Teenage card

This is a card I made ages ago, I really must update my blog more often, I never know what to do for male cards so when all else fails I bung the name on with an image. The challenge on MSE is for teenage cards so thought this card would do.

Birthday Cards

This is the birthday card I made for my sister's birthday, instructions are here
Papers are nitwits and the flower is a crealies die which I love

This is the card I made for my niece, although her mum only found the insert a few days after her birthday.

Christmas Card

This is my challenge card set over on MSE, no red or green, which was difficult for me as I tend to have all my papers in those colours so opted for a white theme. The card is prettier and more sparkly in real life

18th Birthday

This is the card I made for my Niece 18th Birthday, I was trying not to make it too girly but don't think I was very successful. The image has been coloured with distress inks I was trying to give it a softer feel. The 18 I die cut and coloured with German glass glitter and I added glitter to the flowers

I made an exploding box to go along with the card

Inside of box, I added butterflies as I thought it was a bit more grown up and made a cake in the middle. On top of the cake is an 18 letters but you can't see it from the rubbish angle I took the photo of.

Dad Train

This is the card I have made for my Dad's birthday, I could hardly forget as it is the same day as mine! He loves trains so I added some train papers

I made him a train, template was in a copy of the Magnolia magazine so I used that and will tie together with some string

Here is the front of the train, I used some craft wire and dipped it in modge podge then added glitter for the smoke!

Valentine card

This is the valentine card I made for my OH, same image as last year I am sure he won't remember. The papers are MME and I added a little charm to the heart

This is the inside of the card

Male Birthday Card and holiday photos

Warning photo heavy!

It is official I hate male cards (and my Mac but that's another story, can't get digital images to resize still trying though. As This was a card for a teenage boy I didn't think my girly magnolia or LOTV images were any good so chose the scrabble letters, I don't think it looks too bad.

Here is the inside of the card, I made a pocket on the side to put some money in for Birthday present
