Crafty Cardmaker's Spotlight - Decoupage

Above is the day time outfit For the decoupage challenge I thought I would make a really simple card, if you've never tried it before, a one layer addition couldn't be easier and yet remain so effective. This is from a Kanban kit, I added from my stash the main card, which is a D.L. size and the light blue card I matted the girl onto. Her head, arms, dress and feet have an additional layer, secured with silicone gel. I made the flower posy by gathering a length of blue organza ribbon, securing it, adding a white flower, with silver and the same organza blue ribbon trailing down the card.


  1. This is lovely! The flower posy is gorgeous - never tried making my own.

  2. This is such an elegant card, I love it. xx

  3. great card love the day time out fit too smart lady

  4. Both of these are gorgeous Caz, but I particularly like the blue evening gown as she just looks so elegant.

    Great idea with the flower posy too.

  5. I really like these cards the decoupage just helps make the ladies pop.

  6. They are both lovely cards. I know some people are snobby about Kanban kits but I love their stuff, especially the foiled cards.

    The blue one is my fave too, the flower embellishment with the long ribbon really enhances the long lines of the elegant dress. Oh to be that thin...... LOL
