New Collection!

Louise Brigden has created a FABULOUS new collection for you all, namely the "Love & Marriage" Dottie and George collection. Hugely versatile, this bundle comprises images relating to love, engagement, wedding, anniversary, new baby, Christening.

Here are a few cards I made for the last Dottie's World Challenge where the requirements was "Aperture, Ribbon & doodling":

This first card has a square aperture behind which I placed scalloped squares embossed with my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. The two papers used there are Basic Grey Blush "Sweetie" (the pink paper) and Imaginisce A Shore Thing "Getting Hotter need Water". The latter paper also covers the main card. Basic Grey Urban Couture Velvet Rick Rack, K&Co Hearts, Doodled Heart border, and last but not least "Puddle Love" image from the new Dottie & George collection completes the card. The layered image has largely been coated in Glossy Accent to enforce that "wet look"

This second card was just a quickie. It's quite a big card (A5) and it, once again, demonstrates how versatile these images are when it comes to resizing to your need; I was able to size this gorgeous "Dottie & George in Love" image to fit exactly inside this large oval aperture.

Doodled scribble border and organza ribbon. The butterflies are K&Co Smitten.

Everything is of course available at Charmed Cards & Crafts.. Click the download button for all the Dottie and George downloads.

That was my comment that I've deleted cos I didn't realise you had more than one card on the same posting!!

Im loving what you're doing with the new and fab downloads from Lou. They certainly are fantastic for re-sizing aren't they? (((HUGS))) xxx
