Q for Quarters

Hi crafty people!  How are you today? We went into Edinburgh last night to watch the fireworks that mark the end of the festival.  We headed into Inverleith Park with a blanket and cosy jumpers and had a lovely view of the castle.  I tried to take some pics of the fireworks but they were all rubbish but this was our view with the castle all lit up before it got fully dark.

Now that the festival is finished Christmas will be here in no time (eek sorry, but it always feels that way!) so today’s card is for the ABC Christmas Challenge – PQR.  Specifically it’s for the Q for quarters prompts.  I used some papers from a Craftwork Cards Christmas USB, plus some silver glitter paper and navy blue card.  The Let it Snow circle was from a Trimcraft set I believe.

Star fold cards

Hi there! I thought it was about time I shared a fancy fold card which I’ve been playing with recently.  I watched a couple of tutorials to get the basics and then had a play with some copier paper to get the measurements for a couple of sizes.  Please excuse my scrappy drawings here but I thought it might save someone some time if they wanted to make some of these cute cards.

The first one I used the smaller size, starting with a 21 cm square.  I used some Hobbycraft festive paper, a coordinating gem and added a sparkly sentiment in the middle using the Wow embossing powder in Calypso.

 

For the larger version I used a 30 cm square and some pretty floral paper from a Trimcraft pad.  I added a few rose gold butterflies and a rose gold sentiment inside.  I’m sure I will be able to use this card once the spring comes round!

I hope you like my star cards.  I’d love to see if you have a go at making these what you come up with.  Do you have a favourite fancy fold card to make?

Thanks again for stopping by my blog.
