More cards from kits - decorative paper framed images

 A few more cards made up from kits from my last class.  I have made several up others over the last little while but this is not a very flexible kit in that the supplies pretty much need to be made up using this sketch.  It does allow a lot of variety in regards to occasions though as you can see these are baby and birthday, Valentine's here, anniversary here and sympathy here.
They are easy to put together - simply glue the strips to create a frame on the card front and then colour the image and glue it inside the frame before gluing the little strip of embossed card stock over the bottom of it.  I discovered that the decorative paper for the little balloon bear was double sided so I used two strip of each design. That worked out really well and adds a bit of interest.
For the next two which were both the same cupcake image (Digital Graphics Cafe)  I used pearly paint on the icing and clear dimensional paint on the little hearts which was fun!!    The little horse is from Beccy's Place and the little bear is from Birdie Brown.      Therese
