Papercraft Essentials 149 - Cottage Garden

Hi Everybody,

This months Papercraft Essentials magazine will be on sale tomorrow and with it there is a really pretty die and stamp set.

With the gift I have tried to show you some ideas that you may like to try and all are relatively easy to re create.

Having a floral background and adding a sentiment is one of the easiest ways to make a quick card and it is something I like to do with any of the floral stamps in my collection

Keep them altogether and then whenever you need to make a quick card you will have a ready made background all done and waiting

This is the video link that you may like to click to see some of the ideas I have had with this gift 
    Papercraft Essentials 149 Cottage Garden 

And if you have more time then maybe you would like to try this idea with some buttons.

I bought them from the £££ shop and I added them to a heart shape with a hot glue and then onto a Scalloped heart with foam pads

Then everything was added to a Distress Oxide panel and the floral stamp from the collection used to add more detail to the background

I really liked this card as it is different from my usual style. 
But I do like to mix thinks up a little every so often then I don't get bored

Hope you like and enjoy the video

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
