One Design - Six Different Cards

Every now and then I have a day in the studio that just feels right.  I spend hours playing and in the end I think "that was a good day's work".  

Creative Impressions embellishments worked really well here.  The little black frame popped on a frayed white bit of crinoline fabric, framing a glittery white butterfly fastener.  The butterfly wings are bent forward a little for dimension.  I stapled my "birthday greetings" from Creative Impressions message twill ribbon.  I absolutely love these ribbons.  A "impressive" selection and variety of messages makes them a real asset for your stash.

The paper is an all time favorite, Tim Holtz' "Wallflower Paper Stash".  The different colors and graphic elements in the pages called for a different spin on each card, but using mostly the same design elements.  The TH Botanical die cuts are a nice complement to the Wallflower papers.  Great way to use up your bits that you can't bear to throw away!

Monochromatic cards are always a favorite in my classes.

Some cards have a library pocket on front containing a decorated tag.

I love the matte, muted colors in Creative Impressions new button collection. 

I hope you're getting some play time and finding that satisfaction that comes from adding just the right embellishment!
