 Once done it was just a matter of embellishing
 I blinged the layout with glass glitter and beads

now a couple more close ups of my card pack:

I used a transparency, which I embossed, as a base layer. 
I love the textured layers.  


I used the same image across the pack with different sentiments.
 Such a fantastic option to give me a selection of cards as required.

 Here are 3 but the pack in made up of 9 cards, should keep me going for a few months.

Can't wait to hear what you think and to also see your creations.

happy crafting.
