Okay, I've never watched Downton Abbey as I'm really not a fan of period dramas (except The Paradise, that was brilliant, but it got cancelled after just 2 series!). Anyway, having said that I love card making and when I got a sneaky peek at this range from Crafters Companion at their 10th Birthday party in August I just loved it, it is very grown up and elegant and there is so much there for men you should not be lost for a male card again - ever!
Having seen the samples on the screens now, I can honestly say my fellow teamies have done the most amazing work, and I'd like to think I've contributed a little bit to that, so without further ado, here are my little contributions which were created as step by step instructions which will appear at some point on the Crafters Companion website.
With this project I wanted to show how well the collection would work with things that you may already have from CC, such as the gift bag template, this is such a fabulous size and with everything on the CD you can coordinate your gift packaging, card and anything else you fancy! (I used the downstairs CD (2) for this one)
This twisted easel was done to show off one of the gorgeous male elements that are available on the CDs and also makes use of the Regency Swirls embossing folder that you may already have, bit of gilding wax and your away! (I used the upstairs CD (1) for this card).
Anyway, I hope you've been enjoying the Downton Abbey collection on Create and Craft over the past few days and that your CD's, dies and embossing folders are winging their way to you!
