My Little Shoebox cards!

I really hope you like cards, as I've been making a lot of them lately! Here are a few more :) !!

Made with the Secret Garden collection from My Little Shoebox:

1. The first card is this “Thank You For Being YOU” card.
This card I started with the sentiment, which I wanted to be the centre of the card (cut with my Silhouette Cameo). I placed it on the heart shaped doily, chose two patterned papers and cut squares (the yellow side of Bonbons and the blue polka dot side of Dorothy), machine stitched the sides and then layered them all on top of each other. With 2 butterfly stickers from the sheet of Secret Garden Cardstock Stickers, some ribbon (Wildflower) and a laser cut butterfly from Want2Scrap it was done in no time.

2. My second card is this “Thank YOU” card (“you” is on the inside).
When creating this card I started with the layered background (both sides of “Sweetie”), added 2 strips of paper on the left side and machine stitched the sides. I then added the banner in the right top corner using the banner die-cuts from the “3D Roll-Up Flower and Accents” sheet (used my scissors to cut them in the desired shape). On top of it I adhered half a journaling sticker from the cardstock sticker sheet , added 2 more banner pieces and a sentiment and placed a small piece of doily under the top. Because I found the card too “empty” I added some ribbon on the left side of the card and a cluster in the left bottom corner of the card.

3. And now the last card: I really like to use lots of layers on a card and that’s how I started this card. First I chose one of the journaling cards (love), layered it on an old book page, then layered it on a piece of “Ocean” paper and then on the butterfly side of “Dorothy”. Before adhering it to my card base I stitched along all 4 edges. All I had to do now was add a few embellishments: butterfly and flower stickers from the sheet of Secret Garden Cardstock Stickers, a bling butterfly from Want2Scrap and the rest of the title (cut with my Cameo).

Hope I’ve inspired you to create some cards too.
Have a great week and hope to see you back soon!
