They get better every time ,if you type decoupage into photobucket you will find a few you can download and print to practice ,the wife also buys them on-line and prints them on A4 photo paper i would shop around for photo paper thought as it can be expensive, we get a pack of 50 for ú5 at the local market.
If there was a tax on brains, i would get a rebate.

The black and red one Ray ?
Thats a style called hidden panel - it has two inside ;)
Its kewl to make but a swine to decorate as ya have to be careful not to glue/stick certain places or it won't fold  :gig:
I am enjoying making them and even had people asking to buy them :)
Got goodies and crafting stash coming out of my ear holes but I am loving it :D

Thanks Babs - was glad to find this is something I love and can do "Despite" health issues and medications that have meant cross-stitch has become a no-no  :-\  But card-making it actually something I can do even when  feel like hell on earth and that is good :)

I'm not surprised people want to buy them! You could clean up on Etsy!

Not really thought about selling them as really like the fact I have a hobby I can do and enjoy
and am a bit uneasy about the pressure of selling would take away some of the enjoyment :-\
But if I do think about selling at any point Etsy is a good idea :)

That makes sense to me because selling puts on an extra pressure but it must be good to know that people regard your work as being of that high a standard. Which it clearly is!

#21 looks quite complicated (but good). I love #19, especially the colours...   :yup:

Thankyou Babs  :flowers:

No.21 - has taken me 6hrs to learn the new fold and to make the card but it looks great now its finished :yup:

No.19 - the colour is slightly lighter than it is in real life - the backing paper is a slightly lilac colour and the rest is white and silver :)  Looks great in the daylight and shines ;)
