For each card, I started with a 5.5" x 4.25" piece of scrappy collage paper I created a while back. I cut them in two so they would be large enough and added a layered tape border over the gap. This tape - sort of like duct tape - arrived on my Christmas Secret Sister gift. I was able to remove it intact so I saved it!! The colours were perfect for these cards. I glued those elements in place and went looking for images and greetings. I found these two images of little girls by Lilac and Lavendar which I thought would do perfectly so I trimmed them to size and watercoloured them. The greetings were in my stash - I layered them with colour coordinated label punchies (SU) which I cut in two so they would provide just a nice frame around them. I glued the images in place over the tape border and added the layered greetings to the lower right. I thought that the image on the pink card needed a bit of something so I added a gel pen faux stitching border. I added a dotted line border with the same gel pen on the greeting on the green card for the same reason. I love this colour combination!!
