Same image - three sizes ...

Hi Everybody,

Digital cardmaking is so easy to do and you may have many CD's in your crafting "Stash"

 But maybe you aren't making the most of them and using them to their full potential.

This picture shows you the same image from the Cherry Blossom Lane CD created in three different sizes for each card.

And if you would like to win a copy of this CD from PolkaDoodles then you need to click this link...

 This card is made to a 15cms square and the two rabbits have been cut out.

I have used backing papers and the sentiment from the CD and the flower has been decoupaged with a pearl centre.

I have added a pink bow and pearl to the top left and matted it all onto a darker pink card.
 This one is a larger 15 x 21 cms and the image has been re sized accordingly.

I have used lilac lace and a gingham ribbon on this with a pearl in the centre of the bow.

The large Rose in the bottom right is re sized and decoupaged with three layers on to the card and the sentiment is added with foam pads.
And this one has the two rabbits printed out to almost A4 and added to a white base card.

I then cut around the base card to make it free standing and it opens up so that an insert can be placed inside if needed.

The addition of pearls into the  centre of the flowers on the dress to the left, and some glitter and yellow ribbon on the dress to the right is all I have done.

There is nothing added to any of them that wouldn't be in any craft "stash" and the CD has done all the work in giving me pretty things to add to the design.

More tomorrow  ....  

Hugs xx

  6. Love all three Christina but there is something about the third one that really wins my heart... I like how you cut around the base of the card to make it free standing,I did wonder! When I get ink I will be using the digital Cd you gave to me last summer.. what was the name of that online store where you get yours? Beautiful job, hugs

  7. Like everybody else I love the image and also what you've done with it in different sizes. Certainly making us think about the images we already have! xXx

  8. Beautiful cards! I love how you 'fussy cut'... you do such a good job! Have you ever done a tutorial?!

  9. you are so right Christina,I have loads of CD's some I haven't even used yet need more time in the day to play,maybe less time on the computer huh.These are lovely.

  10. And how cute would it be to print off the same image several times to create a 3-D effect? I can see several elements on the image you've used that would be perfect for building up. Thank you for your lovely samples.

  11. Wow Im new to the Digi crafting but this is Genius... Thanks so much for showing me the way I was a bit nervous ;-) Your hard work is much appreciated...x

  12. Oh I love the looks of the bunny's. All the cards are wonderful.
    I'd love to learn more about digi crafting.

  13. Great examples of what you can do with one image - must admit I've got lots of craft CD's and definitely don't use them to full advantage.

    Hugs Su xx
