This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Slideshows of all the cards I've uploaded to my blog can be found at the bottom of the page.

Yellow and Orange Anniversary Heart Tag

This card was based on a design in Creativity magazine (Issue 19) and uses the Papermania Sunshine Capsule Collection.

The card blank was cut into a tag shape. A circle of the orange lace paper from the Papermania Sunshine Capsule Collection paper pad was added over the edge of a tag shaped panel of the orange and yellow floral paisley paper and the excess trimmed away. A heart shape was cut from the yellow and orange medallion paper and attached over the two papers.

A length of the orange polka dot satin ribbon and some gold border peel-offs were added across the panel and three yellow faux gems were added to the ribbon.

A hole was punched at the top and an orange eyelet set and threaded with the orange ribbon. An orange paper flower was added over the edge of the heart and a yellow faux gem was added in the centre.

The letter panels were created by cutting rectangles from yellow linen card and stamped using the Studio G Hampton Art mini alphabet stamp set with the Versafine Vintage Sepia archival pigment ink and a line drawn around the edge with a fine liner. The letter panels were then added to the bottom of the tag, some flat and some 3D'd.
