I do enjoy making cards as it is so lovely to give 
& receive beautifully handcrafted cards 
so precious... 
 I loved the new Vintage Journal Card papers from 
to design with 
these images of the flappers era really appeal to me
as it is my favourite 
I chose to leave these  5x7 inch cards in a simple format  
to enhance the matted images

frayed muslin, a beaded tassle, lace ribbon & a matching rose to highlight 

double matted image, lace, chiffon flowers, ribbon & bling 

double matted image, tied ribbon, feathers & flowers with a tangle of thread to complete

Now for the more masculine cards 
we all manage to create feminine cards when it comes to a design for the men in our lives we tend to take a big deep breath & shudder at the thought 
I hope these help to inspire 
Fussy cut around the gentleman with a top hat & leaned him on the 'Celebrate' ticket, a few cogs, mesh ribbon & a tied knot of string 
corrugated cardboard is always handy to have 
adding a few metal & wooden cogs & again string in a reef knot to finish

corrugated cardboard, tied ribbon, arrows, photo corner &
 a metal embellishment bring this card together
I hope these cards have inspired you to create 
Whilst your here wander through the blog posts &
 see the gorgeousness the GARDEN GIRLS have created
Thanks for visiting
