Hello and welcome...
Here is today's card, a working and refillable candy machine
I made this especially for my great-niece's 8th birthday
  • with the working candy machine die set I die cut the front of the machine in a pale glittered pink card (my niece is a very girly girl :)) and backed it with white card stock
  • I cut a piece of pale pink A4 card stock in half for the front and back of the machine
  • without using the outer cutting die I placed only the candy machine die onto the pale pink card and die cut it
  • I then embossed it to add texture
  • this was then adhered to one of the pre-cut foam cores, you need two to make this machine, the second one goes onto the back of the machine
As this is a detailed procedure to make, but well worth it at the end, I'm stopping here with further instructions as  I am hoping to make a video tutorial where you will be able to see this first hand
In the meantime...
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, I hope my designs have given a little inspiration. I read all your comments and really appreciate you leaving me a message.
