Since I wrote my first blog post highlighting cards Id made using design sheets created by the designer Rebecca Brindley Ive now passed the 20 sheet mark, including backing sheets and inserts, that Ive used to make cards. I therefore thought it was an opportune moment to look through my cards and select another ten sheets to highlight.
You will notice that some of these are matching backing, inserts or toppers to go with some sheets I highlighted in my first post of this designer’s work. Keep an eye out on CUP for toppers that have matching inserts and backing papers as buying all the sheets means that you can be sure of making a co-ordinated card. And don’t just think of only putting inserts inside cards, they can also be used as wraps or backing paper on the outside of cards. Have fun with your cardmaking.

Most of these examples were easy to cut out and make, mostly straight cutting although a few had a bit more intricate cutting out, such as curring around individual flours and butterflies (but these can be left off the toppers if too difficult for a person with dexterity problems). They are just a small example the cards Ive made using this designers design sheets.
