Seasons at CD Sundays

Today it's time for my next GDT post for CD Sundays, and this time our theme is SEASONS - either one season of your choice or all of them.

I was spoiled for choice when I loaded up my Crafting World CD "Through the year with Seraphina" as there are lots of images and backgrounds for each of the four seasons of the year, but with Spring not TOO far away now, I decided to  use this lovely image of kite flying on a blustery spring day. I love the little touches like the spring flowers in the corner and the pretty backing papers, and I was really intrigued by this topper set that has one fully coloured image printed like a completed jigsaw, one without the jigsaw lines but in a fainter print and one separate set of jigsaw pieces.

I decided to use the bold jigsaw image on the card front: 

The paler image on the right hand flap:

And add the jigsaw pieces, all cut out, in an envelope in the inside centre panel:

So the recipient can take them out of the envelope and assemble the jigsaw themselves on the paler image.

I would like to share this with:
Alphabet Challenge - X for Xtra Fold
Ooh La la Creations - In the Country
Fan-tastic Tuesday - Make it Girly

Love this card Jane. Of course I saw it a while ago and I was so impressed that I purchased a jigsaw die cut and have already used it. Great fun. Thank you for your super GDT cards.

What a great idea Jane. I must say you do often come up with some really interesting ideas. I love this one. It's not not CD O have so guess another on the wish list!!! Love the image too. Thank you for being an inspiring GD at CD Sunday. Wynn DT

Jane Willis said...

LOL, I'll just sit here and giggle at you two while you get yourselves sorted out, all the while smiling smugly as if I never make a typo!

What an incredibly sweet little image and a lovely idea to include the pieces inside. I have a jigsaw die and use it on shop bought cards that I receive - when the occasion is over of cause. Barbxx

Oh Jane, I had totally missed this one! It's terrific and certainly takes my idea that bit further. How clever!

Kath said...

Like Di - I had missed your jigsaw card (just seen Di's post on her blog) and love your card. Fabulous idea to add the pieces in an envelope so the recipient can make the jigsaw themselves as well.
