Fancy Flap card

Heres another funky kind of card. I had to complete it using a beachy feel and include orange. Most of them covered that. It was quite fun making them, but I ran out of supplies and had to improvise. I would have used more embellishments if I had had them

Cards for the troops

I made a few simple cards for the troops this weekend. I usually make more but instead this time, Im donating some of my crafting things to help. The lovely ladies up in Queensland get together every other month and make cards for the troops but they need supplies so I thought Id add my bits to them this year.

Z fold cards

I made these cards for a swap. The criteria was just Z fold card. Ive seen this sort of card on the internet with the heart border and have always wanted to have a go. It is so easy to make too. I embossed the paper first and then added the hearts. I quite like the end result.
