A bunch of simple cards

I made a bunch of cards of the weekend using some GORGEOUS paper from Cristina Re - some of this paper is now discontinued, but I just love it.  It makes cardmaking very easy, as you can just let the paper take centre stage.

I decided to just make a pile of cards for a variety of occasions, but with the exact same card layout.  The only differences are what paper I used, and the wording and placement of the sentiment.  Just goes to show what a difference colour and pattern can make on a very simple card!
 This gorgeous paper has a shiny, slightly metallic base, but the flowers and butterflies are flocked - just beautiful!
 BTW, this card uses the reverse side of the paper used in the 2nd card in this post - see above - much more subtle colour this way. 

And then I decided I was on a roll, so I did some in landscape orientation as well. 

 I added some Wink of Stella glitter brush to the centres of the flowers on this "Sky Blossom" paper.

(On the offchance that anyone at Cristina Re is reading this (you never know!), PLEASE bring back Sky Blossom!  I'm so miserable that it was discontinued!)

 I hope you have a fabulous day - thanks for visiting :)


  1. All great cards but the first one...absolutely stunning! TFS!

  2. Beautiful cards Michelle! I love Cristina Re papers too! I have a stash at home too but have not bought any recently!

  3. Simple or NOT...I LOVE them and love the wonderful variety of papers and colors you used! I love it when a very simple idea turns into a wonderful card...just like each of these! I may have to case one to try it out! :)

  4. FAB, FAB, FAB - love it when a plan comes together!!


Thank you so much for your comments - they always make my day!
