Decoupaged card

Hi everyone, hope you are all well.  We have been having really hot summer weather over the last few weeks, today is a little cooler for which I am grateful!

Today I am sharing something that Amanda introduced us to at our last meeting.  Pre-printed cards are freely available on the internet on site such as Crafts u print.  For me, at this point in my life, I find them great, no creativity is required as all you need to do is print them, cut them out and assemble.  Your desk remains clean, you can cut anywhere (in the car waiting for children at school or at sport's matches) and the results are gorgeous.  Over the last few days I made this card for a friend's daughter who is getting married tomorrow.  It is beautifully presented in a box which is perfect for enclosing a monetary gift.  The dress is 3 layers assembled with foam tape and I've glittered the box and dress a little.  I tied a beautiful organza ribbon around the closed box.

I will post pics of the other 2 cards that I am busy with soon.

Hope you have a great weekend and get a little "me time".  I'm finding life exhausting at the moment so hope to catch some on Sunday.

These cards are very popular because you can produce them quite quickly. Lovely Debbie.

Thanks Sharon, this one was fairly quick but the one I am working on at the moment has taken 2 hours just to cut out. Have a fab day! xxx
