Trimcraft First Edition Introducing Pretty Posy

Hi all

I am back today with some of my makes using one of the new First Edition pads called Pretty Posy. This pad is lovely and floral.

I used the Open Butterflies from Things to Alter and painted them

I drew around the butterflies onto patterned paper and then cut them out before gluing them to the back of the MDF butterflies.

I then glued them together with PVA and decorated them with Simply Creative embellishments

I have a few cards to share using the Pretty Posy papers.

I've gone for more layers this time because the paper is so pretty i wanted to add more on. I tear the edges to add more texture to the layers or you can use scissors.

I painted the wooden frame with DecoArt Crackle paint and once dry i dabbed a brown ink pad over the top to give it a worn look. I picked up a few bits from the new A Beautiful Life collection which is exclusive to Poundland. I used the Pearls and brads on the flowers.

Thank you for visiting
