Shangri-La Cards

My friend Ale, from Alessandra Designs, created this beautiful kit called Shangri-La.  I've had it for a couple of months but just have been side tracked with other projects.  Normally I would have used Ale's kit for digital scrapbook pages, but I just loved the papers so much I wanted to see how they would look as greeting cards.

I cut the lady and tiger out and then recut out just the lady and popped her up for dimension.  I added some glitter gel pen to the leash and glitter glue to her fur on her outfit.  I'm liking the finished effect.
This paper I'm totally in love with, the snowflakes are just so very very pretty.  I decided it would make the perfect card to give with a gift.  I took Ale's snowflake and reprinted it and covered it with silver glitter.

This last card is my favorite, it is so soft and gentle looking.  I took the bird and reprinted, added the silver glitter and popped him up on a metal branch.  The sentiment continues on the inside saying - Our hearts, our prayers, and our love are with you, this is a rub on from My Sentiments Exactly.  So simple and yet it has such effect.

Don't discount digital kits, they give you so much added flexibility in your card designs.  Ales' designs are here at Digitals, please check her store out.
