Lisa with some cards using Kaisercrafts' Tigerlilly

Hi Everyone. Lisa here. Today I am sharing some cards made using Kaisercrafts' gorgeous Tigerlilly collection. This has been quite a popular collection as who doesn't love butterflies! Not to mention the lovely combination of Pink & Orange.

My first card is actually a mini fold out concertina card. (Totally made up name...that's what happens when you make something up as you go!) Liz sent me some of the gorgeous new mini envelopes from Kaisercraft, so I based this around them.

The concertina folds out & I stuck some of the collectable tags on alternating folds, then stuck three envelopes & filled them with pretty journal tags & notes from the collection. I have also used the fabulous seals that come in the set as decorative seals for the envelopes. You can also see that I used bits & pieces from the sticker sheet here & there as well. I wrapped a piece of seam binding around it to gently hold it all together. Did you notice the seam binding has a tie died look? A gentle spritz & scrunch with Glimmer mist is the answer.

This card is a simple square card, where I really wanted to focus on the orange & black with one of the beautiful large butterflies from the Collectable packs. The papers I have used for both cards are from the paper pad.

My last card for today has more of a focus on the black & more muted tones in the collection. I really like this too as you aren't always aiming for a bright card. Sometimes its more about the soft prettiness. Its great when a collection is so versatile that you can achieve more than one look!

Hope you all have a great day. Stay tuned for the Echo Park blog hop, which we are all very excited to be a part of at Artfull Crafts. Watch this space for a chance to win some great prizes!
