Botanica(l) cards

Hi All,

Linda here with a couple of cards made with the eye catching Botanica range.

They both use papers from the paper pad which is absolutely perfect for card making as it is all scaled down versions of the 12×12.

The first one is a 6×6 card blank which I have covered with Stem – the dots are glossed, I love this effect. Next I cut a piece of  Leaf   3 1/2 x 4 1/4″  and stamped with black ink using the clear stamps. It was then mounted onto the brown side of Leaf. This was placed at a “jaunty” angle. Several images were cut from the Habitat paper and these were layered with foam tape along the right hand side. All edges were inked with an Orchid Kaiser ink pad – this colour works perfectly with the Botanica collection. In the back of the paper pad there is always a selection of very useful tags, borders and sentiments so I used the above tag then created a copy using Roots. These were tied together with a little piece of ribbon from my collection, then added with foam tape to raise it. Finally I stamped some leaves in black ink, cut them out and added around the tags. A little Milled Lavender Distress stickles & a few pearls completed the card.

The second followed a similar vein, the 6×6″ card blank was covered with Botany with a mat of Plant cut to 5″ square. This was stamped with different leaves with a border torn from Leaf and a little lace. Another 3 images from Habitat were added towards the right with foam tape. The tags I cut by hand using offcuts, the message is from my collection, stamped in black over one of the leaf stamps inked with Orchid. These were tied with another piece from the lace collection. More leaves were stamped, cut out & placed onto the card. Finally some more Milled Lavender Distress stickles & a few pearls were added to finish.

Take care & enjoy your week – more inspiration to follow from the Design Team later.
