Rectangular scalloped topper

This is a slight variation on my previous scalloped topper. I have added ribbon, beads and the good old mulberry flowers and am quite pleased with the end result. Designed by me and cut on my trusty craft robo (what would I do without it!)

I shall put the template on the UKS site once I've tidied it up a bit.

Scalloped card

Just finished this card for a friend's birthday next month. It was a simple idea, but quite effective. Finished with seed beads and mulberry flowers - I was quite pleased with the finished item. I will put the template on the UKS site when I have tidied it up.

Just finished this card for my granddaughter in the hope that she will pass her driving test which she is to take shortly (she hasn't said exactly when!)

I spent a long time on this card, trying to get the outline of the car just right (it's supposed to be a Vauxhall Corsa). I wanted to make it girly so I cut the car in pink holographic sticky backed paper. The windows are sparkly wrapping paper which I can just about cut on the craft robo. The tyres are sticky backed velvet paper and the wheels are the sparkly wrapping paper. To make it more girly I put borders of the pink and silver on a 6 inch square card and then I designed a simple mat to put it all on. The text is done on an arc and cut in the pink and silver, the font being Hey Gorgeous. All in all I am quite pleased with the end result, although the photo doesn't really do it justice. Just hope she will pass after all this!! She will eventually and I shall have her card ready.
