A Country Cottage Card

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have a lovely all occasion card that is positively smothered in lilacs.  I think this collection must be my all time favourite and I can’t get enough of the soft hues and the gorgeous papers.  The flowers are so easy to make.  Here I have used a Becca Feeken die – the Grand Cabinet  die and the cottage fitted inside this die so perfectly.  I have die cut three of the dies to add dimension.  I love adding the little birds from the Woodsy Wonderland collection as well.  They add life to the card.

I hope that I have inspired you to do something different with the lilacs.
