Hi everyone! It's me Gabrielle here with you today to share a couple more projects with you as January's guest designer for Cheery Lynn! I don't know about you but I find I am always in need of thank-you cards, I like to take the time to send a card to show my appreciation to someone.
I wanted to get some extra use out of that cute lattice piece I got in my last CL order so I thought I'd use it like a window design on a whimsical style card featuring fairies and flowers.
For my flowers I just layered a couple of the Sweet Williams floral dies, inked the edges with a little chalk ink and glued some flower stamens to the centers. I wanted to continue the light filligree look so I used the leaves from the Flourish Leaf strip in white and the Lace Corner Deco in white. I used papers from Graphic 45, Prima and Bo Bunny. I gave the whole thing a more tattered look by tucking in bits of muslin (cheese-cloth) here and there.

The funny thing is, once I get started playing with my pretty Cheery Lynn dies, I more often than not find that I can't just stop at one card! I get a few ideas going at once and therefore ended up with an extra card this week! :)
For this card I wanted to play up the delicate gate die! I just love the super fine design on the Ornamental gate and I thought it again played well with the Graphic 45 window design in their patterned paper.
I used adhesive foam dots to create pocket design behing the gate, I find the shadow this creates gives a nice 3D look to the card. I also used another one of the Lace Corner designs I used in the top card for this one.
I used one of my all time favorite CL dies, the Fanciful Flourish as a 'stem' for my floral arrangement and again used the Sweet Williams Strip for my handmade flowers but in this case I curled the petals to create more of a rose look tothe blooms.

I hope you enjoyed my projects today and hope that I've inspired you to get out your Cheery Lynn dies to play today! I look forward to sharing another project with you all next week! xo
