Exchange cards using SU digital images

 I created these two cards using colour printed digital elements from the StampinUP set - Sweet Sorbet Accessory pack.  I used Corel Draw to layout two different flowers and the corkboard border adding a greeting as well.  I fussy cut all the elements leaving a bit of a border.  I sponged the edges of the borders and left the flowers with the border showing.  I embossed a quarter sheet of kraft cardstock using a Quick Kuts embossing folder (QK), layered it onto an off white card front and layered on my elements in a nice arrangement.  I adhered the large white flower using 3D foam tape to give it a bit of dimension.
I will be sending these cards to my partners for the CCE cards exchange I am involved with.
It was the first time I used any of the full colour digital elements from this set and I am happy with how these cards turned out.  The most difficult part was deciding how big to make the elements so they would work together in my layout.


Thinking of you card

Made a card for someone who had to put down their four legged best friend this week!
I used coordinating decorative paper over an ivory card front and applied a strip of brown with polka dots washi tape where they join.
I layered the colour printed greeting over a coordinating layer of cardstock and adhered it to the card front using 3D foam tape.
Quick and easy!!
