Hello everyone!!! I am heading out to the Manor tomorrow for a relaxing weekend so I thought I would share a couple of cards with you.
I hope to have several new items to share with you when I get back.
The first one I used a few matching papers to create a collage, added a couple of tags on the left side, then added my flowers. The white material with the tiny square holes in it is actually the plastic sheets used for needle point. I cut off a couple of pieces and added them as shown. The larger turquoise flowers is actually a flower cut in half, so I put the halves peeking out from under the papers. I like to layer things, especially paper, for me, the more layers the better I like it.
The next card below is more antique looking. I roughed up the edges of the background paper before adhering it to the card front. I added a strip of burlap across the card then I added another strip of paper, about 1" wide, across the bottom of the burlap. An antique lace was placed at the bottom of the 1" wide paper strip. And lastly I added the flowers and other embellishments along with a loopy bow with fine cording. The crocheted circle at the top of the flowers is actually cut from an old doilie I had. Gives the card an extra touch of texture.
That's all for now. Until the next time,
this is Donna wishing you a safe and happy weekend.
