Sandra's - cards for the Ladies

Hello Bloggers

This is Sandra's first post as a DT member & she explain her gorgeous cards:

'I was thrilled to receive my first delivery of gorgeous products from Meg’s Garden & decided to use pictures from the ‘Labels for Dreaming’ to make three beautiful cards suitable for the ladies.  I have to admit I love the designs so much I didn’t want to cover them up, hence the decision to showcase them front and centre of a card.
There are three layers on the front of the cards -  firstly vellum then cardstock and finishing with the beautiful pictures.  These are also suitable for cards or journal tags and embellishments on a layout.
I am so in love with the leafy die that I’ve used it on all three cards, as branches of leaves and for tucking behind flowers.

To adhere the vellum so no glue showed I firstly glued the other two layers then used double sided tape on the back of the vellum in the same spot as the previous layer of cardstock, voila no sign of glue or tape.'

Meg’ Garden Products:
 Vintage Beauties Pack(a great pack with lots of goodies included)
Lace - 3cm white   L2853 
Mini roses

Other Products Used:
Cardstock in White, Black, Maroon Textured
Vellum or Translucent Paper

Gorgeous cards Sandra - well done.  Love your use of the Labels for Dreaming paper - these labels are great for cards but they also fit the new 'Project Life' sleeves.
The cards are a great start to your term on the Dt - keep up the great work.

Bye for now
