Opulence Cards

Hi everyone I'm here today to share with you some cards I've made using the Opulence Paper collection found here.  Now I gotta confess that these are not my usual "go to" colours - but the papers in the collection are so gorgeous to work with that I really enjoyed making these cards to show you.  I hope you enjoy!

First up is my very first attempt at a card in a box card!  I don't know whether you've seen these before, but there a lots of these creations appearing on Facebook and Pinterest.

The beauty of this creation is that it folds flat to fit into an envelope!  How clever is that!  (In hindsight I should have taken a photo of it folded up but when I took these photos my glitter glue was still wet!!!!)

To find out how to make these card in a box cards - I did some online research and there are plenty of places to find the instructions.....

Next up are 3 very simple cards to make....

So I do hope you enjoyed my post today.  Don't forget I will be back on the blog on Thursday with my Focus on You.  So until then.....

Happy Crafting

These are all gorgeous Tina! I too recently made a box card at a workshop and loved it. The other cards are beautiful too and really show off the stunning papers. Jane xx
