Sizzix Birthday Cards

Yes, that is a Yankee Candle in the photo! I often have candles burning when I'm crafting and I have lots of them around the house. I've even done a scrapbook page on Yankee Candles.....but back to the cards.....
I have a Cuttlebug machine which can take dies from other manufacturers, like this flower die from Sizzix. I thought I would try something with white flowers on white card. The corners of the cards have been rounded using my newest 'toy', the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper and the ribbons are from some rolls I bought in Brighton just the other day.
My husband says these cards are too modern and look like I 'just stuck a piece of flowery paper on a card.' Oh well, I can't please everyone all of the time! (and some people none of the time it seems!).

At least I'm happy with the results of my crafting afternoon - and I managed to use up five sheets of white card in the process! I think I might try this technique again but with a butterfly punch instead of the die this time.
Don't forget I have a Sizzix Giveaway to help me use up the excess of white card I find myself with! Take a look at  http://cupboardcrafter.blogspot.com/2009/08/sissix-giveaway.html


  1. I love these cards ..stylish, elegant and beautifully executed ...what do men know .

  2. Don't you hate it when you ask them to tell you what they think and 'be honest' and then they are brutal? Mines the same :P Especially with my cards - I personally love yours and they would be brilliant for weddings and christenings too.

  3. Moden they be!!! lovely they are!!! make some more I would :)

  4. Love these cards, this relief effect is very popular..and very elegant. Not my speciality - I don't know when to stop and end up trying to add clever chalk shading and spoil the look. The white on white is a good thing, no matter what he says!!
    Have been walking around your challenge idea. Don't get excited - am still walking...white in 12 x 12 is terribly..well, blank, isn't it!!
