My youngest granddaughter has a birthday towards the end of July and I thought she might like this pretty dress card. The base card is made in three sections and I have cut it from Centura pearl 300 gsm. The mats I have cut from some lace patterned paper. I have the dress mat through the cuttlebug and also the top half of the dress, to give it a bit of texture. I was quite pleased with the result. The file is shared on the UKS site as usual.

I seem to have been fiddling about with this card for days, but I think it is finished now. The main card is cut from centura pearl and consists of 2 pieces of card 10 x 5 glued together to make a gatefold, I have cut the mauve mats from some pearlised 120 gsm paper which cut really well. The inner mat has a ribbon trim which gives it a bit of texture.- on reflection I should have embossed the mauve mat behind the central mat which would have given it more texture. A few beads finish it off. I haven't finished with this idea yet, but I shall post the template on uks once I have tidied up my working file.

My brother in law has his 80th birthday this month and as he was an engineer I thought he might like a few cogs and wheels! This is a shadow box card - the mats are cut in mirri paper and the light has caught it - I find it's well nigh impossible to photograph mirri card/paper without the light catching it somewhere. It is quite effective and I was pleased with the end result. Again the template will be posted on the UK Scrappers site.
