Happy birthday Dad

Today is my fathers birthday and I really wanted to share the gorgeous card and coordinating jar of liquorice allsorts I made for him with my readers.

I took a regular pasta jar and using my circle dies and punches cut firstly a cardstock circle layered with another circle of DSP.  I used the now retired elegant soiree which I really love and just happened to have a little scrap floating around.    I glued these to the lid, covered with a layer of crystal effects and left to dry overnight.    Once that was all done I layered in the sweets and then finished the jar off with a double bow of crumb cake seam binding.    I just love how easy it is to take simple things and turn them into something spectacular.

Hope you enjoy looking.

Take one design

And mix it up.     I came across this card by Georgeann Manning somewhere in my websurfing and of course as all good crafters do pinned it to my cardspiration board on Pinterest.   Because I am busy getting ready for a few craft fairs I needed to add to my current stock and it really is smart to be cutting several of the same basic design at once.       Hope you like my take on Georgeann's cards.  Sorry the photography isn't the best, usually hubby helps but I wanted to get these all snapped and then packaged up.

Funky kids cards

Well at least I think so.

I have two markets coming up this weekend.   The first at Lindale Farm in Kapiti Coast on Saturday and the second on Sunday is a brand new Underground Market at the Dowse Art Museum in Lower Hutt.    I am really looking forward to these markets but at the same time needed to add to my collection of cards on hand.      I absolutely love the Big Top Birthday DSP, especially great for cards for the young at heart.    Hope you like the selection of cards I made today, would love to hear your feedback as to which ones are your favourites.
