It is  not a difficult card to make if you follow my video tutorial, after all you stop and start and work at your own pace.

I promise that you will amaze your family and friends. I love this card!

    Lovely card Collette, enjoyed making it today. Just wondering if you know what colour cardstock you used for the card base?

    • Reply Collette October 25, 2016 at 10:21 pm

      Oops! I missed that one. I used CD163 Spearmint. So glad you had fun making it :)

    Have made a few of these cards. Love the technique. Want to use it for a wedding card so need to get my thinking cap on and come up with ideas to dress it up for the occasion.

    • Reply Collette October 25, 2016 at 10:24 pm

      A wedding card will be amazing! Maybe a photo of the couple dating, a photo of their engagement, a beautiful verse and the a church or wedding ring on the inside. So many options, I am sure it will be super stunning. Thanks for leaving me feedback :)

    I absolutely love this card. Your attention to detail is unbelievable. I tried to find the Kaisercraft, Christmas Wishes paper pad. I found it on Ebay but it was totally out of my price range ($54.16 for the 12x 12 paper pad from Australia). I’m so disappointed it was so beautiful. I will make this card when I find something comparable to the Christmas Wishes. It will be hard.
