A couple of cards

Here are a couple of cards I have made..just for something different. The first card is a kit from the Aimee Asher site.I don't tend to do these card kits very often as I feel I am cheating but occassionally I need a break from all that thinking lol!! I added my own touch by creating the stand from an offcut of Papermania scrapbook card, & I drew round a stand that a friend had sent me from a card. I added liquid pearls & stickles to the wings of the butterfly.To make the back I printed out another sheet & used the backing paper & butterfly. I added the ribbon & cut a circle of white paper which I just slotted behind the ribbon.
The other card I have made is using a decoupage sheet that I have made. The artwork is by Trina.I have used a Basic Grey backround. I used a layer of lilac card which I bugged using my swiss dots. I added the decoupage & added gems to the centres of the flowers. I also added gems to the corners. The ribbon is from my stash & I added a sticker to the centre of this. The flowers is made up from Papermania flowers & a Dovecraft jewelled charm. The sentiment is from the decoupage sheet.On the inside of the card I reduced the size of the decoupage & cut out the bottom layer. I added some more Basic Grey & created a pocket from the lilac card, which again I bugged using swiss dots. The tag was made using a rectangle of paper, & I attached the ribbon using a brad. Again the sentiment was from the sheet.
If you would like to purchase the sheet you can find it here . x Clare xx
