Gardening Newspaper Card

I was asked to make a gardening newspaper style card just before Christmas, for the partner of my good friend Ann, and this is what I came up with:

and Ted loved it!

I have to say that I really strugged to find some gardening embellishments for this card, possibly the wrong season to be looking, but in the end I had to pay 'Hobbycraft' prices to put on the card.

I love this style of card, and now I have mastered the layout, I really enjoy putting them together and producing a unique card every time I do one. At the same time I bought these embellishments Hobbycraft I saw some horse riding ones, so bought them to do another card like this for my niece in October, as she is studying Equine Management at University.

I have learnt a lesson with doing this style card and that is if I see embellishments that I think I may need I have to buy them there and then because when you go back to get them they are never there.

I'd like to enter this card into the Scrapbook Sisters Challenge - anything goes.


  1. Another great card Caroline and lovely to know that it was well received. I always struggle with male cards.

  2. Brilliant design and so versatile - especially for men. x

  3. Great card, glad ted liked it.

  4. This looks fantastic Caroline - I might do one for my dad like this for Father's Day.
