I really like trying new techniques, and birthday cards for my little cousins seem like the best opportunity to try fun, interactive pieces. This card has a coin attached to the back of the basketball (see my prototype above), so that it moves when you turn the card and goes into the hoop (see videos… Continue reading Basketball Card
'Twas the nightmare before Christmas when inside the house, the Grinch left a crumb too small for a mouse. Over the last few weeks I've been repainting Christmas decorations that I made (and my dad cut out) last year. The varnish that I used previously made the paint crack, so I had to sand them… Continue reading Christmas Decorations
This card was a bit of an experiment. After making the Greatest Showman card, I thought it would be fun to try other cards with holes in the centre. I had the idea of creating a layered mandala-inspired card, and, seeing as I needed to make a card for my uncle's birthday, I thought I'd… Continue reading Layered Mandala Card
My parents' wedding anniversary was last week, so I made cards for them to give to each other. I was considering not making cards for them, but then I had what I thought could be a really cool idea, and I figured this was a good opportunity to try it. As you can see from… Continue reading Matching Anniversary Cards
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

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.
Theses are cards that I made for some of my relatives recently. They are both my own original designs and handcut from paper using a scalpel. This rose card was for my aunt. 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.
