I love this colour!!
I thought I would use up some of the Designer Series Papers called Garden Impressions which retires soon.
I have used the particular patterned papers that have Shaded Spruce on them, in particular, the stems and leaves, and some of the splodges.
I have made a set of three cards, using the same layout, just with some slight variations to change the look of the cards.
This set shows how easy it can be to take a simple layout and make cards that are completely different.

I have added a layer of white cardstock with a strip of the patterned paper to the inside of each card.

Country Floral

I had heaps of fun over the weekend with some lovely ladies who came to my home for a class, and we made this set of cards.

I wanted to show them how it is possible to use the same items and similar layout and create three very different cards.
The cards feature the gorgeous Country Floral Embossing Folder, which is just so beautiful.
I have combined this with some different patterned papers, the Gingham Gala and also the Garden Impressions.
So pretty.
Happy Stamping!
