Card Making

Last Thursday I attended a card making workshop run by Belinda Hellerle (Bee). Boy, what fun. I found it a great way to make use of all the left over scraps of paper from scrapping - and I certainly have plenty. Bee uses lots of inspirational quotes which were also very nice and positive to use.

This card was a bit tricky as you have to cut it and then refold one of the sections. Once you understood what needed to be done it was a breeze and I ended up helping a few of the ladies to grasp the concept. I love how it turned out and I will certainly be making some more of these. The inside of the card where you can see the cutting.

Another three fold card, simple but very effective and I really enjoyed making this one. You could certainly adapt the size and it looks quite smart even though there is not much to it.

This card used a transparency as the base and then the paper etc on top of it. A nice different idea. You just have to be careful that all your sticking is hidden by what you put in the inside of the card.

Lots of fun and full of inspiration.

Thanks for looking.

I've heard that Bee is a great cardmaker - now I can see why! Think you definitely need to give us a tutorial, especially for that first one!

Oh wow, these are stunning Michelle, and not surprise at all that the first one is done with your favourite colours. Now, I need to ask, do you sell the notes on the first card? would love to try my hand on this, as I have always admired this design, but have never been brave enough to give it a go. Love the beautiful quotes on it as well!!! Well done.
