brilliant bows

Take inspiration from your haberdashery drawers with these beautiful bow cards – they’re easier to make than you might think. Use your nesting oval and circle dies to cut different-sized shapes from contrasting patterned papers. Layer an oval onto a slightly larger oval, gently fold in half to create the bow loop shape, then secure with a staple or adhesive. Create seven more bow loops, then assemble together to create the bow, before adding to your base. The various ovals of the bow are great for using up your paper scraps. You can even use your scallop-edged or stitched dies to add extra interest to the layers. Here, Ruth has used the Sew Handmade collection from Crafter’s Companion to create three designs, pairing the patterned papers with linen and material-effect papers. Whichever design…

summer’s day

Although my stamping abilities are not the best, I do like to have a go at using the cover gifts that come with each issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft, and so this month I decided to make an easel card. To match the yellow card, I stamped the flowers in yellow and added green stems as a contrast. I attached a fancy white layer, four die-cut butterflies and some sparkly green gems to t finish. I used the sentiment ‘Thinking of You’ as the easel card c stopper. Linda L Cobb, Yeovil Hayley says: What a vibrant looking card Linda, the yellow and white theme is beautiful and reminds us of summer. Be the first to send us a photo of a card you’ve made using this month’s gift and you could win…

“I love hearing your crafting stories and seeing your wonderful cards, so please write in and share them with me!” Editor Just married I wanted to make a wedding card for my cousin’s daughter and I was looking for ideas. I wanted something a bit different to the usual wedding designs and found the perfect inspiration in issue 193 of Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine – a quirky and fun stamped camper van card complete with a veil and top hat. I made a few changes to my card: for the background I created a white heart die cut from patterned paper with a gold border, then I stamped a heart cloud and die cut a Mr & Mrs sentiment from gold card. Thank you Cardmaking & Papercraft for the ideal card and for…
