Cards for the Queensland Floods

Geli here with a couple of cards I made for the QLD flood appeal.

They were quick and easy to whip up with all the gorgeous paper flowers and embellies from the my2angels shop.

I especially like the gardenias, they are already dimensional and just gorgeous.

Here's how:
card 1:
- Fold a piece of cardstock (5 1/2 x 11") in half and cut a 2x2" window in the middle.
- Stick down a purple felt ribbon
- Add some rhinestones 3/4 around the window
- Decorate with a mulberry flower and white stemmed star flowers and bling them up with a little glitter glue
- I cut a felt heart in half and inked one half with purple ink.
- pop on a few metal textured stars . These are cute and puffy and add just the right amount of shine
- Stamp a sentiment in the window and you are done.

card 2:

- On card 2 use a mini gardenia and some skeleton leaves
-Ink the paper leaf to match your colour scheme
- Add a key charm with the help of a jump ring and an eye pin
