CDS and two floral cards...

Hi Everyone, well here are two more cards. I am going to make a set of these and a box or folder to hold them.
I am enjoying making some simple card edges with DS. It is good practice to familiarise and gain confidence with the program. Learning more all the time.
There is lots of support on messageboard with very caring sharing people who help out lots and whose blogs are well worth subscribing to.
In fact today I have spent more time cruising the MB and related blogs than doing anything else!!
Lots of fun.

Enjoy the cut file.

Happy scrapping

The scroll border cutfile...

CDS scroll border......

Here is a littel card I made. The border is the scroll from Joys of The Season. I used the hide contour feature to eliminate the bells and circels that were not required. I am happy to share the cutfile.

I will post it shortly.

Thanks for viewing my blog and I hope you have enjoyed it.

Improving my photos...

Here is a better photo of the cupcake card. I am having trouble with my basic photography skills...perhaps that is the next course I need to do!
I also had a lot of trouble finding greenery in the garden. It is so dry.

As promised plate stand & ricrac cutfiles

Cupcake calories...

I really enjoyed making this card. It was very fiddly especially creating the very tiny ricrac cut that is on the plate stand. It is so very fine. I did not have a brighter ribbon for the side of the card but might replace in with my next shop!
The scallop circles are nestibilities. I stamped the pink background on the white circle and then put it through the cuttlebug do folder. I just love my bugs!
The card is 6" square. The cupcakes are only about 1" so were quite fiddly as well. I bought a pack of paper designed for the splice which I do not own but the shimmer paper pack is just gorgeous. It also cuts very well on the cricut despite the texture and added shimmer.
I do not have a plate stand on amy of my 25 cricut carts so made this one on DS.
I will post the cutfile for this and also for the ric rac.
I am on holidays for another 10 days and can just play to my hearts content. Trouble is I simply don't know where to start!!
