Back to Basics and Beyond - An easy Easel card



Hi,
This fortnight at Back to Bascis,  our challenge is for an easy easel card.
I have made a simple easy card,  taking a card folding one side in half and adding another piece of card to the folded piece and therefore making a folded card that stands up.
I used an image from stash which is by Kanban, I matted it on red card and then gold card printed with Happy christmas,  added gold die cuts and a spray of poinsettia die cut with red gems in the middle and at the bottom a strip of the gold card white leaf die cuts and red ribbon and a couple of more red gems.


We would be delighted to see you at Back to Basics and beyond challenge blog,with your entry,  here is a link to the blog
Hope you have a nice day
                                        Hugs

CD Sunday Challenge - Winter Wonderland


Hi,
On this rather sad day of Remembrance we at CD Sunday have a new Challenge.  this fortnight its Wynn's turn to choose and she has gone for Winter wonderland.
For my card I used a Winter walk in the countryside CD by Creative Crafting.  I used the matching backing sheets which went with the image,  There is a silver piece of card which goes across the card in the middle,  the image was matted onto a piece of brown card to bring out the rabbits and a red ribbon down the side.  I also glittered the snow in the scene.

CD Sunday challenge now has a Facebook page for those who would like to enter the challenge and do not have a blog,   here is a link to the page

I hope you will visit the CD Sunday Challenge site, and remember if you want to enter the challenge you must use something from a CD no matter how small and let us know which CD you used.  Here is a link to CD Sunday Challenge blog  we would be pleased to see you.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend

Back to Basics and Beyond challenge - Sketch


 Hi,
Its time for another challenge at Back to Basics and Beyond challenge blog.   This fortnight we have a sketch as above.

For my card I used an image from the Pamela West CD by Joanna Sheen which I had left over,  I matted the image on blue card,  a strip of pale blue card and a backing paper from stash.  added two die cut flowers and a butterfly with blue gems and a sentiment           which a did on the computer.

This card is actually for Vernons nephew who has just brought his own house. he likes to have a home made card for christmas and his birthday.  so I hope he likes this card I made for him.
