Featuring Pemberley

Let's get active - with "interactive" cards that is.

March card class features three interactive cards made with the Pemberley paper package. Waterfall, centre step, and side step, these cards are fun to make and really make a statement to your recipients.

First up the waterfall card using a great new set called "Kick Back". (D1511-14 images $17.95) I love the colours of Indian Corn Blue and Honey together, highlighted with antique brass brads and a smidge of cocoa ribbon and baker's twine. The flower image and the seashell image were inked using the rolling technique. Very effective don't you think?

Let's "Side Step" to the next card. This is a great card that features three steps off to the side. I love the featured stamp set "Card Word Puzzle" (C1494 - 63 images $13.95) and think this is the best value stamp set. The flowers from this stamp set were stamped onto the honey patterned paper and layered with pop dots. A great image from Art Philosophy, edge distressed in cocoa, a couple of butterflys from Flutter Paper Shapes (Z1463 - $5.95) with antenna made from Chocolate waxy flax (Z1088 - $3.95)and this card is completed.

To centre us all back to the front - let's look at the "Centre Step". The shadow images from the stamp set "Childhood Portrait" (D1373 - 14 images $17.95) is another favourite of mine. This set was shown in the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book and will only be available until July 31, 2012. In the cluster of embellishments, I used Paradise Paper Flowers (Z1710 - $5.95), Colour Ready - Garden Wooden Shapes (Z1718 - 24 shapes $5.95), Bouquet Assortment (Z1694 - $5.95) and Paradise Assortment - Bakers Twine (Z1702 - $4.95)

I hope these cards have encouraged you to get "active"!!

Happy crafting.
