This was made for my grandson for Christmas. I used two cards and cut a hole in one of them, then put some background paper behind it. Then I put a Santa dangling in the middle. The reindeer I made in PSP. It was made so that when he opened the card the middle popped out.
I am terrible at explaining things!
Its the first one I have made like this, and no, it didn't go right the first time!!!! :(

That is super Liz.
My goodness you are getting a dab hand at this sort of thing aren't you :?:
They are brilliant what I have seen that you can make.

Emm, I am sort of back with PSP!!!

I now have PSP9, and where as I knew where everything was on PSP7, with 9 its like having to learn it all over again.

The trouble is I still have PSP7 installed and when I get stuck on PSP9 I go back to PSP7!

Think I shall have to uninstall PSP7 or I shall never learn any more!

I don't use it a lot for my cards though, just the odd thing now and again.

Thought I would show you what I have been up to this afternoon.
The builders are knocking my bathroom about and I needed something to take my mind off the noise.
There are five layers, all embossed and then glitter added.
I used Mulberry paper behind.

Yes Monsy, lovely colour isn't it?

How about this one for a man? You can see how easy it is to make, just look at it carefully and you will see how its done. Just a cut in the middle of the front card and press them back to make the collar.
The tie can be cut out of any scrap of paper.

OOOOOH yes, I can see how you did that! Do you do the writing yourself, or are they pre-printed or is there a stamp thingie?

No Monsy, I use Peel Offs.

Things like Happy Birthday, Best Wishes, Congratulations, all those sort of things are printed on a sheet that is sticky at the back.

You just peel off the one you want and stick it on the card.

Very easy but very effective.

Gosh, is it really over four years since I posted this!!!

Sorry I haven't been around, and yes, I am still making cards. I have just finished making my Christmas cards so am having a rest at the moment.

If you want to have a look here http://marionsmadmoments.blogspot.com/ this is my blog of a few of the ones I have made.
