Love and Laugh with Ce' La Vie

Hello everyone and welcome to our creative journey for 2018.
It's fabulous to begin the new year with a new collection and today I have the soon to be released C'est la Vie Collection.
I have made 2 simple layered cards using the 6x6 pad and the ephemera pack focussing on the beautiful neutral tones included in this range. A few layers and a simple greeting and we are ready to spread new years joy!!

I have cut a piece of the fern print from the 6x6 pad, 9.5cm wide x 14cm high.
While trimming the fern print I have utilized an offcut of the striped print from the reverse to create a decorative strip, 9.5cm wide x 1.2cm high.
I have selected the ephemera butterfly, greeting, tag and a large leaf,(cut from a pair).
I also had a chipboard rectangle that I had kept after using the greeting.
You can also trim the ephemera pieces a little further depending on the look you wish to achieve.
Ink all of your patterned pieces in a neutral tone and shape your butterfly wings.
For the greeting, tag and strip, cut a white layer giving yourself a border around the edges. Distress the edges of the white and attach the pieces as pictured above.
Attach the print to the A6 Cream card base, then the strip 3.7cm up from the bottom edge. 
Attach the tag into the lower left corner with 3d foam and embellish with the leaf, butterfly and greeting.

This is a print from the reverse of the papers that I love. Cut a piece 7.5cm wide x 15cm high.
I have selected the large flower bunch, greeting, tag, large leaf (cut from a pair from the first card)and the decorative medallion (that I have cut in half diagonally).
Again you can trim the ephemera pieces a little further depending on the look you wish to achieve.

Ink all of your patterned pieces and the A6 Cream card base in a neutral tone.
 For the base print, cut a white layer 8.5cm wide x 15cm high. Attach the 2 giving you a white border  as pictured and attach to the card base.
For the greeting and decorative medallion, cut and distress the white layers giving yourself a border around the edges. For the tag, cut a cream layer, attaching the 2 with 3d in between.
Attach the 2 sections from the medallion at the top and bottom of the tag as pictured and attach the whole piece to the centre of the card.
Embellish with the leaf, flower and greeting to complete.

Until next time, Happy Creating!! Kx
