I hope the cards are getting better but I know the photos are!

I have used some of my favourite colours in making this card as they went so well with the decoupage.  This was the from the wonderful Reddy range.

The lovely background papers were from Pink Petticoat's Vintage Rose collection which I have found I can use in a very different style cards.  I love being able to download papers as there is often something missing when I start to put a card together and downloads really help.

This was the first time I had used these particular spellbinder dies but it won't be the last as I can see them fitting in to lots of different designs.  My daughter saw the card and seemed fixated by the button covered to match the backing paper - I'm not sure why, but I didn't complain as she arranged for her partner's daughter to take the photos for me and I really couldn't have done the decoupage justice otherwise.

I must admit I haven't been very keen on decoupage until I came across these but they are so finely die cut that I loved working with them. 


  1. Ooooh what lovely cards you have made. Such gorgeous delicate designs and in such beautiful colours too!
