Final card for 2016 and a reprise of previous cards for Meg’s Garden in the past few months

The Pretty Pastels paper collection from Meg’s Garden has been so inspiring, I couldn’t let this year end without posting one final card.

I admit to a little trouble with this card as I wasn’t sure about the focal point I had used, i.e. the white rose.

I fussy cut the white rose from the Ephemera cut and create sheets, then felt it was a little too large.  I didn’t remove it but it bothered me.  Then I remembered some Green Tara flowers that Meg had sent me, that I felt might be better. I simply used the original rose as a backdrop.  It seemed to help everything blend together a little better.  What do you think?

I finished the inside of the card by matting green and white card stock to match the front and adding a little sneak peek of a new paper collection coming soon.


I hope you enjoy this little run through of the cards I have made in recent months as a member of the Meg’s Garden Design Team.

I hope you have some time to visit Meg’s Garden website and see all the lovely papers, ephemera and accessories.  So much to love if you are a paper crafter.  Meg’s is an Australian paper crafting company and, as we all know, they are few and far between. I’m sure you will find lots of inspiration.

I would like also to take this opportunity to wish all my friends and followers the Happiest New Year. Have Fun, Stay Safe and see you all in 2017.

Hugs  Barbara

    1. Thank you. No I don’t sell cards, but I might start my etsy shop this year as I have had a lot of requests about it. I run classes to teach card making and other crafts and I enjoy it so much.

  1. I wanted to stop by and wish you a Happy New Year, but got treated to lovely cards as well. Bonus! Thanks for being such a great blogging pal. You were so kind and supportive when I first started out. I will never forget that and I now try to do the same for others, following your example. I hope 2017 is great for you!
