Fam­ily craft­ing!

My gor­geous grand­daugh­ter, Tay­lor, made these Christ­mas cards for her school friends. Her favourite part of mak­ing the cards was colour­ing in each snow­man’s scarf dif­fer­ently to give them their own per­son­al­i­ties! Tay­lor loves read­ing Quick Cards and com­ing up with new ideas! We are just fin­ish­ing off our crafty room to dis­play all our makes in­spired by your mag­a­zine! Lin Wil­liams, Shrop­shire

Hay­ley: What fun Chist­mas cards! Tay­lor is cer­tainly a tal­en­teed card maker, Lin!

A l long-term f fan

As you may know I’ve sub­scribed to your mag­a­zine for over eight years and ev­ery is­sue I’m shocked by how many in­spi­ra­tional ideas you pro­vide – I’ve learnt a great deal from your projects and tips! Is­sue 159 didn’t dis­ap­point me, and I thought the cover card was stun­ning. The em­bed­ded em­boss­ing tech­nique is some­thing I re­ally want to try.

This year I’ve not been well so haven’t been craft­ing as much, but here are some sim­ple Christ­mas cards I made – I hope you like them. Sharon No­ble, Fife

Hay­ley: It’s lovely to hear from a ded­i­cated Quick Cards fan!

A mag­i­cal make

I was lucky enough to re­ceive a uni­corn stamp and die set from Avery Elle for my birthday, which I couldn’t wait to try out. I used it to make this card, and also added puffy clouds and a stitched cir­cle die from Lawn Fawn. I coloured the im­ages and added some Stick­les around the sen­ti­ment, which also came with the set. I love uni­corns – they are so on trend right now! I plan to sell this card at a craft fair along with my hand­made gifts. I hope you like it. Mar­i­anne Fisher, Nor­wich

Hay­ley: Thanks for shar­ing your card, Mar­i­anne. We’re a bigg fan of uni­corns too!

Sailor boy

I wanted to make some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent for a friend’s daugh­ter, who was a new mum to a beau­ti­ful baby boy. I needed to make three cards for the same fam­ily, so was a lit­tle stuck for ideas at first. I loved this im­age of the sailor boy so de­cided to make him a ship to sail on. His par­ents were de­lighted to re­ceive the card! Gaynor Mid­dle­ton, Gwent

Hay­ley: Thanks for shar­ing this lovely card, Gaynor. The sailor boy im­age is re­ally cute – and mak­ing the card into a boat shape was a great idea!

Cake galore

I’m a com­plete novice when it comes to stamp­ing, but with these Brush­stroke Birthday stamps from My Fa­vorite Things and a cou­ple of Hob­by­craft stamp pads, I was able to cre­ate a card that re­ally ’popped’ for my y sis­ter’s birthday. She loved the card and, of course, we ate lots ofo cake to cel­e­brate her spe­cial day! ! Claire Gibbs, Lon­don

Hay­ley: What a fab birthday card to give to a food-lov­ing fam­ily mem­ber, Claire!
