Jan: Take one sheet

of this beautiful Pion paper that Jean has in the shop along with these stunning images and you can create the most gorgeous cards.

This is a simple card using the papers and images and embellished with those lush cabochons.

 Next is a pretty acetate card which is tricky to photograph. 
You make a concertina card base by folding a strip of card (mine is 10.5 cm x 12cm scored every 2cms). Fold a piece of acetate 10.5cm x  28cm in half to form the cover. Make a hole in the top of the acetate so that you can thread through the ribbon. Stick one side of the acetate to the edge of the concertina base. Decorate a tag, thread through the ribbon and secure with a bow. Then stick down the other edge of the acetate to the base. I have used a decorative border to hide the sticky tape.  See easy peasy.
Finally a sandwich board card courtesy of my friend Jo .
These papers are a joy to work with. They are so pretty and such delicate colours. I know you will enjoy playing with them too. So don't dither they may not be in the shop too long!


  1. I can vouch that they are fantastic......beautiful creations using them Jan !

  2. These are lovely cards Jan and the papers are perfect for vintage themes. I love the sandwich board card too. I've never seen one of those before.
