Quick Cards Made Easy magazine issue 172 Bonus Papers

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? It is lovely and sunny here today and I have been helping at another felting workshop. I know enough about it now that I can actually help people. I will be helping at another workshop on Friday.

A little while back I responded to a request on Facebook for people to apply to be on the Readers's Design team for issue 172 of Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine. I was one of ten selected I printed off the papers, made a card and sent it in. I was thrilled to see my card in print on page 40 when I bought the magazine today.

The card has to be square and not measure more than 15cm x 15cm. I started with a Craft Card blank. I used coloured card that matched the papers to make the mats and layers. The dotty paper I used to make a snowflake border with Sue Wilson's Snowflake border die. 

There are various sentiments to use that come with the bonus papers. 

I just love the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp set from Stampin Up that comes with a matching punch. Now I have a stamping platform I stamped lots of these and I have used them on a few project. The bow is in the set too. Isn't great that depending where you put the bow they look like a boy or a girl. 

I have a Sizzix candy cane die. I inked the edges so they they showed up against the background. 

Here it is in all its glory in the magazine. 

I did like these paper a lot and the free gift is some pop-up box cards with cute characters I will definitely be making those. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Congratulations Jackie! How exciting to see your work appear in a magazine! Your card is fabulous, you've done an awesome job with the printed papers and the festive embellishments. I love the two little gingerbread people, and yep, it's cool that you can just change the position of the bow to make a little boy or a little girl. Love it!
