Now that I’ve finished my MSc (still waiting for the results) I am finally able to get going with all of my crafts again. This week I have mostly been testing out my laser cutter, and trying to create laser-cut designs for cards.
So far I’ve made a pop-up sleigh, aeroplane, butterfly, present, and moving-house designs (pics to follow).
But my fave so far is the filigree Christmas tree, cut from ‘mirri card’ (which is shiny silver on one side):
I think I’m going to put some on ebay. Shame I can’t put them on etsy, as they aren’t handmade. Even though it took me days to design and tweak them. In fact, I was working on them for so long that I got a bit sick of them – but then when I showed one to my friend Joy, she put it against a dark blue background and it instantly looked lovely.
Here are some more pics:
