Took me quite a while to think of a fitting card for a biochemist. Also used the Sizzix Eclips for this card too. I created the evolution of man images in silhouette and then sent it to be cut! Finally worked out what setting is needed for my normal papers, need to suss out the settings for card next!
Hope you had a good one :) Couldn't post the picture until after the special day, didn't want spoilers! Why not order a personalised card for your Dad next year?
Finally getting to grips with the new Sizzix Eclips cutting machine. I created the circle of DIY tools in silhouette and then traced the image using the ecut software that comes with the machine. This means I can cut this out in the future again and again, with no scissors! Am all for making things easier :)

Set off in the snow this morning! Think we deserved a prize for motivation! Darn chilly but we managed almost 7 hours regardless. It was 0.5 degrees C when we packed up the car! Had a good day but hopefully we'll get some better weather when we return to Heart of the Country at Swinfen on March 30th. Before then though is a charity fair at Shifnal Methodist Church on Saturday 23rd March (afternoon only.) If you fancy popping in you'd be most welcome :)

How do we feel about re-using cigarette cards? Cigarette memorabilia is out of fashion but recycling ephemeral items seems on trend. So I've decided to use them, some are superbly illustrated works of art, I want to re-purpose them! What do you think?

...different theme. I really wish oriental themed cards sold, but they don't! So, I was really pleased to get a request for one! And an excuse to use this new fold again but with slightly different proportions. Really like this willow pattern set of images and coordinated papers. Think its another kanban set from the qvc shop.
Back to the kanban Great British papers! This is a new fold where you use a back-to-front smaller card inside a larger card with the front flap cut in half. Needs something to hold it flat in the envelope tho hence the addition of a ribbon. Glossy accented the numerals after I took the photo.

Picked up this fab stamp from the Hobbycraft sale. Making cards for a friend who orders a years cards all in one go!
Stamped image and coloured with copic ciao markers.
Selected four complimentary papers and outlined with black pen.
Layered papers, raising the top two with foam strips. This leaves enough room for the charm to sit smoothly when hanging from the eyelet.
Added eyelet tab and number tab to second layer of papers.
Printed name on third tab, using the pc, directly onto patterned paper. Attached to top layer.
Paper punched two borders to use either side.
