Pink Paislee - 2 cards with C'est La Vie

Hello everyone, I'm here with you today to share a couple of cards I made using the gorgeous Pink Paislee collection. With the theme 'spring' in mind I think florals so the C'est La Vie collection was just perfect.

 I created two 4x6" in size cards from white card stock. I then gathered my goodies from C'est La Vie and knew I wanted to focus on using some of the acetate cut apart sheet within the design.

For the first card, I used the Hello 4x6" piece on the acetate sheet. To help the 'hello' text pop more I backed it with a small piece of white card stock. This meant that it didn't face into the patterned triangle print of the matting paper. I simply finished the card by layering a 4" doily and then added a small banner cluster, an ampersand die cut and one of the stunning mirror words in 'hello'.

This second card combines a number of different elements. At the bottom of the layers is a 4" in size doily perfect for cards, layered on top of that is a 3x4" acetate card, a tag from the ephemera pack, a tag handmade from a patterned paper and then the 'bravo' word strip also cut from a patterned paper. The 3x4 card had the most beautiful floral design which I just had to have feature on this design. I finished the card with a triangular corner and a cork heart, just to draw your attention back in to the main part of the card.

Here are the cards together, what a perfect little card to gift to a friend as a congratulations or even to write a sentimental thank you message. Its always nice to let someone know we care when they are least expecting it or when they need it most.
