Kirstys invitations

Have I told you how much I struggle with doing multiple cards the same? Well I do ! And faced with doing 100 the same left me devoid of ideas!
Well after a trip to Trentham and Cheadle yesterday mum and I came up with the design below and half are done !

Ribbon edged Birthday Card

Another adaptation of a card at Crafty Urchins in Cheadle which gave me an excuse to have a play. An old style used many times before but with a slight twist adding the ribbon edge giving a nice finish

My Valentine

A trip to craft urchins in cheadle gave me the idea for these two cards, thanks Sue x

Magic valentine

A simple card with a magic touch, the insides change like the old magic wallets.
Fold a4 card in half then fold each side back on itself to form 4 even sections vertically
Slit the card from the centre of the first fold to the centre of the 3rd fold horizontally
Do the same between the top and this slit and the bottom and this slit.
Use contrasting paper landscape and cut two 7cm strips and lace them in and out of the slits of the main card
Have fun x
