Deco Template

I created this for the Papercraft Essentials designer of the year competition but was not one of the lucky winners. Now that I have set up my blog I don't feel the need to send my work to the magazines for approval as I am really happy posting my work here where people can drop by and have a look if they wish.
This gift box card was made using the template from Creative Craft Cabin.
I went to an all day workhshop which was run by the shop in Twyford last May and had a fabulous day, in one of the workshops we were shown how to use the template so I decided to buy it and now use if for my "special occasion cards".

The topiary tree is made from polystyrene balls skewered onto a chop stick (sounds painful!)and then die cut leaves pinned onto them. The flower panels are made from die cut circles glued together with a leaf die from the Cricut Solutions Home Accents cart. The front has been stamped with the Wisteria tapestry stamp set

    Well done for winning the harliquin rose stamps I would love to have them!

  3. Know what you mean about the comps even though I was lucky enough to be a runner up in said mag! I think perhaps it is a bit pot luck and not necessarily a snub to our art. It is nice that most people in blog world leave positive comments or at least are kind enough not to comment at all if they have a negative thought!

    Love your heart on the next post by the way, and why have you not entered the new Graphicus challenge then? You should do.

  4. Stupid me! It was Simply Cards & Papercraft!! But you get my drift?
