On the move

Quick Cards Magazine - - Quick Fixes -

My sis­ter has just moved house, and I’d love to make her a card to cel­e­brate the news. Could you rec­om­mend any de­signs for me, please? Anita Pot­ter, Sh­effield

Julie: What a lovely idea, Anita. For the card, I took a 14.5cm square white card base. I mounted the card base with a 14cm square of pink striped pa­per from the Hol­i­day Bou­quet Too pa­per col­lec­tion from Nitwit Col­lec­tions. I then cut a 14cm square of kraft card and cut away the four cor­ners to cre­ate the oc­tag­o­nal shape. Us­ing a sewing ma­chine, I stitched a white bor­der around the kraft oc­tagon (you can use a white fine liner if you don’t have a sewing ma­chine). I stamped the ‘A New Ad­ven­ture’ stamp from Lili of the Val­ley on an 11cm die-cut cir­cle and coloured in the im­age. I stitched the stamped cir­cle to the kraft card oc­tagon and glued it to the pink pa­per. Next, I wrapped baker’s twine around the front flap, at­tach­ing a key charm and a sen­ti­ment stitched to a die-cut tag. Add pink and white die-cut flow­ers and pearls, to fin­ish.

Gold charms give a lux­ury touch to any card de­sign

Adding a row of stitch­ing to your card or pa­per will add ex­tra tex­ture to your de­sign
