Decoupage hedgehog with flowers

I used a country companions set to make the hedgehog with the flowers. I layered it up with sticky pads. I decided to use the shiny green background as I felt it went well with the hedgehog's boots and was a good contrast to the flowers. I added a flower onto the green at the bottom. I left a white border around the card so your eyes were brought into the middle of the card.

Decoupage rabbit easter card

I used a country companions decoupage set. I layered up the image using sticky pads. I used a prefolded card and stuck some yellow tissue paper in the background abd then stuck the image on top. I cut out some of the flowers that were spare and added them to the bottom left hand corner and added some butterflys to the top right hand side.

Decoupage superman card

I used a decoupage set I brought to make this card. I layered up each different part using sticky pads. I added  a sentiment and a strip of supermen at the bottom to finish it off. Adding a different sentiment can make this into a card for a different occasion.

Iris folding name card

I used the iris folding technique for this card. As the name was long I decided to do the card landscape.I drew the name on the inside of the front of the card missing out the letter a as I was going to stick this on the front . I then cut out the letters with a scalpel. I used the same wrapping paper for all the card. On two of the letters I stuck the wrapping paper behind. I then iris folded the other letters. I then stuck the cut out A's onto the front of the card using sticky pads. I cut out some stars from the wrapping paper I had been using and randomly stuck them on the card. To finsih it off I drew a border. I covered the inside of the front of the card with the same wrapping paper to hide the iris folding.

Decoupage hedgehog with hat on

I used a decoupage set from Country Companions layering up each piece with sticky pads. I then stuck it on some green paper and then stuck it on the card. I then added the sentiment that came with the pack. This card could be used for many occasions such as a "Birthday card", "Thank you card", "Get well card", "Thinking of you card" etc.

Competition entry for Cath Kidson magazine

The theme for the competition was "Buttons". I used one of the Cath Kidston patterns and cut it out . I stuck brown paper on the background and different coloured buttons on different flowers. I then added three coloured buttons to each corner of the frame. To stick the buttons down I used UHU glue.
