About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Downton Abbey - not long now!!

Afternoon!! Only a matter of hours until Downton Abbey series 6 arrives on our screens!! And just a little longer until Sara in on Create and Craft with the launch of the fantastic Downton Abbey papercrafting range.

Today I have a very masculine card to share with you. I have used a card companion for the image, combined with a couple of matching papers.
I scored one piece at 10cm, 20cm and 28cm, then attached the second piece to the 2cm flap at the end. I then trimmed the excess off the end of the second piece.
To the front I attached the Card Companion, and decorated with ribbon and buttons from the card companion sheet. I made these 3D by rolling them with a ball tool on the back of a mouse mat.
For the inside, I used the Downton Abbey Icons dies, alongside the smaller image from the card companion and a cameo from an embellishment sheet. I did a little teabag folding for the far edge of the card.
I used both tags from the card companion to make the sentiment inside.
Don't forget to tune in to Create and Craft at 8am tomorrow for the launch of this great range.
