Cards with Chantilly Cream and Rose Quartz for Megs Garden

Hello lovely visitors and welcome to my blog.  It's been a few weeks since I posted anything and I am so happy that you dropped by.  I hope you are all having a wonderful day.

I'd like to share two cards with you today.  One was made with the beautiful Chantilly Cream papers and the other with the gorgeous Rose Quartz papers, both of which are, of course, exclusive to 

Card # 1 - Chantilly Cream.

Unfortunately, our weather has been quite dull lately (lots of rain) and because the light was quite bad, the colour didn't photograph too well.  It is a lot creamier than it looks here but I couldn't leave it for another day because this had to be posted Interstate.
This card measures 4" x  5.5".

The doily and the lace are both available at Megs Garden.  I will leave a list of Megs products (and links) at the end of this post.

This is the lace I used.

As I wanted to  tuck it in under the paper layers, I didn't need the full width so I trimmed off the top section and used that at the bottom of the card and then the remainder was inserted at the top.

This way you don't waste lace that you don't see.  Much more economical.

The leaves were cut from cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and I also sprinkled a few seed beads here and there. 

The frame was made with air dry clay and a small mould.  The lovely rose graphic glued to the center came from the Rose Quartz cut and create pages.

The flowers are from Prima .. had them in my stash for ages.  The ribbon is from Megs Garden.
I did wipe a little white acrylic paint around the card when it was done.

The inside has two pockets cut from the Chantilly Cream papers and edged with Martha Stewart's Floral Vine Deep Edge Punch.  One pocket is for a gift voucher and the other will have a personal message written on a journal card or tag.

That's the Chantilly Cream card done, and now for

Card # 2 - Rose Quartz

This one is quite tall .. it measures 3.5" x 7".  Don't think I have ever made one that size before, but I quite like it so I'm sure I will do it again.

I have used the same lace as on my first card.

I love these blooms.  They are available from Megs Garden and have not been altered in any way.  Once again, the leaves were cut from cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo.

This lace is just so gorgeous .. I love it!!  I didn't cut it apart this time though.

The tiny frame was made with hot glue and a Mod Podge mould.  First time I have used the hot glue .. works a treat, once you get the hang of it. 

Two pockets again on the inside cut from the Rose Quartz papers.  I don't always need a pocket for a voucher but it's handy to have one, just in case.

Thank you so much for dropping by to see my latest Megs Garden project.
