A Crafty Secrets Day



I have a paper pad from Crafty Secrets that I haven't used in while, so I dug it out today to play with. I used the Classic pad, it's available on Stampington.com in their store and also through a couple of sellers on Ebay, I'm not sure which stores carry it though. Anyways... the paper is a really pretty double sided, vintage looking paper that goes great with their vintage images pads.
-
Card #1 - I combined both sides of this vintage wallpaper looking paper to create this card. The roses portion of the paper was a border, and I trimmed it down a little for this card. The butterfly is a CTMH stamp that I bought ages ago. I colored it with pastel chalks for a soft look. The gold glitter if from Martha's new line, and it was applied with the fine tip glue pen.
-
Card #2 - I combined this pretty aqua colored paper and used both sides of the double sided paper to make this 6x6 card. The inside "card" has a vintage baby image on it that matches perfectly. The inside flat card will slide out of the pocket sewn with pink cardstock.

Which one is your favorite?

I'm gonna choose #2. I'd sure love to see the inside- it sounds really neat. I'm a sucker for real sewing on cards.

So hard to choose! I think I like #1 better, with its lovely combination of patterns and textures.

Both cards are fabulous, but I think I'm drawn to #2. I like the layout and the ribbon treatment a lot. Who can resist pink ribbons? :)

I absolutely ADORE them both! I think I love the colors a tad bit more in the bottom one though--but both are amazing!

Both cards are awesome but I would say that #2 is my favorite. The colors are beautiful and all the additions just add the "wow" factor.
