Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Desk Top Makes

Hi Everybody,

I have ben having another rummage around my desk and found lots of items that I can make cards with. Here is just one that I have made with my lovely desk top finds.

The back panel to this one has been foiled and then layered onto some lilac card.

I then added it to the card with foam tape underneath. for extra dimension. The little sentiment has also been foiled and backed onto lilac card and added at the bottom of the panel.

The flowers are some from my stash and they have been glittered for more sparkle.

The close up shows you how I have positioned the butterfly on top of the flowers as if it has just landed on there 

I am quite pleased with this card and it will go to someone special on their birthday. 

The back panel and sentiment are some that I foiled ages ago and kept in a pot ready to be used when the time came. 

I made more from my finds and I will show you as the week goes on.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. What a pretty card Christina, Im just getting my craft room back as my son has moved out but I have to sort it out before I can use it, which is going to take a little time I think.

    Have a lovely day

  2. I really like that criss=crossed background. I don't really know what the die is called. I've always loved the flowers you add..always my favorite. I'll have to admit that I didn't see the butterfly you mentioned until I enlarged the screen quite a bit. I had thought they just blooms. Lol Thanks for sharing, Christina.
