A little Downton Abbey

Hello my crafting friends, so good to have you pop by today and pay me a little visit, I do appreciate it. If you leave a comment with your blog address I can return the favour.

Today's post is a card I made for a friends birthday last week, she is a big Downtown Abbey fan so I put this one together for her.

I loved these coloured papers that are on the Triple CD Rom, the colours are fabulous as well as the designs and I adored this die for the edge, so Lacey so I had to use it.  The images on the CD are fabulous and I feel this image could well be for a wedding as well as any occasions.

As you can see I matted a sheet of paper onto my base card, die cut the edge die four times and placed these round the edge of the inside of the card.  On the CD you have some Companions cards where they have the background to go with the image and other elements to match so I printed this one off to match the papers then raised the image in the center.

I hope this makes sense and if you are a fan of the Downton Abbey range there are some new embellishments coming this week on Create and Craft, in fact I think the shows start on Monday.

 Thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
