Tin of Cards Work of Art

The Tin of cards set (p 110) is still on my
top 10 favorites list.  I love being able to create a squiggly shapes
or just a little squiggle on a card.  The sentiments are also
very handy.
In this sample, I used the squiggle to make a frame and then
repeated the sentiment.  I highlighted the sentiment in
Watermelon wonder with the Work of Art set (p 118).
I added stars cut out with the Stars Framelits (p 173)
and Itty Bitty Accents punch set.  The strip of DSP 
comes from the Timeless Elegance DSP pack on p 143.

This is the third card from the Cottage Greetings kit,

I used the sentiments from the Tin of Cards photopolymer
set on page 110.

Cottage Greetings Card Kit

 The Cottage Greetings Card Kit, described on pages
94 and 154 of the main catty is a wonderful value.
It enables production of 15 cards for $16.00, plus a
coordinating stamp set.  Page 94 offers the Cottage Greetings
set which is designed for use with Cottage Greetings.

In this example, I used the Tin of Cards set (p 110) instead.
The Cottage Greetings cards are very sophisticated looking,
with wood veneer (poplar) sheets and silver foil envelope inserts.
Currently, this kit is backordered because it is so popular.
You might consider putting it on your "must have list",
for future reference.

I will post the 3rd card from this kit later.

Good As Gold Butterfly

I love to purchase Simply Sent kits from the SU
Clearance rack.  They are wonderful kits and very handy
to have around.  This dotted DSP background is from the 
retired Good as Gold Simply Sent kit.  I used the smaller
butterfly from the Bold Butterfly Framelits on page 172,
to cut out a butterfly.  I place a piece of Gold Foil (p 148)
behind the butterfly and then glued it down.  I added
the gold cord and "merci" sentiment from the kit
and glued this layer down on an Early Espresso card base.
