Snow globe card

I had to make a snow globe card for a swap and this is what I came up with.  The snow globe is a gsd file I cut with my craft robo i put acetate over the whole the tree is a stamped image which I embossed in gold the snowman is a sizzlits die.

-Slice-form squirrel

Another slice-form this time a red squirrel another gsd file I got from for my Craft robo, some of these files come in a PDF file so you can cut them by hand but seems like to much work for me.

Slice-form Turlte

Here is the slice-form turtle I made for Sienna to go with her Never ending card. I cut him out using a gsd file I brought from for my Craft robo.

Neverending Card for Sienna

This is a never ending it looks complicated but very easy to make using 4 pieces of card 6in x 3in  and some folds. I found hardest part of this card is decoration. Although in this case it was easy, I made this card for a friends granddaughter who's Turtle Tiny died. I decorated each set of pages in pink as it is 1 of her favorite colours I added some liquid pearl here and there for bling some turtle 3d images and some stickers. I also made her a slice-form turtle to go with the card.

Christmas Owls

Here are 2 Christmas cards I made with the little owls I punched out the first 2 I used the Santa hat cut down to make the elves green hat to match their coats, the tree is a Penny black stamp which is stamped on white card and then mounted on green card I added some green liquid pearls over the tree. The Santa Owls are done in the same way only left the Santa hat intact used red liquid pearls and mounted the white card on red card.
