This started out as a birthday card, 8 x 8 inches, but it ended up "Thinking About You" instead.
I couldn't get a decent cut edge (think I'd done too many layers) and it started getting smaller and smaller...good job I'm not a hairdresser!
Papers are from Making Cards magazine and sentiment is a Waltzingmouse stamp.

I am fortunate to have some very talented ladies at my card making club. Now and again I
So far we've had two 'new' teachers, the others seem quite reluctant for some reason but I won't give up!
This week it was Jackie's turn and she showed us how to make this bag-box.
We used large scallop dies to make the sides (Spellbinders in my case, some used Go-Kreate with a smaller scallop) and then made a box for the inside.
The box is a fairly decent size, I might use mine for Easter eggs, the scalloped circles are about 6 inches to give some idea.
We made flowers out of layers of tissue paper to decorate. Mine should actually have a sentiment tag on as well but I was too busy talking to get as far as that.

Please excuse the messy edges to my poppies - I was rushing to get the card finished as a project for card club and I'm not a patient fussy-cutter at the best of times.
Card is 8 x 8 inches. I've stamped 'En Francais' stamp by Stampin' Up! and added white embossing powder. Next I used two different shades of Colour Cloud blending inks and smoothed them over the stamped images.
Sentiment stamp is by Woodware and poppy stamp set is by Heartfelt Creations

I've used a mix of Heartfelt Creations products here (All Glammed Up shoe stamp and die, Botanical Wings die and Botanical Rose stamps)
I stamped and embossed the shoe on a piece of black A4 and then scored it just inside the left-hand edge, before folding the card over. I then placed the die slightly over the fold line, this cuts a shoe-shaped card blank.
It's quite small so not a lot of room to write much inside but it's cute for a little thank-you note or similar.
The flowers stamp and die are genius - you can do six flowers at once, so the actual card is very very quick to make.
