Less is more challenge

The challenge this week from the ladies at Less is more is to make a shaped card so I thought that I would submit a 3D pop up card that we made at the last Valley Park Crop that I help organise.
Materials used:
Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Stampset: Triple Treat Flower
Punches: Fancy Flower, 5 Petal Flower, 1/2" Circle.
Inks: Pool Party, Real Red
Dazzling Diamonds

This could be adapted for all types of occasions, I recently made anothe one for my brother  in law's bithday and used the Nature Walk stamp which is ideal for masculine cards.
Our next Valley Park Crop  is on Saturday 9th June when the theme will be Party, party and we will be making a 3D project , a card and party accessories. If you live in Hampshire and would like to join us please email me on:margaret@margaretjones.net

Valley Park Crop

Hi Ladies
Yesterday Aly and I held another Craft Event at Valley Park Community Centre. The theme for the day was Spring and Aly demonstrated how to make a lovely pop up card (which I can't wait to have a go at ) and a mini scrapbook album and I demonstrated a Spring scrapbook page.
There was a lovely group of ladies and we had a really good time although my feet were really aching at the end of the day.






Our next event will be held on Saturday 9th June. If you would like to come or get more details please email me on margaret@margaretjones.net
