Inspire Card (Meg's Garden/ Dusty Attic/ Helmar)

The extra strip of paper you receive with each of Meg's Garden papers are the perfect size to be folded in half to a perfect card size. I used the French Bird Cage sheet of paper from the Le Belle Jardin collection. This beautiful floral paper is so delightful and easy to work with. Meg also carries a beautiful selection of lace and flowers in the shop to embellish your projects. In addition, I have added some beautiful Dusty Attic chipboard pieces from my scrap stash and a handmade pink rose to compliment my card.

I used the Dusty Attic mini word inspire, a left over piece from the French garden border casing and a butterfly from the newest January 2013 release. I primed the chipboard with gesso and used texture effects paste on the title and border and then glass bead gel and ink on the butterfly.

I also added a large handmade rose (tutorial to follow soon) and surrounded it with a few Dusty attic flowers.

NOTE: I used Helmar adhesives for this project: The Premium Craft glue for the lace, Acid-Free glue for the chipboard and handmade flower as well as 450 Quick Dry glue to adhere all the flowers to the card.
