The card above has been made using a great digi pack that has the image and both the papers you can see here. I printed the papers onto glossy photo card. This is a large card at A5 size and I am really impressed with how clear and crisp they are.
I coloured the image with Promarkers & Flexmarkers and created 2 more layers for the pretty top mounted on 3d foam. I used the Nestabilities die to create the shape, just using the middle section. I then used the largest one to cut the spotty paper out embossing round the edge. The white mat has been made using the largest size drawn onto the back and I left a border the width of the metal die and cut it our freehand. It was a bit fiddly but I think it has made a more vivid mat than a thinner one would have.
I covered the main card with the heart paper and added a strip of spotty to the centre. The sentiment was added to a scrap of white card to tie in better and I added the flowers and brad combo to the side of the image.
This was a great digi set to work with, they obviously work very well together but are so adaptable and can easily be used independently of one another.
