Hi everyone! Here I am back with a confirmand card using the lovely Summer Crush papers. With doilies and a straw.

It is Confirmand-time here in Strandebarm now. And here comes one of the cards I have made. I just love the images in the Summer Crush collection. And this is just so beautiful and dreamy. And a perfect match to the papers.

I have cut out the “Konfirmant” text with a die from Papirdesign using the Maja dotted paper.

The flowers are from Petaloo and Wild Orchid Crafts. I have places sissal grass behind them. And some cheese cloth behind the image.


And here is the back of the lollipop, to write a greeting on.

Here is the list of papers used:

Here comes a Confirmand card I made to my friends son. And I have used papers and image from the Summer Crush collection for this one. I think the papers have really sharp and cool colours, which fits sporty young people 🙂 It is my son (three years) who is holding the card on the photo above.


Here comes some more pictures of the lollipop card:


The lollipop cards ar fun to make, and they are faster to make than my ordinary cards. Here comes a closeup.


Tags from Magnolia with texts from Stempelglede.


The text #konfirmant is written on my computer and printed out. I have used my sewing machine and sewed the paper edges. They are also inked with Distress ink – reinkers.

Hi there! How are you? Have you seen the new edition of the Sofiero papers? They even comes with monocromes papers. For my card I have used this gorgeous collection.


I have coloured up Tilda (Magnolia) here with some yellow/greenish colours. As I wanted the paper bag to have a fresh, springlike touch. The Sofiero papers are perfect for any romantic Spring card.


The clipboard frame around the image is from Wycinanka, called Apple bloss. I have put it up on 3D foam.


For the text I have used gold embossing, and it is from Stempelglede “Dear Confirmand”. I have fastened it to a paperstraw.


Here is a closer look.


On the left side I have put some lovely Ephemera cards, which is cut out.


Here is a list of the papers used:

Hi there! Its me again with a couple of lollipop cards. I am so enjoying making them, and the lovely papers from the Summer Crush collection is perfect for fun confirmand cards. I love the relaxing look they have.


The main image I  have used is from a sheet called Snapshots.  They are great for any occation.


On the back of the lollipop card I have put on a paper to write a greeting on. The text stamp is from Stempelglede.


Here you see the card laying from the side. The cute flowers are from WOC. And the bow is made with a DooHickey die from Magnolia. I have sewed all the papers, and inked the edges with Distress Ink pad-Walnut Stain. The post mark stamp is from Kort og Godt’s confirmand stamp collection. I have also added cheese cloth and doilies. The small texts are written on my computer and printed out on water colour paper, 200g.


Here is another lollipop card I have made, also using a photo from Snapshots.


The back is similar to the first one. The bow is made with a sizzix die.


Here are the cool papers I have used:

A couple of book cards for boys

Hello there! And thank you for visiting our blog today. I was asked to make two confirmand cards for boys by an old friend of mine. Her son and his best friend are confirmands this spring. I looked for inspiration, and found it on Hilde‘s instagram. I made myself a template for the vest. And the bow is made with a Sizzix die.


But as you can see, these are not some ordinary cards, they are book cards. Perfect to place small gifts or even money inside. I am in love with the new collection Vintage Romance, and of course I had to use the new papers on these cards aswell. The cards measures 16 x 11 x 2,5 cm.


The hashtag-texts are written on my computer and printed out.


I have glued on the buttons, and painted the papers and the buttons brifely with white gesso. All the papers edges are inked with Distress Ink-Walnut Stain and sewed. Under each pattern paper, I have bazzill-Vanilla. I like the thickness :)


Here are just some closeups of the cards. The bow is made with the cool paper called Honeymoon bs. So the paper is not only for weddings, also mainly boys and mens cards.


I really adore the patterns in the Maja Design papers, and the papers in the collections fits so well together.


The letters are cut out with dies from Sizzix. And I have added Crackle Accent onto them (then they get a more shabby 3D look).


For the inside I have made a pocket. and also put some hashtags and greetings inside of the folded sides. I have used watercolour paper 200g from Canson for the foldings.


A closeup:)


Here is the list of the papers I have used on my projects:
