My all time favourite card design

Anyone who knows me or follows my blog will know that this just has to be my all time favourite design for a card. 

Whenever I get any new papers I always make a 9 square card design.  They look so different in different papers, you can add any embellishments and Im always pleased with the result.

So again I have used Sugared Almonds collection - I adore the soft pastel colours with the white foiling.  In the pack of Beautiful Butterflies you get 2 sheets foiled with messages and patterns and the other two are dotty!  How fab is that - I dont know about you but I love all things dotty.

Up close to see the finer details.  My all time favourite daisy punch created the dainty little flowers using the embossed cardstock and I finished the centres with crystals.  I also edged all the squares with Stardust Glitter Glue, adding even more sparkle.

This collection is so easy to create beautiful cards - why not go treat yourself!

The size of the squares are 4.5cm, this gives a border around the edge and between the squares on a Size 6 card.
