March Makes !!!
Mother's Day CardsFor Mother's Day this year, I went elephant mad, using some really cute Crafter's Companion 'Humphrey's Corner' toppers, co-ordinating patterned papers and card, mirri card and gems. I used a tonic rose circle die to make a decorative layer to provide a base for the Humphrey's Corner topper. I printed an insert in co-ordinating colours with a Mother's Day sentiment. I didn't put a sentiment on the outside of the card in case the recipient wanted to keep the card after the event as a picture.
New Baby CardI also used the same concept for a New Baby Card. I layered mirri card, centura pearl then created a patterned paper in co-ordinating colours (with dummies and bottles create a pattern) then printed and cut with tonic die. I used the same printed paper to create an insert.
Treat Boxes For Special Mum's ....
My best friend hosted a lovely afternoon tea for friends and their mums ... my contribution to the afternoon was to make treat boxes with chocolates, which went down very well !!
I used Centura Pearl card and, using Serif Craft Artist 2, printed patterned box templates.
Using a score board I marked and folded the box templates. The boxes were stuck together with
red liner tape (for maximum strength)
Once the Boxes were constructed, I
made flowers using punched hearts
from the same card. I attached these
to the lid of the boxes using pinflair glue.
Then, the most important part, I put two wrapped chocolates in each box and secured
with a small piece of tape.
These are just some of the things I made in march, I hope you like them, I certainly had fun making them!
