In the stack of cards that were donated I found some handmade cards. They were not A2 sized so I chose to use the main elements as focal elements for my cards. For the first card I cut out this beautiful hand painted image of three rose buds. I had to cut them apart and recombine them with the leaves at the bottom so I watercoloured the space in between in green which tied them together quite nicely. I stitched this focal element to a pink rectangle then layered a piece of dark green below on which I mounted a laser printed greeting punchie which I sponged a bit around the edges. Layered this large element to a dark green card front.
For my second card, I trimmed the focal element from the card, added an embossed pink rectangle to the bottom and glued it to an orange card front. I glued a strip of yellow cardstock where they joined an then added a layered punchie greeting. The greeting is a digital by Bird's cards to which I added a font greeting, laser printed and watercoloured. I glued it to a white scallop punchie and thinking that it needed a bit of something else - I pierced the scallops! That was better. I adhered it to my card using 3D foam tape.
Easter is coming up and it is nice to have a few cards ahead.
