Sherlock Book Card Set by Nicole Doiron

Hello Meg's Gardeners!

It's Nicole and it's my turn once again to share with you a project designed for Meg's Garden.

Last month, I created a Vintage Mini-Album using the Sherlock Book Kit.  Well, this time around, I decided that I would use more papers and trinkets from the Sherlock Book Kit to create a multi-card set.

As you can see, I created 5 cards, all complementing one another in their design, patterns and colours.

I tried to use several paper patterns from the Sherlock Book kit in order to showcase it all.
Most metal accents were included in the embellishment kit that I received with the kit.
Look at the end of this post for the complete list of products used 
that came from the Meg's Garden shop.

Card 1

I decided to use french sentiments on my cards as I'm participating in a craft show in December in my hometown which is mostly French and am hoping that a client will want to give this card set a new home.

Card 2

The Sherlock Book kit papers offer many vintage images that are perfect to add to cards.

Card 3

 All the beautiful and colorful paper butterflies used were fussy cut 
from the Butterflies ATC paper available at Meg's Garden.

Card 4

 I added some handmade stitching to my cards to give them a bit more dimension.
Another way to add dimension is to pop up some parts of the card with 3-D foam dots, 
like in this case, the sentiment tag and the fussy cut pocket watch.

Card 5

My favorite part of the Sherlock papers are the tags.
I used 3 of this card and added metal eyelets that matched the Vintage Brass piece.

This was a fairly short post, but I wanted show you how versatile the Sherlock Book Kit is 
and let the pictures do the talking.

I hope you've enjoyed my cards
and that you will visit my blog HERE to see more of my creations.
