Create and Craft Four Day Deal - Part 1

The new four day deal on Create and Craft is a Card Creations Plus CD rom called 'Brushstrokes in the Wild' - once again, I was part of the Design Team making sample cards for the TV shows and I'll be sharing my cards over the next two days.

There are some amazing paintings on the CD rom and they're perfect for making cards for all occasions including cards for men.  For each of the paintings there are a series of toppers and verses plus different backing papers and borders.  The great thing about the toppers is that they look like they have been layered up (as you can see in the photo above) but print out flat - they give you dimension on your cards without the extra layers adding to postage charges.  I also love the tartan papers on the CD rom - you can see one of them in the photo of the card above.

Here's my next card using a zebra topper:

And the next using a giraffe image:

and finally a card using a leopard image:

I'll have some more cards to share tomorrow.
