Bradford demo - Mr Mister

the following cards were made using the Mr Mister A4 diecut decoupage set

the card above was made using the template on page 62 of the new Creativity magazine No 58,
to slightly differ mine I punched various circles out of the harlequin paper instead of adding punched circles, "simply the best" was diecut using the new A5 "Dad" dies

the card above is a DL card made using 3 of the smaller toppers, the crossword papers and some orange card from the textured Papermania cardstock, then inside this card ...

I die cut "Dad" from the harlequin paper and "you're the greatest" from black mirri card using the A5 "Dad" words die set

this next card is made using the free gifts with issue 58 of 'Creativity'. I stamped the rosette on red striped paper, the greeting on black and grey harlequin paper, and 'best dad' onto kraft card, put backing paper on my card, a border strip down the right hand side, a topper with a small crossword topper to the right and the rosette to the left, then I cut out the letters 'best dad' and mounted on foam pads and placed bottom left of the card.

the above card was made using an 'Anita's' foiled decoupage sheet. I placed backing paper on the card, ran a piece of kraft card through the new 'morrocan' embossing folder and placed it to the left hand side of my card, then put the topper to the right, I stamped 'dad' using the free gift with the magazine cut out and foam padded onto the bottom right of the card

this is a star card - thought it would be a change, the words have been diecut in black mirri using the 'dad' A5 word die set, then various toppers from the ultimate diecut pack were used to decorate inside, and some brown [very manly I thought] gingham ribbon to tie it with.

this is how it looks when opened out and the details of how to make this are below.

you need 3 pieces of black card 8" x 4" and 4 in blue, also 8" x 4" cut one of the blue ones in half, and fold all the other pieces in half. Stick these folded pieces back to back to form the book shape, then take a long piece of ribbon and adhere centrally to the book from front round the spine to the back, then adhere the "4 x 4" pieces of blue card to cover this up. You now have your "book" to decorate how you wish - change the colours and decorations to anything for a personal gift for someone special.

this card was made from a 6 x 6 blank that was run through the new large spots embossing folder, a strip of orange card was placed at the left hand side of the card, and 2 borders adhered to it. A large decoupaged image was then placed on the card, a tag put across the top right and a winner's cup cut out and put bottom right, then I punched 5 stars from the decoupage sheet with a small round punch and placed on foam pads running down the left of my card
