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.

On the edge!!

One of my new favourite things is the collection of  Die'sire Fancy Edge'able dies. Have to admit they were a little shorter than I had envisaged when I got them - but I'm actually finding that they are really quite versatile dies. 
This birthday card is for my eldest stepdaughter - and uses the Butterfly Dreams Fancy Edge'able! The base card is made from Crafter's Companion A3 double sided Polka Dots and Gingham card, and I cut into each side of the A5 tent fold with the Edge'able die.
I then used more of this card with some Mink Centura Pearl, along with Papermill Teal card, to matt and layer across the front of the card. The shoes are cut with Tattered Lace High Heel Bella, layered onto a Die'sire Essentials Decorative Frame 1. I cut the name with Die'sire 1" Decorative Alphabet, and embellished with a Bebunni butterfly - and a little heart charm! 

I would like to enter this into:
