Card Duo by Katrina Thompson

Hello everyone and welcome to our creative journey for 2018.
It's fabulous to begin the new year with a new collection and today I have the soon to be released C'est la Vie Collection.

I have made 2 simple layered cards using the 6x6 pad and the ephemera pack focusing on the beautiful neutral tones included in this range. 

A few layers and a simple greeting and we are ready to spread new years joy!!







  • I have cut a piece of the fern print from the 6x6 pad, 9.5cm wide x 14cm high.
  • While trimming the fern print, I have used an off cut of the striped print from the reverse to create a decorative strip, 9.5cm wide x 1.2cm high.
  • I have selected the ephemera butterfly, greeting, tag and a large leaf, (cut from a pair).
  • I also had a chipboard rectangle that I had kept after using the greeting.
  • You can also trim the ephemera pieces a little further depending on the look you wish to achieve.


  • Ink all of your patterned pieces in a neutral tone and shape your butterfly wings.
  • For the greeting, tag and strip, cut a white layer giving yourself a border around the edges. Distress the edges of the white and attach the pieces as pictured above.
  • Attach the print to the A6 Cream card base, then the strip 3.7cm up from the bottom edge. 
  • Attach the tag into the lower left corner with 3d foam and embellish with the leaf, butterfly and greeting.







  • This is a print from the reverse of the papers that I love. Cut a piece 7.5cm wide x 15cm high.
  • I have selected the large flower bunch, greeting, tag, large leaf (cut from a pair from the first card) and the decorative medallion (that I have cut in half diagonally).
  • Again you can trim the ephemera pieces a little further depending on the look you wish to achieve.



  • Ink all of your patterned pieces and the A6 Cream card base in a neutral tone.
  • For the base print, cut a white layer 8.5cm wide x 15cm high. Attach the 2 giving you a white border  as pictured and attach to the card base.
  • For the greeting and decorative medallion, cut and distress the white layers giving yourself a border around the edges. For the tag, cut a cream layer, attaching the 2 with 3d in between.
  • Attach the 2 sections from the medallion at the top and bottom of the tag as pictured and attach the whole piece to the centre of the card.
  • Embellish with the leaf, flower and greeting to complete.



Until next time, Happy Creating!! xx
