Simply cards and Papercraft

Hi Everyone

As you know i work with some amazing ladies at All dressed up, designing cards and projects using the fabulous images drawn by Wendy Burns and we were lucky enough to be invited to make something to showcase some freebies Wendy was giving away free with the magazine.

The freebies are both digi images and papers, so it's worth picking up a copy of the magazine so get these.

Sadly the original publication was discontinued and another magazine picked up the article.  Sadly not all of our designs made it into the final page and they were all so stunning. the team worked so hard.

I was one of the lucky few who's card made it into print and into the magazine, so here's my card made using the wedding camper van.

I decided to make a wedding invitation.  I used 2 x 6 inch square cards and cut them diagonally on the front to form flaps.  These were decorated with the free papers, and a paper punched lace border added.  inside I cut another piece of card and printed the invitation wording onto it, punched a hole in the top and used twine .

I then coloured the image and fussy cut it out, adding it to band that went around the envelope, finishing it with two buttons for decoration.

I did take my own photos of the image on my phone, but due to a gremlin, they became corrupted when I tried to transfer them, however i think the magazines photography is far better than mine anyway!

Why not nip out to the newsagents now and pick up your copy to get hold of 9 images plus bonus backing papers, all for free.

Thanks for stopping by!
