Butteflies and Gentlemen

Morning all, can't believe the weekend has shot by so quick, spent Friday night at a local school fete with a craft stall, but not many people turned up, so a bit of a washout, then spent all Saturday at a craft fair with my stall again, it was part of a local Street Scene festival, lots of people about but not many buying !
 Anyway, it's Monday again so it's Kanban time again.

The first card I have made is a pretty pastel coloured card .

For this card I used an 8x8 base card, then covered it with cream card. I took a Kanban shaped card and cut it in half, I then stamped the Rose STAMP04 on to it, I then cut an oval from the cream card and stamped the rose again, and adhered on to the bottom panel. Next using some paper from The Bloomsbury Collection pad, I stamped the rose again but just cut out the flower heads, and stuck them onto the main stamped rose. Using the same paper I added some corners to the cream card, and die cut three butterflies, adding bling to the centre of them and also on the shaped card. Finally I added some ribbon and stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the card.

The second card is one for the men. This is a simple easel card.

I used cream card for the base card and covered the bottom and the panel that fits on the top piece of the easel with Vintage Time-Cream card CRD1437. The top panel I mounted onto Copper mirri card, and also added a strip onto the front of the panel and also the base where the sentiment would go as a stopper. The main topper is from the Copperfield sheet PCT2120, and also the sentiment. The topper I raised up with foam pads, and the sentiment was added after adding another small strip of the Time card to the stopper area.
