Shadow Box Card

Today's card is from my Thursday cardmaking class and is an oriental shadow box card.
The template came from splitcoast stampers site which I have enlarged so it will now fit an A5 envelope.
The card looks a lot better in the flesh.

I used black card stock for the shadow box.
The cherry blossom was stamped with a Versamark ink pad and then I used pink/golg Pearl Ex.
All of the images were embossed with gold and coloured with the Pearl Ex watercolour pallet.
The moon was punched out of yellow card stock and then glittered.
Then we made paper beads for the side of the card.

My Swap Domino

Here is my domino for the swap, it did not scan very well but it looks better in real life.
I attached a bead to the top so it can be worn as a necklace.
Have a great day!

Father's Day Cards

I started teaching some card making classes in school to parents a couple of weeks ago, so I thought I would share what we made last week.
They came in for Father's Day for Adele & Jake to give to Kevin.
I kept it simple and only used printed paper, die cuts and peel offs!

Carl's Birthday Cards!

It was Carl's 23rd birthday a few weeks ago and here are two off the cards that I made for him.
He loves computer games and paint balling.
All of the background papers and 3d decoupage images were printed of a CD by Robert Addams called Boys & Children.

Sorry I have not posted anything this week as I have been poorly with some viral infection and not had the inclination to craft.
