Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Busy Cards

Hi Everybody,

This is what I would call a really busy card and even by my standards, where I like to add all sorts to my designs,  it is perhaps a little too busy.

It is part of a kit that I found in my cupboard while searching for something else and so I thought I would make use of it and not waste it.

The kit itself had double sided papers,  floral and butterfly toppers, foiled and shaped panels, foiled sentiments and ready folded cards in all pretty designs and colours.

 I made six cards from the kit and still had a few pieces left over that I can use on other cards. 

The flowers in the kit have been added with foam pads to give some dimension to the front and I have added in a few pearls to each one as well. 

I divided the little butterflies between the cards and added them with the wings slightly bent upwards to indicate movement.

The sizes ranged from A2, 6x6 Square and I created one 5x7 card as well.

They are all very colourful and I will pop these, with matching envelopes, into my donate box ready to give away to my charity shop.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  5. Yes, they are a bit busy but such pretty paper's and you have made the best of what you found in the pack. Thank you for sharing 🙂

  6. It would be interesting to see the first one in real life. It seems a little busy however if one displays it ,( who wouldn't display your cards forever), and stand back It is probably wonderful. Loving the square card. I am trying to use what I have and this is a great reminder!!

  7. Busy but both are lovely cards, Christina. The first one is a little bit too busy indeed, but the second one is so pretty and my favorite one. Thanks for sharing.
    Stay safe and healthy.
