the topper as this will add dimension to the card.

Here is a picture of the 8” by 8” card with matts and layers on.

Here is a picture of the 6” by 6” card with matts and layers on.

Now both cards are decorated it’s time to put them together.

On the 6” by 6” card put some double sided tape onto the back part of the card that has the image on and some onto the back of the right hand panel.

Position this onto the 8” by 8” (please see picture for ref)

All that is left is to decorate the card using the flowers and leaves die set and the pieces of paper that you have left, adding a pearl to the centre of the flowers.
