CC May Challenge

Crafters Companion Challenge May 2014
The theme for this month is Masculine
My card uses the Camden Town male CD and the card kit.
The topper Companion was printed from the CD, and embossed across one side with the Embossalicious Stich in Time folder.
I added faux stitching around the edges. This was matted onto the Happy Birthday topper from the paper kit  ( think it had a London bus on it ) which I cut into so the topper could slide underneath.
The 8x8 base was made from printed Neenah card which I topped with a diagonally cut shaped card from the kit.
I finished the card with items from the kit and inserts from the CD.

Halcyon Days

The latest release from Crafters Companion is a CD called Halcyon Days
The CD is created around the beautiful fabric pictures sewn by Abigail Mill. The images evoke memories of holidays at the beach, pretty multi coloured beach huts and cream teas. Quintessentially British.
Crafters Companion designers have filled the CD with complimentary papers and embellishments.
This sample uses several sections of the CD.
Gatefold card folded around a Frame card.
The card base is one of the papers  printed onto Neenah Card. I printed it 3 times. It is a basic gatefold but has a 3cm spine down each side.
The front is decorated with borders from the CD and embellished with a 3D bow also printed from the CD. Brown Co'ordinations card provides the frames around the details.

Frame card mounted onto the inside of the gatefold card.
The sides are decorated with panels from the border section matted onto Co'ordinations card The bunting is from the embellishment section, the letters are rub ons  from my kit. The sentiment is also from the CD

The gatefold card was made by interlocking three pieces of Neenah printed with the design paper. This enabled me to create the insert section.
I printed 2 inserts one with a verse one blank.I used another of the image borders which I loved to complete the inside.

This is a really pretty CD and has lots of lovely images, below are some of my other samples created for the launch. Thanks for popping by.
Happy Crafting.
