World Wildlife – Margay

World Wildlife – Margay

This card has been made using the World Wildlife dvd rom by Pollyanna Pickering and Creative Crafting World.

The image is of a Margay cat, which is a small cat native to Central and South America.

For this card design I decided to make an easel card.

Materials used:

8″ by 8″ white scallop card
World Wildlife dvd rom
The paper boutique nested Thank you die set
The paper boutique sentiments collection 2
White card
Green card
Small butterfly die
Leaf die
Small green pearls
Foam pads
Glue

Instructions:

Print off an image and two different papers from the dvd rom.

Score the front of the 8″ by 8″ white scallop card in half and then fold. This will make the easel part of the card.

Next with one of the papers cut two pieces measuring approx,  19 cms by 9 cm and a 19 cm by 19 cm.

Using these two pieces glue the smaller one to the front fold (this is the section of card where the topper will be placed onto).

Glue the larger piece to the bottom of your easel (this is the section that would normally be the inside of the card but as we are making an easel card it becomes the base).

Cut a piece of the chosen paper, measuring approx 14 cms by 8 cms and then a piece of white card measuring approx 12 cms by 6 cms. Matt and layer these together (white card on top). Attach foam pads to this and place on to the bottom of the easel card. (Please see picture for ref).
This has now made a stopper for the easel card, as the front will sit perfectly behind this.

With the other paper cut out the decorative die from the paper boutique and then using white card cut out the matt layer and then glue these together.

Next layer on the topper using glue. (For my card I used a stacker image so I already have abit of height to my card, if you have chosen a flat image I would suggest that you use foam pads to attach the topper)
With foam pads attached this to the top of the easel at a slight angle.

Using the leaf die, cut out five in one of the papers and five out of green card. Glue two of each to the corner of the topper and then one of each to the base of the easel card. (Please see picture for ref)

Cut out a sentiment, using green for the base layer and one of the papers for the sentiment. Using foam pads attach this to the bottom corner of the topper.

Add a couple of die cut butterflies and green pearls to finish off the card.

Music

Music

This card has been made using a 6″ by 6″ white card.

For this card I have used ribbon, washi tape and my scan and cut.

I first cut a white and black layer for my design.

With the white layer I added the music washi tape and music ribbon.

I then matted the white card onto the black card and used double sided sticky tape to attach these to my white base card.

Once this was in place I added my guitar, words and music symbols. These were all cut out using the images on the scan and cut machine.

Countryside Collection : Owl

Countryside Collection : Owl

This beautiful card has been made using Pollyanna Pickering’s Countryside Collection.

For this card I have used an 8″ by 8″ card.

Firstly I used my Martha Stewart punch on the edge of my card and added red gems to the cut out flowers that the punch had made.

I then matted and layered my papers on to matching coloured card.

Before I added the blue layer to my card base I added some royal blue ribbon and then placed the red layer of paper and card onto this making sure not to cover the ribbon.

I used double sided tape to attach these to my card base.

The topper has been decoupaged and then matted and layered on to blue coloured card as I thought this would bring all the layers together. I have then used foam pads to attach this to the card.

To finish my card design off I added matching coloured flowers with clear gems in the center.

A Walk In The Wild

A Walk In The Wild

This orangutan card has been made using Pollyanna Pickering’s dvd rom “A Walk In The Wild”

I decided to use circle shapes for the main design of this card.

Using my Todo circle dies I cut two circles out of the blue paper and one brown circle, these are all papers from the dvd rom.

I layered these up onto an 8″ by 8″ card, adding a brown border strip to the blue circles before I put the brown circle in place.

I then decoupaged the image and placed this on the brown circle.

I added flowers that we’re also printed from the dvd rom giving them each a gold coloured gem for the center and lastly a sentiment.

For some of the flowers and sentiment I have used foam pads to raise them off the card.

 

Best of Breeds : Border Collie

Best of Breeds : Border Collie

The image and background papers used in this card are printed from Pollyanna Pickering’s Best of Breeds dvd rom.

This card was made for a sample for Creative Crafting World

For this card design I have used a 7″ by 10″ card.  I folded the card as normal and then scored one half in half again to make the top fold. This make an easel shape card.

I matted and layered the patterned papers and toppers onto black card and then used double sided sticky tape to attach the layers onto the white card.

I used foam pads to attach the toppers to the top fold of the card. When doing this you need to make sure that when you angle the toppers that the card will still fit into the envelope.

When making this design of card you need to have a stopper on the bottom layer of the card to make sure the top fold is able to stand. For this design I have used one of the matching borders and a couple of large clear gems.

The bows and letters are also from the dvd rom and add the perfect finishing touch to this card.
