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.

Beautiful Gilded Birds!!

I bought this Kanban Black Gilded Frames sheet sort of by accident. I wanted some other things and needed to make up the order to a certain amount, so chucked this and the Gilded Bird sheet into my basket. Wasn't that bothered about it at the time - but when I was looking for something different for a birthday card for my Mum, I was strangely drawn to it.

I teamed it with a piece of paper from an old Kanban metallic card and paper kit - I cut the section here with the dangling hearts!! A piece of gold ribbon wrapped around the bottom provided an ideal place for the sentiment! All of this was mounted onto a gold mirror scalloped square, then onto a Craftwork Cards (almost) 6" cream scalloped card blank. Simple, elegant and not too fussy!!



  1. Gorgeous card, Carole. I bet your Mum was thrilled with it :-)
