Have yourself a very Boofle Christmas :)

Well I went a bit mad with making Boofle cards so this is going to be a loooooooooooong post!!!

My favorite card is the little window box card below. It uses the Penguin stamp from this stamp set. I masked the penguin with a post it note and built a big pyramid of Penguins. The little penguin at the top has been stamped out and then I very cruelly cut off his arms and  stuck them back on in a different position so he looked like he was a little bit of a cheerleader :)
This card is made from two pieces of card the exact same size (a front and a back) To create the side frame pieces for this card I cut two pieces of card to the height of my card and 2" wide. I scored the pieces of card  down the length at ½, 1 and 1½.. Fold them in an accordion fold so you end up with 2 M shapes. They will get attached either side to both the front and the back pieces of the card. If you haven't done this type of card before just have a bit of a play and you wil be able to work it out...........promise :)

Cover the front piece of card in your patterned paper using a glue stick to ensure that the paper is stuck down solidly everywhere then cut out your aperture.  Now just stick it all together. Have a look at the photos and hopefully you can work it out. Any problems just give me a shout and I will do a quick tutorial on it, give it a try first though as you may surprise yourself :)
This next card is made by folding over a piece of acetate and again using our M fold (like in the card above) to join it together Have a look at the second picture below and you'll see how its done. I attach it all together and then fold over some paper punch a boarder into it and and attach it to the top fold of the acetate.I cut strips of paper to cover the joins back and front at the bottom of the card and attach them on and then just pop on my decoupage and embellishments.

 This is a little gift card holder. I took a square card and folded the front piece of the card in half back towards the spine. Then on the inside part of the flap (see second picture) I cut a slit large enough to hold the gift card but not too big as I need the gift card to fit in and stay snugly in there.I then seal up the front half  flap to the back half flap with double sided tape all around the edges. Pop an image on the front half flap making sure its large enough to hide the Gift Card when you insert it into the card.
 This is a penny slider card (I use 2cent coins to make this work). Some of you will know how to make this card and for those of you who don't I will be making up a tutorial shortly to show you how. I love how the penguin just runs from side to side doing a few little flips when it on its way :)
 This card is just using the Penguin decoupage ( any chance that by now you are realizing that I love penguins!) I used left over papers from other projects and cut them into strips. I then glued the strips diagonally onto a piece of card creating my own unique background paper. Taking this piece of card  I cut it into 3 sections to create the staggered background. A couple of snowflake embellishments and gems and of course the every fabby Irridecent Glitter glue and a cute little card is born.
 A couple of quick and simple cards made with papers, decoupage and an Xcut boarder punch.
This is a little bouncer card. It fold flat for posting and if I was going to post it I would use a doubled over piece of strong accetage to hold the top bouncer image rather then the wire.
 I love the little donkey in this card. Being the lazy little thing I am I stamped the donkey on grey, cream and red and just cut out the different sections in red and grey and layered them all up onto the one full printed cream colored image. Not a Promarker, Copic maker or coloring pencil was harmed in the making of this card :)
 This is a three layered card. I started with a large square card and decorated it.
 Next I used the same size card as above but just cut a bit off it on two sides to make it  fit neatly onto the card. Don't try to cut the bit off at the seriously I did that without thinking!!!!! Shouldn't work so late at night sometimes
