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!
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!
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!
