Hi All,

I have this fun card posted over on the Papermilldirect blog showing how I made this Death Star birthday balloon card. Darth Vader is taking his Death Star balloon for a little walk ūüôā It is a very fun card for any Star Wars fans in your life. I was inspired by this card (and cut file) from¬†Awesome SVG’s, but I switched it up to work for me (and my slightly blunt blades!).

The instructions on how I built the layers up and broke down the Awesome SVG’s file are over on the Papermilldirect blog, so do go check it out.


Death Star Birthday Balloon

I have this fun card up over on the Papermilldirect blog showing a birthday card in a bold colour scheme. It is great to personalise cards to the recipients hobbies, which is what was done in this case, both with the cycling, and the colour scheme. As a card for a man I have left it quite simple and left the die cut image be the focal point. This makes it very bold and striking and brings all your attention onto it.

Do you enjoy making cards for me? If so what is your favourite approach to doing so? I would love to know!

Cycling On

Hi all,

I have this cute new baby card up on the Papermilldirect blog today,¬†showing how to mix up Papermilldirect card with patterned paper to make a new baby card. I didn’t have any baby girl papers, so I mixed up a feminine patterned paper and clever designs to pull this one off.

Stop by and have a look at the supply list, and I would love to know what you think in the meantime!

Baby Grow Card

This is one of those little fun mini cards that are fun to make. It is one of those cards that can be a card to send ‘just because’ which are always nice to get. There was no particular reason for this card, just that it was nicer than simply writing a note. The person getting it is bunny mad, so the die cut shape worked perfectly on it! I have a mini tutorial on how to create this over on the Papermilldirect blog, including a full list of supplies.

Bunny Card

Hi all,

Do you ever want a fun birthday card to give to someone with a bright colour scheme? Then this card is for you! By using a colour combination I don’t usually combine – orange and blue – with some coordinating¬† patterned paper this card ended up fun, bright and vibrant. Perfect for a child, or for someone who loves bright and vibrant colours! You can see more over on the Papermilldirect blog, or just check it out below.

This one is fun, bright and bold!

Colourful Birthday Fun

Hi All,

Buying a new home is always an exciting time and a little card to celebrate the move in is a nice gesture. Along with a bottle of bubbly or wine – whatever they drink! This card is up over on the Papermilldirect blog with full listing on products used. But I was going for a scandi vibe with a pop of colour.

The grey and white with the woodgrain works really well for this vibe! Hope you enjoyed this and congrats again to the recipients if you are reading this!
