Avonlea Thanks Cards

I thought it would be fun to share some cards made with the Artiste cartridge and Avonlea papers.

The Avonlea paper packet is one of three in our Autumn/Winter Idea Book that features "off-palette" colors. In other words, there are cardstock and B&T paper colors that can only be found in this paper pack! This includes:
Avonlea Off-White
Avonlea Teal
Avonlea Green

So if you want additional cardstock in these colors, you simply need to order another paper packet! I'm certain you will want to stock up because this is such a beautiful and versatile paper packet! Over the next week, I am going to share some artwork I created for our convention to introduce this paper packet back in the summer. Here are some card examples.

I used the card on pg. 65 of the Artiste handbook and scored the bottom so it could stand up! Finished size is 6" x 5" (not scored is 6.5" x 5"). The bottom flap folds up to tuck into a half-circle cut out which is hidden underneath the flower.

I used some of the Avonlea coordinating Canvas Shapes with some 3-D foam tape and inked the edges with a little bit of Slate ink.

Here is the card open:

Here is another version with the Avonlea Papers using the Avonlea Teal B&T paper:

I added flowers from the Artiste cartridge pg. 44 - Accent2 - using Creme Brulee cardstock and Avonlea Off-White cardstock with a little added bling!

Here is the card opened:

I am IN LOVE with this Avonlea paper! You can do so many different things with it! And the Artiste Cartridge has ENDLESS inspiration! Have you used the Avonlea papers yet? If not, click here to get yours today!

I'll have more artwork to share tomorrow!
