Another card that features a cross digital image

After a request from a friend for a few cross cards I came up with this layout.  It is a cross digital image I found on line and laser printed onto white cardstock. After trimming, I watercoloured it to coordinate with the background I had chosen which is a laser printed digital image from Pixabay.  I mounted the background to a blue green card and added the layered image on the card front using 3D foam tape.  No greeting to make the card as versatile as possible and appropriate for quite a few religious occasions.


Cards for a set - decorative paper, large circles and layered butterflies

My sister's father in law passed away last week and I know that those times are often overwhelming in a family so I made up some cards which can be used as they see fit after the memorial.  
They feature decorative paper that has been torn, an embossed circle of cardstock and a layered butterfly (TH).  After I decided on the sketch I simply dug through my stash to find decorative paper which I cut to size, coordinating card and cardstock circles that coordinated as well.  I tore the paper and adhered it to my card front and then attached the embossed circles.  I found coordinating cardstock and decorative paper scraps from which I cut the small layered butterflies (TH - small butterfly thinlets).  I watercoloured  the bodies just a little bit in black to give them a bit of contrast.  This is a versatile sketch in that you can rip the paper horizontally or vertically and you can also layout your elements in either orientation as well.   Very happy with all the cards and I am sure they will be appreciated!!
