Three Funky Hand Cards





Here are three cards all made with papers printed on my computer from the 'It's Funky Too' CD. The first one is for a boy, using some great football paper. I cut the word boy out on my cricut, using the george cartridge, added some staples and buttons to jazz it up a little, and cut out three more footballs as accents, I covered these in diamond glaze.

The second one is made with a paper printed all over with 'fifty', I computer generated the sentiment and did lots of doodly sewing, added some primas and buttons, then cut out just the F from one of the words and mounted it on black then used a pop dot to raise it off the card.

The third one - love these colours - again uses prima paper flowers. I made a butterfly out of two paper blooms by cutting the fifth petal into antennae and adding some stickles and gems. This card is a bit of a departure from my usual style, but I love the way it turned out, mainly because of the fabulous and unusual colours of the papers.

These cards are going to be used as demo cards on a UK craft channel called Create and Craft, and are quite challenging to do, as you are showcasing the papers and can't use any stamped images other than generic sentiments, so it's sometimes a creative battle to come up with something that fits that brief.
