Back in July I saw this post by Alicia on her blog Time To Create, showcasing the Kaisercraft Botanica collection. I was so taken with all her samples ( she did three posts) that I bought a 6x6 stack of the Botanica papers when I saw them at a craft fair a while later.
I needed a couple of quick cards recently, and both were for women who are keen gardeners, so I reached for the pad, remembering Alicia's post as I did so.
These are the result.
The main elements in both cards were the papers, including the small botanical samples and a pre-printed label.
This card was made using a purple colour scheme, and added some ribbon and clear rhinestones to finish. All edges were sponged with purple ink.
I stamped the sentiment and embossed with pale lilac ep.
Here is a close up of the ribbon and rhinestone treatment.
The other card was made with a green colour scheme.
The mauve twine and rhinestones were the embellishments, and the edges were sponged with green ink.
And the sentiment was embossed in dark green.
I kept this card a simple as the background paper has a wonderful sheen to it.
While I was photographing this I was closely supervised by Octavius, our resident teenager with attitude, (and unfortunately arthritis)!
