Variations on a Theme Day 2

Ok so if you read yesterday's post you'll know that I'm having a whole week making a set of matching cards. When I say matching I don't mean all the same, Oh no no no!!! I've never made two cards the same, I don't think I'd enjoy it. They will have papers from the same collection, and images from the same set too but the layout will be slightly different each day.

Take a peek at yesterday's, keep it in your head and then look at this one......
Do you see where I'm going with this? Similar but different right? I tell you what, it makes card making so much more enjoyable when you give yourself a basic starting point to work from.

I used the Holly at Work download from the Holly & Madison collection for this one. Again the papers are from my Amy Butler Lotus mat pad. The base paper is K&Co Wild Safron. Papers and downloads are all from my favourite online craft store Charmed Cards and Crafts.

I paper pieced Holly's skirt, I love doing this to match the bacground papers, it really brings it all together.

Please join me tomorrow for the next installment of Variations on a Theme if we all snuggle in here together this British winter might not feel quite so bloody cold!

Thank you for commenting on my Batman card! Would it be good enough to post on the Charmed cards website - I notice there's a customer gallery?
