“Read All About It” Card
This beautifully shaped card was created by Betsy using one of her favorite tools – the Grand Calibur by Spellbinders. She has cleverly layered the pieces from the chipboard pack and the detailing is once again fabulous!
These colored flowers form the perfect accents and small details such the seam binding ribbon bow (which she colors with glimmermist) and rhinestones all co-ordinate perfectly with the Echo Park Collection.
“Something I Heard” Card
Betsy has used a simple but very effective layering technique to create a lot of dimension in this card. Each layer subtly adds to the overall effect and I particularly love the clean lines and use of lots of paler papers. The border punch and the ribbon bow add just the right amount of detail.
This card has so many potential uses. New Baby, Congratulations – or any time you want to send a special little note. The bright color palette is sure to brighten up the recipient’s day!
