A2 Card Video ...

Hi Everybody,

What a fantastic night out we had last night with our families.  It was so good for us  to get together and we all enjoyed it.

After the meal we all came back to our house and ended the night playing  games with all the children.

The restaurant was very busy but the atmosphere was really welcoming and now we know why it is our favorite place.

So onto the card that is featured today...

 It is created using the A2 dies from Spellbinders and as promised it has been filmed.

The card that is produced is 4 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches ...  but I have given you an alternative idea to make a bigger card so that you are not restricted to just the small size.

I have also had several emails from my friends across the water who tell me that they cut  their Letter size in half to produce two cards and that is also called A2 size.

But this card is making the most of the A2 Spellbinders.  The sentiment is from the Sentimentals Range from Crafters Companion

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and they have been sparkled with fine glitter from Glitter Magic.

The  pearls are from Want2Scrap

The large card that I showed Griff holding from his daughter was NOT made by me .... but shop bought in the UK ... and given to him by hand NOT posted.

I hope you will enjoy the short  video  and have fun making  your own  smaller cards.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Lovely card Christina - the ribbon threader die looks as though it will be quite versatile. I went to the Glitter Magic website to order some glitter but was confused by the many different types. Do you use the iridescent or the holograph glitter? And if you use the iridescent, which colour do you buy? Love all your cards! x

  2. Beautiful cards as always Christina ...I do enjoy your videos ..they are always so well explained and a joy to watch. Thank you for taking the time to do them x

  3. Beautiful !! I have that Floral Ribbon Threader and always seem to overlook it when planning a card, but now that I see just how pretty it is on your card, I'm moving it to the top of the pile ! I'm looking forward to seeing what else you have up your sleeve for the US A2 sized cards.

  4. What a gorgeous card, Christina!! The threaded ribbon looks amazing!! I hope you had a fabulous Christmas my friend!! New year hugs :)

    Lovely cards, as always. Great suggestion on adding the A2 fronts to a larger card front, never thought of possibilities. I also would like to thank you for the information on the foam tape. Can't wait for your next A2 creations.

  6. GORGEOUS card Christina! Wow, love the colors you used and the weaving of the ribbon looks amazing! The flowers are beautiful! Another stunning card!
