Garden Delights

Hi everyone,

Thank you to all my new followers and the lovely comments you have left. It means alot that you like my cards.

Today, I thought I would share with you some of the cards I made using the Garden Delights CD rom by Cupcakecrafting. I love the colours and the characters on this Cd and hope you do too.

This is a 'peek-a-boo' card. I used an A4 piece of white cardstock, scored it and made it into a gatefold card. I matted and layered with backing papers from the Cd and also silver mirri. The shapes were cut out using the Lacy Labels cartridge and my Cricut machine. From the second picture, the front looks a bit plain, but there were embellishments on the right hand side of the card as you look at it, they are just out of view of the camera. (I'm no David Bailey!)
The next card is a theatre card. Again, I used the Lacy Labels cartridge (I do have others, honestly!!) and my Cricut machine. For this I used Centura pearl cardstock from Crafters Companion in a mid blue colour. Again, I matted and layered using backing paper from the CD and silver mirri from my stash. I used the corner embellishments from the CD and added a ribbon.
For this card, I used an 8x8 card, matted and layered using backing papers from the Cd and silver mirri (I like silver mirri, in case you hadn't guessed!). I added one of the sentiments and a flower from the Cd and a ladybird from my stash. I think I bought the ladybirds from 'Boyes' which is known as 'Harrods of the North' round here apparently! I made a bow from ribbon and twirled the long lengths and embellished it with a gem. (The flowers were to cover a happy accident and the ladybird to balance it out, I hope it works.)
Thank you for calling by. See you again soon, I hope.
Happy crafting
