Messy Rabbit Hopping Happy


This card has been made with A4 burgundy red pearl card as main card. Silver Mirri card for the matting and layering. The background paper is once again from the Joanna Sheen "Messy Rabbit "pad. Two sheets used, one for the background and one for the decoupage layer. The stamp used is Messy Rabbit Hopping Happy MR112. The rabbit has been stamped twice, once for the main layer and the second for the decoupage layer. It has been water coloured.

Messy Rabbit - Baggy Jumper


This card has been made with A4 pale blue card as main card - red card for the matting and layering. The background paper is from the Joanna Sheen "Messy Rabbit pad" which contains 40 sheets of assorted designs. A second sheet was used and cut to decoupage. The Rabbit was stamped twice, once for the main design and once for the decoupage layer. Using Messy Rabbit Baggy Jumper MR110. Then it was water coloured. The large house was stamped once using the Baggy Jumper Extra Bits MR11, again water coloured and the roof eves coloured in with

Glistening Snow Writer to make it look frosty. The lights were coloured in with Sakura glitter pens.

Fold Over Card


Backing paper and toppers are printed off of Joanna Sheen's CD-ROM Victorian Christmas. These were mounted on to gold Mirri card - burgundy red card used for the main card. The card was made by using 2 A4 sheets of card - or if you have tri fold A5 cards then you can use those.


Firstly I scored the one sheet of A4 card in half - this would be the half A4 score line - then take the second piece of card and score at the A4 gatefold line - and then again 2cm`s on from that to make a tab and then cut off the excess card at this point.Take the smaller of the 2 pieces place double sided tape on the top side of the tab - this will then be placed under the larger piece of card so you can`t see the join - this gives you the base of the card.


If you have A5 card with 3 panels then you can do this fold with joining the card - just take the last or first A5 panel and score it in half - what would be A4 gatefold line - this will give you the shape for the base of your card.
