World Card Making Day

I got a little creative after collecting my girls from my folks today...and took part in Paper Issues World Card Making Day!

I used white base cardstock for both of them, as I wanted the colours to pop off them.

First card, used a postage style chipboard shape to create a 3D raised effect, which I painted in blue and chalked with white over it, then added a ribbon down the side before glueing it in place. Added a strip of Bo Bunny pattern paper and adhered the 2 types of Prima flowers in a row, then added some pearls to the centres. Added a small strip of American Craft glitter tape, then finished it off with a saying from Authentique elements cardstock and a 3D butterfly using my Martha Stewart punch.

Second card, used my last bit of leftover from my Authentique pattern paper making strips down the card, which I chalked the edges in brown. Added 1" circles and fussy cut the flowers out, added diamond glaze to the petals and raised them with raised foam underneath. Added 2 smaller 3D butterflies, and mounted my word "Thanks" onto paper and cut around it.

Thanks for popping by to have a look at my cards....♥
