Forever Greenery Double Z-fold Card

It’s been a while since I’ve made a double Z-fold card and it was a nice way to use up some of this gorgeous paper that is retiring soon. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out.

Turtle Card

I’m really upset that this suite is retiring too soon and wish I had bought it earlier, so I could have brought you more projects with it. For this card I didn’t want add too much or it would detract from the lovely paper and unfortunately the photo doesn’t show you the turtles and sequins in their sparkly glory 😀

Tip 1: As these are photopolymer stamps you should use a mat under your cardstock to get a clear impression

Tip 2: Put a little liquid glue onto your silicone mat and pick up the sequins with the putty part of the Take Your Pick Tool to dip them in the glue.

His Love

When my youngest two children were small we went to a big family church, but when my depression got really bad I stopped going. Just before the first lockdown I had started to feel better and went along to a nearer church which is much smaller as I wasn’t ready to go back to such a big church. I had only been there two months and had just joined the choir went lockdown started. However, during the lockdown the small church has kept in touch with me and I am in a different season of my life, the children rarely come to Church, so I have decided that the new church with older people is probably more me now. This card is to thank my old church for their love and support in the years that I was with them.

Monochrome Snail Card

This was a birthday card for my eldest son. For most people I would have added a bit of colour and taken the opportunity to get my Stampin’ Blends out, but this suited Xander much more. I couldn’t leave it completely plain, so added a little bling with the sparkly ribbon and the embellishments. `

Inside layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

I put some Tear & Tape on the card and peeled one end off and attached the ribbon to keep it straight

I am very upset that this set has not been carried over into the new annual catalogue as I think it is so cute. Loving the toadstool stamp.

Until next time, happy crafting
