I saw an explosion card in an edition of Creativity magazine and decided to make it earlier in the year for my brother’s 40th birthday.
Since then I have made quite a few explosion cards and everybody seems to love them.
Here’s my latest makes:-
I found the pattern for this unicorn a while back in Craftseller magazine. I’ve finally got around to making it. It was actually a nice easy make and fairly quick until I got to the main which took up more yarn than I expected and was quite time consuming.
The finished article, and I may just be biased, is rather cute to say the least and she sold as soon as I posted to my facebook page – Dawn’s Handmade Cards & Gifts
I’ve been trying to make a Christmas card for each birthday card I make but it’s fallen by the wayside a little bit but I have managed to make a selection of Christmas cards. Most very easy to make, some a little bit more tricky.
Been very busy making cards, cards, and more cards. And a bit of crochet now and again.
Here’s another selection of my handy work. Can’t believe I’ve only been doing this since the New Year – feel like I’ve done so much and learnt so much. My creations have come on in leaps and bounds – when I look back at my first makes I can’t believe how basic they look.
Saw these on Pinterest so thought I’d give them a go. My Pokemon mad son has claimed the Pokeball one and will no doubt claim the other too given the chance.
Nice quick and easy to make (even for me, the slowest crocheter in the world).
I thought I’d share with you a few more of my recent card makes that I made for a friend’s daughters birthday.
Firstly I made a mobile phone card from her niece. She loves her technology and I spied a similar one on Pinterest. A really quick and easy make which can be totally personalised in favourite colours, name, age and whatever messages suit. Loved the end result.
Also on the order list was a sister card. As the young lady in question likes ice skating I liked this idea of using a snow globe shape. I used acetate to make a circle for the centre of the card and stuck a printed picture to it. To get the snow flakes I just used silver glitter glue. A bit fiddly in parts but it was worth it.
I saw this card in the Creativity magazine and used the free papers that came with the magazine.
I saw this card online and as my friend’s daughter is a bit of a shop-a-holic, I really wanted to give it a go. I love this card and I will definitely be making more in the future – again it’s one of those cards which can be customised to suit the recipients favourite colours.
Feel free to take a look at other cards and crochet items I have made on my Facebook page Dawn’s Handmade Cards and Gifts. If you like what you see please share with your friends and family.
I found this pattern in the Comic Relief Crafternoon magazine which I’d purchased earlier in the year. In the magazine they used floral designs but given that I have a stash of old Christmas cards I thought I’d put them to good use to make this quick and easy Christmas Tree decoration.
