Double Card

This is a Double Card - it has a smaller card attached to the larger front card on the inside of the card.

I think this would be a lovely gift to give with your photographs on the smaller card inside.

This is the front of the full size card.

This is the Double Card Opened revealing the smaller card inside.

Acetate Card

Acetate Butterfly Card

This is my Design Team Card for "Challenges 4 Everybody"

December 2013

The link to this challenge is at the bottom of this post.

This is my Acetate Card

This is easily achieved by measuring your Acetate Sheet to be 1.5 inches wider than your card front - then score 1/2 inch on each side.

Apply double sided tape on your score lines and apply to one side of your card front first making sure it sits neatly into your card side, then put the other side into your card front and glue firmly. As you have originally allowed 1.5 inches you will still have a .5 inch allowance so it's like a balloon effect on the front of your card - so you can easily put large flowers on your card - with this card though you would have to make a matching box as it will not fit in an envelope.

If you need anything clarified to make this card please ask in the comments section.

Hi to all my visitors and followers - to show my appreciation if you become one of my followers I will most certainly return the favor and join yours!

Digi Stamp: Butterfly was from Oak Pond Creations - see link below.

Embossing Folder: Craft Concepts - "Secret Garden".

"All About Me" DT Scrapbook Layout

This is my Design Team Layout for 
"The Scrapbooking Hut" December 2013

The theme for this layout is "All About Me"

It's not very often we tend to scrapbook about ourselves.
This was a real challenge for me as I immigrated from 
England in 1964 aged 5 years and have very little earlier
family photos as unfortunately most were destroyed on 
our voyage on "The Fair Star" in 1964 to Australia.

This particular layout was created with items I had in my own personal stash.

This particular photo was taken of myself aged 3 years
just before going on stage to do my ballet performance.

Please take the time to visit "The Scrapbooking Hut" site
and have a go at the challenge - December 2013.
