Quick Card 2

Another very quick card again using one of the layered toppers, and matting it onto a piece of blue card. I then framed the image with peel offs, high lighted the buttons again, added a strip of yellow stripe backing paper to one side and added a flower to finish in minutes

Quick Cards

I love this image, this is a really quick card to make, the central image is a large topper already layered up, just print this out and mount on to a card that has been covered with a matching backing paper, I then used dimensional magic to make the buttons stand out
