Card Holder Tutorial by Merry

I've been waiting until after the Christmas rush to post this fab tutorial by Merry, following the tutorial are some of the cards she made to go in the folder and some of the cards made by other DT members in the lead up to Christmas.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all my DT members for their hard work at such a busy time of year and to wish them and you all a very peaceful and happy new year. We will be back in January with new designs and a brand new challenge blog - watch out for details coming soon!



Start with A4 sheet of card.

Turn up approx 4cm....allow enough room for cards.

Fold the folder in half and then cut a 'v' shape from the centre on the 4cm section.  Also cut a section (half a triangle shape) off each end of the fold up section.

Now punch four holes to thread the ribbon through.  Try to punch close to the edges to allow room for the cards to sit in the holder.

Thread the ribbon through.

To make the lace flower, cut a piece of lace approx 20cm long.  Then using needle and thread do a running stitch along the edge of the lace that you want as the centre.  

Pull the edge tightly to gather up into the flower shape and knot the ends.  I then added a medium sized retro flower punch and a bling flower to the centre.

I decorated the front of the folder with my lace flower and the Love Dove image from Cardmadfairy Creations.  I coloured the image with my watercolour pencils and added some Kindy Glitz for a bit of sparkle.  Stamped up the letters to spell out the word 'Cards'.  Mounted the image on card that I have run through my Swiss Dots embossing folder.  Finished the front by edging everything with black border stickers from Sticker Store.

The inside of the holder with finished cards using more of Cardmadfairy Creations digital images.

Now here are some of the cards Merry filler her folder with, followed some cards by other DT members

This one is from Sandra

And the next two are Sheila's

and finally another from Sandra

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope you will all be back to join us when we start our new challenge blog!

I'm always excited to see how flexible digi images can be and how a little creative thinking can offer new possibilities. The card below is a great example of how an everyday image can be used for an effective Christmas card - Sheila has done a fabulous job with Flowers 1 and I'm sure you'll agree she's made a gorgeous card for her Mum.

Fabulous new work from the Design Team

Well they've been a busy bunch over the last few days - possibly a result of all the
wintry weather we've been experiencing recently -
so I thought I'd post a few of their samples this morning and add some more over the next few days.

We'll start with Merry who has been making loads of new cards (and has even fitted in a tutorial which I will share later in the week) before setting off from her home in Australia for an extended family vacation to Italy, Greece and Egypt - their first time in Europe - have a fantastic holiday Merry & family!

A new image


This card is the first one I have made with my latest image Holly Tree and I am going to enter it for the challenge at Scrapbook Sisters who are looking for projects featuring a Christmas tree.
The sentiment is also a new image available now on the sidebar.

A little break from Christmas

I have been seeing hardly anything but Christmas cards for the past few weeks  and it's nice to have a little break from that and to show a couple of Design Team samples using other images.

First up, here is a sweet card from Tracey using April who actually works quite well as a wintry image don't you think?

Next here's a fab card wallet project from Merry who has promised to do a little tutorial for this as soon as she has enough time, looking forward to that. She has used the Poppies image beautifully!

Finally for today a male card, Carol Ann has used Joey to make this great easel card for her
nephew's birthday next week.

Hope these inspire you to take a break from the Christmas cards for a little while :o)
