Valentine Is Upon Us

Well it's that time of the year again - cupid is lurking!
I have a selection of five cards showing different
styles of Tatty Ted cards.

DoCraft blue textured card as the base and 
another piece folded and with two pieces of
grey card cut with an Xcut die for front and
back hole punched and red ribbon tied
through. Each fold decorated as desired
in this case with Tatty Ted papers,
stickers, toppers and sentiments.
The folded section is glued onto the mat and layered
section of the main card.  One corner of the
mat and layer in turned over to show the double sided
paper which is held in place with a pearl brad.  A
second piece of paper is then cut and glued onto
the grey layer with a sticker heart front the Tatty Ted
range poking out of the corner section.  White
pen used to make faux stitching on the blue card to finish.
This card is featured in the projects section of the
Creativity Club on the DoCrafts website please
visit this section to get the step by step guide to making
this project.

This card is an A5 card kit.
BUT I have used the packaging on the inside of the card
with a die cut heart and ribbon being the only extras used.

Another card kit this time A4.
Again I have used the packaging the kit came in
for the inside of the card - Thifty Crafting!
This card is designed to look like an envelope which the
picture  does not really show well.
The flap  is a piece of white card shaped and covered
in backing paper and edged in red pen.  The
decoupage topper is backed onto black card. Two
backing papers adhered side by side on the base and black
pen used to simulate an envelope folds.  Strips of backing
paper twisted one end stuck behind topper.
