I have been in love with Crate Paper for years! I'm also in love with anything vintage, so when I can combine Crate Paper and Vintage I'm really in love! I got these awesome Restoration Collection papers and I've really, really enjoyed creating with them. I created the vintage layout of my aunt and uncle and I still have a lot of pieces left. When I find a collection that I love, I use every last little piece. You'll be seeing it on ATC's before I'm done with it. Here's the card that I created today:
This might look vaguely familiar because I used the playing cards and the dice again (I also used them on the layout). They are each on a whole 12 x 12 sheet of patterned paper. I cut them out, individually and layered them under the flower. Speaking of the flower, I recently received some beautiful handmade flowers from my friend Lyla and this is one of them. It just happened to match the papers perfectly. I added the "have a great day" in the center of the flower, though. It was just a little something that I already had.
I entered this card in Stacy HW's Cards & More Challenge Group at Sketches4All. Her challenge was to use Stripes and/or Spots on a card. I thought this polka dot paper was perfect for her challenge.
Here are a couple of close-up pictures of my card:
I mainly wanted to show off the beautiful, layered yellow flower. I'm SO excited to have some new flowers to play with! I mentioned that Michelle had sent me some in a little exchange we did and now I had an exchange with Lyla - so thanks, girls! I LOVE getting rid of some of my "stuff" and getting somebody else's "stuff". How fun!!!
My Crafter's Companion March Guest Designer blog post is going to go live in the next few days, so I'll keep you informed on that. I've done two tutorials on hybrid card making.
We also have the March Sketch Layout Challenge going on at Sketches4All through March 31st. The winner (which will be randomly drawn) will receive Nikki Sivil's "Get Well Soon" kit!
