Is there cake

 This card for creative knockouts is this image macdoodle dog a image from Hetty Clare and it was to be lots of layers

I started off with a white base card the backing paper was from my stash I cut the paper a bit too small, and as we know there are no mistakes in card making, so I cut it in half and adhered to the cardI then got a strip of white card and a smaller strip of blue card embossed it with swiss dots. printed out the image cut the image out then cut two more cards a larger size, distress inked the edges, adhered the white strip first, then one of the squares,then the blue strip then the topper.Did the sentiments on the computer cut them out and adhered them to blue card then white card


 Halloween has only been observered here in NZ for a few Years so its not a card I need to make but... it is my image boo i can see you for my DT card at creative knockouts and the colours to use were black purple and orange 

I used a backing paper that had bats on it,adhered to black card. Printed out my image cut it out with the cuttle bug and cut a scallop, coloured it with copics,I then cut out the spider web adhered it to the card the put my topper on top I then added the bats and spider, one of the first die sets I bought, I then put a thin strip of double sided tape and sprinkled purple glitter on it. Then to make it a trick I made the card to open on the left side not the right

I like many others I am sure do not like making condolence cards. This is for a lovely man who was confined to a wheelchair after having a stroke many years ago and he will be missed by his family and friends I have done this card a little different

I started with a black base of 28 cm x 15 cm then cut the white card  26 cm x 14 size is irrelevant can be any size you want. I printed the sentiment onto the card before cutting.

I then cut the black cards spine 14 cm about 1/2 cm from the two top edges here you can see the tape lines

Here is two views inserting the card through the slit


Once I had the cards fitted I adhered the top and inside of card together so as to reinforce the whole card.
So then I decorated it  I made all the flowers and leaves with one of my dies, made the angel and then put ribbon around it


Am a bit late posting this DT card for creative knockouts and I used this lovely stamp from  LeAnn's    World  srocky and renae  

I have had this backing paper for forever never really had a stamp to go with it. I sized the paper to fit the base and cut  a square in it then cut a frame using the same die with a larger die.I printed off the image with the sentiment written under it then coloured the image with copics. added a butterfly to the corner
