Lili of The Valley

Hi Everybody,

These are some cards I made way back in 2011 and long before I discovered Spectrum Noir so no color list for this one.

But the Wild Orchid Crafts  flowers can be see in great abundance even then... as is the few Spellbinders that I had back then

The round  sentiment and the images are all  from
  Lili of the Valley
Making this style of card was covered in a video tutorial that I did at that time.

I am adding the link here for you to the actual  website page   Making a Card ... Inside and Out

I have moved on  lot from this these days but I still do a dry run with the elements before I glue anything in place.

The cards are all 15 cm squares and I also did another tutorial to follow this on making the boxes to go with this sized card.

It all seems so long ago when I watch these tutorials, but they are as useful now as they ever have been.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
