Chantilly Cream Cards with Flowers

Hello Bloggers

This post really should be called leftovers & mats since I used some of the ephemera that were not used on the Chantilly Cream mini book & created some cards using the Flower ephemera & different mats.

Vanilla bazzill was used, antique linen distress ink & leftovers from Chantilly Cream Papercraft kit - 3 pieces of ephemera featuring cream flowers.

Card no. 1:
The Snowdrops ephemera was mounted on green cardstock & then onto a sage green fibre material.
A butterfly charm, green ribbon & a pearl spray were used to embellish.

Card no. 2:
Was matted on blue/grey cardstock & then onto vanilla bazzill. It was them embellished with a small piece of tattered net, paper rose leaves, 2 blue paper flowers & an antique blue velvet forget me not. A blue ribbon was tied around the front of the card, a piece of dodo wire tucked into the
 flower posy & a ladybird charm added for whimsy.

Card no. 3
Is a tall slim card using the cream roses ephemera matted on sage green cardstock & then onto the vanilla cardstock.  The embellishing is again kept very simple - a cream woven edge organza ribbon, a pearl spray & a heart charm

The 3 cards were made in very little time; they used leftover ephemera, scraps of cardstock in my stash for mats & were embellished very simply.

The ephemera were all printed on a cream patterned background so, when cutting them out, you can use part of the this background as an additional mat - this is what I did with cards 1 & 2; card 3 had none used.

Hope these give you some ideas on simple cards

Bye for now
