Pretty in Blue...

Hi Everybody,

Many of the cards I make are at the very least 5 x 7  and often much bigger than that.

But todays card is just a small A2 size made using the A2 Curved Matting Basics.

This seems to be the size that is popular in America and so I thought I would show you one that I have made.

It has been made in the Hinged card style and I have lined the inside.

The front has been layered using the A2 Curved Borders One  and it looks lovely on the side... and the bit that was waste I have added to some foam pads and matted along the top of the curve.

I have cut two ... one blue, one white ... of the Venetian Motifs and layered them off set  and then in the centre I have added a sentiment from Lili of the Valley and cut it out with a plain circle.

The Organza ribbon is from my "Stash" and a white pearl has been added to the centre.  Just a little bling from Want2Scrap   to finish it off and that's it  ... done

More tomorrow

Hugs xx

  4. Thanks for sharing Your beautifull creations.
    We use the International ISO meteric size and USA, Canada and a few other countries use their own inch size. When You wrote A2 card size, it confused me, because it is a very BIG card 42x59 cm, in my meteric world :-)So I learned something new today.

  5. Beautiful! Love the blue!

  6. Another fabulous card I love the colours thanks again for sharing
