Custom handmade birthday card | Card featuring Bunnies and fishes

I custom made this cheerful card for someone who wanted a birthday card with the following features: birthday theme – some remembrance of Easter – fishes to remember April the first – happiness.personalized bunny card _ handmade by Crealotte Design

For happiness, I started with the yellow colour. Then I added a punchart bunny. As bunnies and fishes aren’t really often found together, I made a seaside scene with fishes in the water. The bunny could be added on the grass and I finished it of with a birthday sentiment.

I love to make custom orders which allow to completely personalise the card to the recipient! What better gift than a well thought one?

A loving owl for Valentine

Valentine is coming, so what better than to produce cards especially made for the one we love? This card is perfect both for your valentine boy/girl, but also for that special friend, your mom or dad.

As you can see, I made a window in the black cardstock base, where I put a calypso coral piece of cardstock behind. In between, I arranged a couple of paper strips which I found in my stock. I finished by adding a little owl on a popped circle in the corner of my card.

Valentine card – loads of love

Oh yes, it’s that time again. New year just passed and yet we have another celebration. Valentine is coming, so don’t forget your loved ones! Ask Crealotte to create a special card for him or her. Show your loved one that you think about him or her all the time…

Valentine card - Loads of love by Crealotte DesignThis is a card for which I made a custom embossing folder. I did not have any embossing folder with hearts on it, so I decided to make one out of cardboard. I like the feeling of being able to create whatever I want with just my hands, glue and paper (and a couple of tools of course…). Once the embossing folder was made, the rest of the card came quickly. I colored the truck with my copics markers and used one of my border punches to add a delicate touch.

So, I am off again, don’t forget to order your cards and reserve a dinner table in time for Valentine!

Happy new year!!!

Happy New Year everyone!

Crealotte wishes you a Happy new year 2015

May this new year be full of happy moments with your family and friends. Don’t forget to be crafty too!!!



Merry Christmas doctor!


Today I have for you, a card made specially for a doctor. We often forget that many of them or on duty during Christmas, let’s have a special thought for them!IMG_8771This card came together quiet quickly. I used some Christmas themed DSP which I found in my stash, together with this Doctor image. I coloured it in with my copics (Oh I love those markers!!!). Hope you like today’s card… Have a nice Christmas preparation time!

Christmas pokket card: perfect as gift card holder

In the rush for Christmas? Still some last presents to get? Or worse, some ideas to find?! Do you know the feeling of not knowing what to give? Why not think about a gift card for Macy’s or any other big store? … You don’t like to give something so a-personal? … Me neither, so I propose you just put your gift in a handmade gift card holder!

This card holder has some space to write a personal message on the inside and has a pocket to put your gift card or a bit of money. Once closed, the card is a nice present to give to anyone you like!

Wedding card – Wedding rings with all the bling…

Wedding card - wedding wishes - handmade card by Crealotte Design


Today, I have another wedding card for you. This one was intended for a couple of friends whom just entered the love boat together. This card had to come quickly as I was (as always) a little late and I didn’t have much time left before the wedding. Although I made it very quickly, I like the result. The vellum creates this soft look and I made these two rings out of glitter paper and some pearls. Wedding card - wedding wishes by Crealotte DesignI got the stamp on eBay, so I can’t tell you from which company it is, sorry… I finalized the card by adding a pierced square around the main panel, I believe this adds to the sophisticated look.

Hope you liked it!

Minion card – Despicable me themed card

OK, this is gonna be a short post, but I thought that this little minion just talks for himself… Don’t you hear him giggling?

I am off to do some more making… See ya!!


ssss one year already! – Serpent card

Eloha! I am back again with this card I made for the first birthday of Guillaume. He turned one and is born in the year of the Chinese serpent. It was my task to get all this info in one card. I found this serpent image and adapted it using inkscape. That’s a wonderful computer program, perfect to make and adapt drawings. And it is free! ssss one year already! - Serpent card - By Crealotte DesignI printed and colored the image using my Copics markers. I didn’t have the exact same colors as the cardstock, but I like that the green kind of pops out. For the text I used a Disney font. The card is pretty simple, so I decided to put the picture in a recessed window in order to create some volume. I like how it turned out! Hope you like it too… Any questions? Shoot and I’ll be happy to answer!
