Truly Grateful card inspirations - DT project for Paige Evans

Hi there crafty people,

I'm stopping by today to share my latest projects for the Paige Evans Design Team.
This time I was asked to make some cards - which of course I don't mind, I love making cards, especially using patterned papers! I've used the stunning Truly Grateful collection to create this trio.

All these cards are top folding A2 size cards. On the first one I created a shaker window, with the help of some older Waffle Flower dies. I cut out a circle from patterned paper then layered a piece of acetate behind it and attached it to the card base using foam adhesive. Obviously before I did this, I placed some gorgeous Truly Grateful sequins on my card base, where the window would go :). I glued down the big die cut flower, then embellished the card front with flowers from the ephemera pack. Last but not least, I added a sentiment sticker and some gold splatters.

On my next card I also used the same die - I actually die cut this flower from 3 patterned papers and white card stock, then mixed up the pieces as you can see in the photos. Here I first adhered patterned paper on my card base, then added a slightly smaller piece of white card stock. I glued down the big flowers, sentiment sticker, small flower, some epoxy sticker dots and attached a big button in the flower center. To finish off this card, I placed some teeny tiny butterfly die cuts on the flowers and splattered gold ink all around the card front.

My third and last card is the simplest of them all! I covered my card base with patterned paper, added two thin strips of paper in the middle as well as a big, layered butterfly (the die is from Concord&9th). A sentiment sticker, gold splatters and some twine finish off this card. Easy peasy!

That's it for today! I hope I could inspire you in one way or another. 

Thank you for stopping by today!
