I trust you are all well and that yesterday turned out to be a good Monday for you.
The cards I'm sharing with you this morning were made some time ago now and they have been lying in the basket forgotten till today. Both cards, a note card and a birthday card, feature toppers from the same Italian themed Kanban sheet - Casa Colonica.
For the note card I used an off-cut of Kraft cardstock trimmed, scored and folded to make a card base measuring 4" x 5¾" covered in paper from Prima's 6x6 Botanical collection. For the layering I used papers from Docraft's Papermania 6x6 Birdsong collection topped off with a strip of the Prima paper - bakers twine has been wound round and tied with a bow topped with a button before attaching the topper which was matted on to a piece of the Birdsong paper. Butterflies punched from the leftover edges of the topper sheet; and decorated with pearls embellish the front. Off-cuts of the Prima paper decorate the inside.
This card was made for my elderly uncle's birthday. As he is well-travelled and loves Italy, I thought this would please him and maybe even give him the desire to visit Tuscany again.
The base is a square white deckle-edged card covered in Basic Grey's Origins 6x6 paper pad matted on to some textured gold paper, I've forgotten the source but I think it was from the fab box of goodies Jo of Jozart sent me some time ago.
Thanks for looking and take care everyone.
