My card for Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine Issue 158

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

We are back from our short break in Exeter. We had a lovely time the hotel was a bit remote but it did mean that is was very peaceful. It was so lovely to see all the changing colours on the trees.

I applied to Quick Cards Made Easy to be on the Readers Design Team for issue 158. I was sent the papers  in an email so that I could print them at home and I sent in my card. Unfortunately my card wasn't selected to be printed in the magazine this time. It was featured in a gallery on their Facebook page though. Sometimes when you send things in you worry about if they have got there or not.

The cards you make must be no bigger than 150 cm x 150 cm. I do like making square cards. The bonus papers are called Vintage Christmas. They can be found in the centre of the magazine.  

I used one of the papers to make a Poinsettia with my Tattered Poinsettia Sizzix Bigz die. I inked the edges and cut some out of green card to add some definition. 

The tag came with the bonus papers too. Altogether I used four of the papers. There was lots left over for me to make other cards. 

Enjoy the rest of your week. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
