Simple yet beautiful card making

 Sometimes thr simplest cards are the most beautiful and they certainly don't need loads of supplies, as I have demonstrated with this months inspiration for

For this months inspiration I have used an image called Panda on a branch by Lee Holland which I have then coloured using my Black Widow pencil colours. 

I recently did a review on Black widow pencils and if you would like to check it out you can find it here

I mounted the image on scrap cardstock and fussy cut it.

I made a card base out of Papermilldirect green cardstock that measures 4 × 6"

I cut a piece of Marvellous Marble cardstock from Love to Craft and adhered it straight onto the base.

I cut a second piece of green Papermilldirect cardstock to 4 × 6" and die cut Everglades Collage from Memory Box into the centre. I then took a page from Pretty Pegs paper stack cut it to the same size and again die cut the centre.

I then adhered the two together. Next I glued my panda image onto the aperture before securing all of this to the base.

I embellished using handmade flowers and some Rhubarb Crumble Nuvo drops.

Simple green and gold card


This month I was challenged to make a green and gold card for

I knew exactly the collection that was needed for this card....Inkdrops Ocean from Craft Consortium. Its absolutely stunning and has greens with gold mixed in running through the papers. 

I used Papermilldirect green card stock to create my base which is roughly 6 × 4" I then layered a solid green piece of Inkdrops Ocean on that base before cutting panels from my scrap pieces and layering my card. I die cut two circles using my Daisy Mae stitched circles from my offcuts of the paperpad and popped them up on foam pads.

Finally I die cut hello from gold mirror card and scrap white card before adhering them together and placing them across the middle of the circle.

To finish the card I have used Nuvo Crystal drops in Mustard gold and Pale gold.

Large Easel card


Today I am sharing an easel card I made for the using a design kit from Polkadoodles called Whinnies Sugar Sprinkles which you can find

I have created a video to accompany this card blog post which you can watch here I would love it if you would subscribe to my YouTube channel while your over there!

For this card I used plain cardstock which measured 8.5 x 9.5" and I scored on the 9.5" side at 4.75" and then again half way between the score line and the end of the cardstock.

The plain matt layers measured 8 3/8 × 2 1/4 and 8 3/8 × 4 5/8" respectively.

The pattern paper was cut to 8 1/8 × 2" and 8 1/8 × 4 3/8" then the kit pieces were mounted on top.

The matt layers around my topper left roughly a 1/8" boarder from my main image.
