Colourful Desert Flower Note Card Set

   

Today's tutorial is a colourful note card set using the Flowering Dessert Stamp Set (148700) and the Crackle Paint Stamp Set (148752).

Of course we have Sale-a-bration running at the moment. For every £45 spent you can choose a free item from the Sale-a-bration range. I would recommend the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (149622), it is beautiful, and even better, it is FREE with a £45 purchase!
One side of the paper is in spectacular full colour and the other is black and white, so amazing for a variety of projects... just like this one.

What you will need:
Berry Burst Card Stock (144249) - C6 top folding card base                                                         
Whisper White Card Stock (106549) - 4 1/8" x 2 3/4"
                                                             - Piece big enough for the stamped image.
Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (149622) - 3 1/8" x 4 1/2"

Simple Vintage Christmas Card


The Autumn/Winter catalogue is still available up till the end of December. If you do not have a catalogue and would like one, please do drop me a message. I will be happy to send one out to you - FREE.You can also find a link to the catalogue on the right hand side of my blog.

A traditional vintage Christmas card using the Dashing Deer Bundle (149935).
This card focuses on the distressing technique. By gently inking the edges and blending the area you can create an old faded feel. Taring the card stock is another simple way of adding a distressed look to your design and texture to your card.
The designer series paper has those lovely traditional reds and greens, along with thin strips of Night of Navy. I have used this colour for the main image and sentiment to tie in with the designer series paper. This make them stand yet does not look out of place.
Check out the tutorial below...

What you will need:
Thick Whisper White Card Stock (140490) - C6 card base
