Melissavena: Papers 1
The latest card at Cards by Carol is my version of the Butterfly Cutout Card.
The background paper is from Melissavena Papers 2.
My son Killian took this photo of the printed card for me.
There are some finishing tips for making this card at Cards by Carol.
While using this Design Seeds’ swatch to design my latest kit, I kept thinking of honey and oats. Melissa is Latin for honey bee and Avena is Latin for oats, hence Melissavena!
Hmm, oats and honey, now I want to bake cookies…
You may notice a familiar element in this kit, the little envelope with the tag attached with a glass-headed pin? I was so pleased with how this turned out that I went on to make that whole series of them for my Memorial cards, so this kit gives you the original one to add to your collection.
I’m particularly pleased with how this lace turned out. I dyed all my Venetian Lace with herbal teas; this one was dyed with peppermint tea. I love how it produced that soft colour. I’m using the real life lace on hand-made journals, but you get to play with the digital version soon 🙂 Papers 1 today…
