Layered Orange Dragon Card

09/01/2019 11:50

  1. Cut out a piece of card to use as your background and apply the distress oxide ink. When dry stick to your card blank.
  2. Die cut the grass from a suitable coloured card and stick it along the bottom of your background card.
  3. Die cut the dragon twice, with a different colour of card each time.
  4. Stick the dragon in your selected colour to the card.
  5. Take the negative/pushed out pieces from the other coloured dragon's wings, tail and belly.
  6. Stick the "negatives" from the second dragon into the appropriate spaces on your dragon on the card.
  7. Finish off your card with a googly eye on the dragon and use a needle, pricker tool or similar to gently lift the scales slightly to give them a raised effect.

  1. Cut out your moon shapes (these can be fairly rough circles) and stick them onto the card
  2. Cut out a ledge shape from a piece of coloured card and stick it to the black card blank (if it overhangs don't worry, just trim it after sticking it on) This can also overlap one of the moons to create a layered effect if you like.
  3. Stamp your dragon onto the card, with the feet on the ledge and the body on the black background.
  4. Using one colour of the 3D Pearl Effect Paint Pen, colour in your dragon's body, avoiding the eye, belly, spikes and wings.
  5. Using another 3D Pearl Effect colour, colour in the belly (leaving a gap between each segment), the spikes and the wings.
  6. Using any colour of 3D Pearl Effect, place some drops to make stars.
  7. Finally stamp a sentiment into the bottom corner.

Fancy Fold Star Card

10/12/2018 11:50

  1. Cut some 6x6” card pieces sheet to make your stars.
  2. Fold your 6x6” piece in half and then half again to make score lines.
  3. Unfold your card and then fold the corners into the centre.
  4. Cut half way up the visible score lines from the outside edge, in the centre of each triangular folded piece.
  5. Fold away from the cuts to the corners, creating your star points.
  6. Repeat with a second piece of the same 6x6” card.
  7. Stick down the folds on the back of the stars using double sided tape or a similar adhesive.
  8. Stick your stars together, letting the points of the one at the back show through the gaps between the points in the one at the front, using double sided tape or your preferred adhesive.
  9. Cut out a snowglobe design from the paper pack. You can use “fussy cutting” to roughly cut it out and then tidy it up once you have it off of the pack. This will create your topper.
  10. Stick the topper on top of your stars in the centre.
  11. Cut out another 6x6” piece from the paper pack to use as your background. Trim the edges afterwards slightly to allow the card blank to show as a border.
  12. Stick your background piece to the white card blank.
  13. Stick your star to the background piece on your card, making sure that your topper is the right way up and that the star doesn’t overhang the bottom of the card (it can however overhang the sides or top if you would like).
  14. Find a suitable sentiment in the paper pack and cut it out to use as a final touch.
  15. Stick your sentiment to the card.
