C'est si bon?

I am trying now to do layers and textures - and this card was inspired by the one here



Yes I know this one doesn't look in the least bit like it - but I used Jo's as an example. Of course I can't emulate hers - but at least it is a start.

I think I am struggling because my cards are too small - so I don't have much room on them to put things.

So - I will be on the internet ordering card blanks.

What is your favourite size - 5" x 5" or bigger - square or oblong. The one I made above is 4"x4" which is 10cm x 10cm.

oh la la! C'est tres bon....Lovely,pretty and very feminine - like it!
I use 144mmx144mm card blanks from Craft Creations - Ive found it hard to use anything else as I personally find this size perfect.

Lottie, it's gorgeous and you have a style all of your own - you don't need to copy anyone else's!!

I cut cards as I need them - much easier that way as I'm totally unpredictable :)

This is beautiful - lovely balance.

Re card blanks, I prefer a larger card as I don't work well on a small canvas.

If you have a branch of THE WORKS near you, pop in - you can get 50 cards,plus envelopes for £5.99 - good quality card, not white white but as they are usually covered up anyway, it doesn't matter. They have different shapes/sizes. If no WORKS nearby, try the other cheapo shops.
