Today I'm sharing with you the card that I made to give my wonderful Mum for Mother's Day.
I made this card a good few weeks ago as I've been trying to be more organised with making my cards in advance.
I saw this card fold design on Pinterest and I was pleasantly surprised at how straight forward it was to make!
One of the things that I love most about this card is that the main feature is hidden inside!
I used the following products to make this card
Blushing Bride & Whisper White carsdstock
Pop of Pink DSP
Large Letters Stamps & Framelits
Gold Foil Sheets
Blossom Builder Punch & Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set
Succulent Garden 3/8" Ribbon Combo pack
Crazy for You Stamp Set (Happy Mother's Day)
Thanks for reading, will post again soon!
It's been a very busy summer here for me, and I can't believe how quickly time has passed! I have had a wonderful summer full of days out, catching up with friends and family, celebrating birthdays (including mine!) and even a holiday to North Devon/Cornwall! Sadly I didn't achieve much crafting and my blog has become rather neglected!
Fingers crossed that now we are back into routine of school being back I will be able to find some time to craft!
Over the last 2 weeks I have held my regular monthly card class and repeat session so I am excited to share with you what we made....
This month I focussed on using the Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars Framelits bundle which is simply gorgeous and the options are endless from jars of flowers, wasps, fireflies, fish, paint pots, and anything else that you can fit in them!
This bundle really is excellent value for money - there are 37 stamps in the set and 17 framelits! It is proving to be one of our best sellers since the launch of this catalogue in June and you will see Pinterest flooded with ideas of how to make stunning projects and cards with this set.

I originally saw this card fold on Pinterest but the layout and the colour combination are all from my little brain....
The card base is made from a piece of A4 card scored along the long edge at 6" & 8". I have then cut the card at 5" wide, and abother strip of 1.5" wide.
I have layered the card using Flirty Flamingo cardstock and Whisper White which I have embossed using the Brick Wall embossing folder.
I have added some Glossy Accents to the water in the jam jar to give a wet-like finish.
Thanks for looking! Feel free to let me know your thoughts!
Hope you're having a good week so far! We found out yesterday we're expecting another little girl in november sk it's smiles all round at the manor especially for little Florence who has been adamant that she's having a sister right from the start!
Bringing you the final card from this month's card class...and the fancy fold instalment!
Each month i try to include a card that is folded slightly differently than the normal style. Sometimes they're reallt fancy and other times they're just slightly fancy!
Once the card has been folded it makes a 5" x 5" square card.
To create this style of card, rather than scoring in the middle of the card, score it at 2.5" from either end.
I have added some DSP to the side panels of the card from the Pop of Pink range.
For the cross-over section in the middle I have used the Layering Square Dies to create a frame effect and layered using the new Foam Adhesive Strips.
The sentiment comes from the Designer Tin of Cards set and the silver butterfly shapes are cut from the Sunshine Wishes Framelits Dies.
I liked this "fancy fold" card as it looks effective but is so easy to make and could be great for using up all those off-cuts of DSP we all keep!
Thay concludes our card class set for July. I hoped you liked the cardsm
Next month I will be doing a notecard and box set at the card class...dates to follow!
Have a great week!
