Celebrating Your Special Day with the Flowering Dogwood Collection.

Kia Ora and Welcome

Just a quick post to show a card that I made just before Easter.  This card was made for a friend’s mother for Mother’s Day using the beautiful Flowering Dogwood Collection from Heartfelt Creations.

Jackie was so thrilled with the card that she wrote this for me:

I absolutely love the design, quality of materials and exceptional workmanship Patrica used when creating a handmade card for my Mum. It was a pleasure to have someone turn my vague ideas into a beautiful piece of art my Mum proudly displays in her home. I know exactly where I am coming back to see when I need more handcrafted cards – Patrica at Gift Hutt!

I enjoy the challenge of making custom designs for customers.  And it always gives me pleasure when eyes light up when they see what I have made for them.  I have also had some recipients of my cards come and see me to say thank you and that the cards are always on display because they love the cards so much.  That means so much to me knowing that my artwork is being loved and appreciated.

I couldn’t do this without the gorgeous products from Heartfelt Creations and I am so grateful that I have their beautiful products to work with to bring light and love to people’s lives.

Handcrafted cards

Hi there

I have added some new photos of cards that I have just completed on my Crafty Creations page.  I have used a mix of different products to create 10 cards out of one sheet of die cut paper tole images.  Very economical to make a themed set of cards and would be great in a set as a gift.  This sheet is lovely with the metallic finish and looks great as a three dimensional embellishment.

Here is just one of them – check out the rest on my Crafty Creations page:

As you can see my template for an Easel card has been utilised to great effect here.

I hope you are all having a crafty Easter.
