Two Cards Made with Free Papers

Here are two cards made with the free papers from this month's Papercraft Inspirations magazine, on sale here in the UK on the 3rd August, one month later in the USA. I downloaded the papers from the website, I like doing this because you can print the papers out onto substantial weight cardstock, have a browse around, there are some beautiful designs up for grabs there, I particularly love the safari papers

I freehand cut a very random flower, then some circles which I scrunched up and snipped.....
I printed the sentiment circle out three times, cut out the white inner circle and stuck it on with pop dots to the red scallop, then cut out the ladybird and popped that up too, ladybird is covered with glossy accents

Love this bee paper, all papers and sentiment downloaded as before. The stem of the flower is a border that I pleated before attaching to the card. I cut a scallop circle with a Go-Kreate scallop die and inked the edges with a brown cats eye chalk ink. The border was done with Martha Stewart embossed zigzag punch

The bee is a Go-create die, isn't he cute? I gave him some rosy cheeks with chalk

the sentiment was one of many on the download, I did 'what's the' on the computer. All the papers will be in the magazine, or pop over to the website and take a look

Your cards are fab En! I love the flower you made on the first one and how creative you are with the layered sentiment and the bee is so cute on the second one! I agree with you about the free papers they're great but I always download them to print on better paper/card too

Enfys, these are just soo cute! I love the papers, we always have to wait for the magazine to reach us. I like the idea that they are free, and you can use your own choice of cardstock. TFS
