There’s something so magical and fun about a never ending card. It doesn’t matter how old you are, the excitement of wondering what’s coming next never goes away!
They are also a lot of fun to make and really quite addictive – once I started, I couldn’t seem to stop!
The first one (top left) was made using the very pretty Country Home Stamp Set and Country Lane DSP in an 8″ x 8″ size. My second card (top right) was made using the Tropical Chic Suite. And my final (bottom) card used the gorgeous Animal Outing Stamp Set and Animal Expedition DSP.
The matting and layering takes a bit more effort with so many layers, but the finish made it totally worthwhile. Once I got into into, it became a labor of love!
So pleased with the way they all turned out, and making these cards is a lot easier than you might think. Click on the link below to see my video tutorial for how I did it, and thanks so much for visiting today 😘 xx

I needed to put together a birthday card quickly and the Nature’s Poem DSP seemed like the perfect choice. Taking the colours from the DSP, I stayed with a mint macaron and Cajun Craze colour way. I would never have thought of combining these colours myself, but they actually work so well together! I coloured in the spots of my ribbon with a mint macaron blender pen, and set this behind a label cut using the Stitched Seasons framelits dies, from the gorgeous Blended Season bundle which is only available to buy until the end of this month!
I popped the label up on dimensionals, and stamped and die cut some mint macaron leaves, which I then adhered flat for some added interest. I also added some wink of Stella to the leaves for a little shimmer.
I love so many of the new products in the Annual Catalogue, it’s hard to pick a favourite, but Gallery Grunge and the Stitched All Around Bundle are Up there! You can make beautiful cards so quickly just using these sets, and I love how easy it is to create your own homemade DSP with Gallery Grunge as I have done here.
Grey is my favourite neutral colour and I’m a big fan of the new gray granite colour. It’s much warmer than smoky slate or basic grey, with almost a taupey undertone – it’s great having another option!
Love how this card turned out and it was so quick and easy to put together.
