Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Italian Collection ...

Hi Everybody,

This pretty card is created from the Italian Collection by Sue Wilson

The dies I have used are the Italian Background and the Tuscany and both sets are from JGD Crafts 

I have created this card as a  Hinged Card   and the link will take you to the tutorial for that style

The centre part has been colored with Dusty Concord and Bundled Sage Distress Inks and then sparkled with the Chameleon Glitter 

The link takes you to all the colors that are available in the Iridescent Glitters and there you will one I use all the time.

Slightly different mix but the Tuscany has had the same treatment but with Victorian Velvet this time and the rose is created from Felt.

Both pretty cards

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  7. Morning Christine,
    Two beautiful cards, if I had to choose I think it would be the first one. Havn't got these dies, I have quite a few just wish I could buy them all.

  8. I like them both but the pink is very eye-catching.

  9. Sue's dies are stunning and you've done wonders with them on your cards Christina. The purple one is my favourite but I think that's probably because it's purple! Pat x

  10. Both of these cards are just gorgeous. Love the color on both of them.

  11. Two great looking did an awesome job on both of them.
    Well done Christina

  12. Wow, wow, wow, once again, they are just so beautiful, I too love all Sue's dies, but hey the budget does not stretch that your work and inspiration Christina, thank you....luv Ursula xx

  14. Hi Christina, both cards are lovely but my favourite is the purple one. I do love the felt flower on the pink one though.

  15. Hi Christina
    two stunning cards today. how clever as they are made from the same products yet look entirely different.

  16. I love both of these, Christina but I think the purple one is my favourite. You've really got me hooked on hinged cards and I find I'm making more of them all the time :) x

  17. Two lovely cards Christina,thanks for sharing them!

  18. Both are just lovely, like how you have shown the die used in different ways, love your felt flower too!
