Dutch Fold Card Tutorial using Carley Duff Signature Folk Art range


Today I managed to find time to edit the tutorial video for this Dutch fold card.  I found the measurements online a while back but still don't know why it's called a Dutch fold!  Sorry there is no photo, it seems to be one of those that has disappeared into the ether with a few others! 😏

Creative Blessings.  x

My festive cards and projects from 2019

Good Morning

Today I am sharing some of the makes and cards I produced for family and friends for the festive season last year.

I'm starting off with two cross stitch ones. I have recently got back into my cross stitch and this year my plan is to complete as many kits from my stash as possible.

I recently found out one of my friends is into Steampunk I love steampunk too, and even though I have known this lady for 10 years, I had no idea she liked steampunk, so this was the inspiration for my next card using a download from Debbi Moore.

The next one may seem a little odd, but the inspiration behind it has a special meaning between my friend and I. The digital stamp is from Imagine That.  I added some Sparkle pen on the bellies of the trout.

This one uses Dudley does Christmas stamp set from Hobby Art. This was for a friend who collects Donkey plushies.

The next two and half are made using kits from Hunkydory.  I say half because it combines the HD kit with a digital stamp but I think it works really well.

Using The Nutcracker Luxury Topper Set

This one uses the Stepping Into Christmas Designer Deco-Large  Festive Delivery

This uses the Festive Delivery kit and an digital image from Toni Arthurs

All the stamps are from Woodware, the main focal image is Vintage Deer

The next photos show the two sides of my mixed media tag made for a swap.

This card was made using the Christmas Tales by Dovecraft for my friend's little boy.

This shadow box and card were made for a swap, and mostly used Annamarie Designs products.

Finally, here are two tree decorations made using paper clay and Katy Sue Designs molds.

This steampunk style holly using cogs was for the same friend who received the steampunk card. 

Creative Blessings for 2020.
