Lighthouse papercut card

For my uncle's birthday I made a lighthouse papercut card. I backed the papecut with red paper which really highlights the details of the lighthouse.

I hope he likes it!

Royal Festival Hall papercut

Here's a papercut I did last year for my Uncle's birthday. The Royal Festival Hall has an iconic shape that makes it a great choice for a paper cut. I 'lit' the windows with some orange paper to help the building stand out (and because he really likes orange!).

Papercut wedding card 2

When I make cards to celebrate a wedding I like to try and incorporate some of the couple's wedding theme into my card. Steve and Chika had bunting on their wedding invite so I had to have bunting somewhere on the card! (Sorry about the picture but I was running late for the wedding!)

Pretty cardboard letters

Today we has my niece's dedication. It was a lovely day where we could give thanks to God for her. I couldn't miss a chance to make some decorations for the party afterwards. As she has a short name I thought some cardboard letters would be perfect!

I found some pretty wrapping paper in Waterstones and painted the edges and back in a lovely fuchsia colour. A very easy craft and it didn't take that long either!
