I get this 8x8” paper pack in my mailbox from Cutters Creek. The paper is by Graphic 45 (one of my favs) called A Ladies Diary. I look at each sheet of paper and the prints are beautiful on both sides. Yep it is double sided. A card makers dream.
I ponder a while and wonder what papers will I use. And what image will I need to find that will go with the theme. And then color it. Then it hit me! I will fussy cut one of the images from the paper and it will be my focal point.
I chose three prints to make my card. And added black paper from my stash as the accent color.
Surprisingly what I thought would be a hard task to pull it all together started to flow so easily. It took me a long time to make the card because I added die cuts, flowers, butterflies,flourishes using only the 3 pieces of paper from A Ladies Diary and the black paper from my stash.
Below the photo will be all the details on what I used to make the card. And you can click on the photos to get a closer view.
Sidebar: It couldn’t happen at the worse time but the battery to my digital camera died. No it didn’t need re-charging it died and was not fixable. New one ordered. So Kim of Cutters Creek reminded me I could take pictures with my iPad Mini. My first time for this but what made it worse I had to sync it to my computer first . When it rains it pours. The photo images do not do the card justice but you still see how awesome the card turned out. I don’t think I will be able to let go of this one
