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.
My eldest grandaughter is climbing onto the property ladder and will be completing on her first house this month at the age of 23. She has done incredibly well to achieve this and I know it has been a struggle for her - I am so proud of her. I thought to mark the occasion with this card. I'm still not sure if the bird cage is the right image for a new home card, although the door is open so the bird is not imprisoned.
The template as always will be on the UKS site as soon as I've tidied up my working file.

This is the card I have designed for my middle granddaughter's 18th birthday next month. It was a bit fiddly to assemble and I found the most difficult part to be sticking the fragile mats onto the offset mats, I used a wet glue in the end, but it was a bit fraught. Great care was needed to lift the mats from the carrier sheet but with a bit of patience it can be done! The template is shared on the UKS site as usual.
I saw a double diamond fold card on Create and Craft recently which was made from a single sheet of A4 - I have adapted the idea for cutting with the Cameo and this card is made in 3 sections glued together. My nephew has a birthday this month and I thought this would be an ideal card for him The template for the diamond fold is shared on UKS and I used the same template for an 18th birthday card for my granddaughter
This was a quickly designed card which I made in a big hurry. Basically I just made a circle, cut it in half and inset the 2 semicircles and made a path. I then put the text in and filled it up with scrolls and welded it all together and cut it and put it on a gatefold card. The mat inside is a simple lattice with happy birthday in the centre. I'm not particularly keen on this one, I don't think it is one of my better efforts so I haven't bothered putting the template on UKS.
