I needed to make a card for my cousin, so I decided try something a bit different. The figure (inspired by Zendaya in The Greatest Showman) is hanging in the card and can be wound up, so that it spins (see video below). I wasn't certain that this was going to work when I started… Continue reading The Greatest Showman Birthday Card
This is a card that I made for my grandmother for her birthday. It is handcut from black paper. For this card, I added a shiny textured paper behind the cutout, which looks awesome in real life, but doesn't show up as well in photos. The design is quite simple, so I felt that adding… Continue reading Birthday Card
I recently made cards for Fathers' Day. They are my original designs and handcut from paper. I made this first one for my dad, who loves penguins. The second card was for my grandfather. The illusion of the cubes isn't a completely original idea, but I do feel that I made it my own by… Continue reading Penguins and Patterned Cards
Here are two cards that I made recently. They are handcut out of black paper with coloured paper glued behind the paper cut.

The colours are added beneath the cut black paper, and then I attached another black piece of paper to the inside, so… Continue reading Roses and Patterned Cards
I made this card for my grandfather's birthday. It is handcut out of black paper with the coloured paper glued behind the cutouts.
I made this card for both of my grandmothers for Mother's Day (sorry about the delay in posting it). It depicts a native Australian Red-capped Robin surrounded by Australian flowers. I’m thinking about making a series of cards similar to this. If you remember, I made a Fairywren card earlier this year that had a… Continue reading Red-capped Robin Card
This is an anniversary card that I made for my grandparents. It is my original design and was handcut out of paper. I found some paper at home to put behind the papercut (I think it originally was part of a flower arrangement). It's partially see-through (a bit like tissue paper but with a more… Continue reading Papercut Anniversary Card
This card is for my grandma whose birthday is next week. It depicts a native Australian fairywren surrounded by Australian flowers. In case you haven't noticed, I'm Australian. The images were handcut out of the black card and I added the colours to the back afterwards. I really love how this turned out, especially with… Continue reading Fairywren Card
I don't particularly like the idea of Valentine's Day. I believe it's just been made up by the card and flower industries, so they can make more money. You shouldn't need a reason to give your partner flowers, chocolates or take them on a date. However, when my brother asked me to make a card… Continue reading Valentine’s Day Card
