Some Cards to Share
Using some of our NEW Trims
By JJ Sobey

Hello everyone. Today I would like to show you a few cards I made using 
some of the gorgeous NEW Green Tara Trims.

"Pastel Birthday Card"
For this card, I wanted to show one of the new Diamante Trims.
  I quite like the 'bling' effect on cards.
I've also used  one of the Rainforest Butterflies - in  pink.
Flowers - Cherry Blossoms White (FLC22Wh)

I just love these Rainforest Butterflies.

"I Heart U" Card
The "I Heart U" is a piece of the new Diamante Trim
 (available in many styles). 
 This design combines a sentiment with an embellishment, 
which makes the card come together even faster.

I added a few white roses, and the new Glitter Hearts Organza ribbon to finish it up.
Ribbon - 15mm Glitter Organza Hearts (RB330WS15)
 1.5cm Roses White (FDR003Wh)

"Teal & Gold Birthday Card"
For this card I wanted to highlight one of the new 
3cm Rainforest Butterflies.  
This size is perfect for cards, and in the Bronze colour,
 it pairs wonderfully with the new Light Brown Roses.

I was so happy to receive some of these new Suede trims - 
not only are they great for wrapping around part of a card,
 but I'm looking forward to using them on a lot of 
'Boy' scrapbook pages.

It's like someone read my mind when Green Tara
started carrying these Wire Cords. 
 I can shape them how I like, and they will keep their shape.  
 For this card, I wrapped the cord around a bamboo skewer, 
then tucked it in around the flowers to look
 like part of the greenery.

Trims - 3mm Suede Cord Olive (RB761Ol)  
1mm Wire Cord Green (RB1164Gr) 
Flowers - Light Brown Roses 2cm (FDR006LB) 

Thanks for calling by.
