Kanban Yvette Jordan Flamenco card

I made this Flamenco dancer card for an 18th birthday girl, who had a Spanish themed party, using Kanban Yvette Jordan sheet YJPCT006, pictured below. I used a fairly large card (7 x 10 inch), and very little further embellishment was needed to complement this beautiful topper, just a couple of mats cut using Grand Nestabilities and co-ordinating ribbon and bling.

In keeping with the simple style of the card, I used only one layer of the additional decoupage, which was just enough to give a 3D look.

Kanban Bella Fiori cards

These cards are all made from one of my favourite Kanban collections, Bella Fiori, most of which is still in stock at Foil Play, although a few sheets have sold out, including the Bella Rosa, featured in a couple of these cards.
As you can see, I like using 8 x 8 inch cards and the Bella Fiori toppers are the perfect size for these. I also used some of the foiled border strips from the topper sheets.
 The topper sheets used were: Sarafina, Veronica, Bella Rosa and Della Rosie.
I also used co-ordinating Bella Fiori card: Lauretta, Le Fleur, Magnolia Dreams and Rosie Scripts. One A4 sheet divided into three and with corners rounded made enough mats for three 8 x 8 cards.
Add a little toning paper, sentiment and an embellishment or two, and the cards were complete.
