Collage Cards

I'm so excited to announce that Kate Crafts has invited me to guest design for her from time to time. Her Etsy store is full of beautiful printables, so be sure to stop by and check it out. I printed off a couple images from their Christmas Journal Pages and one of their Vintage Newspapers for today's card. (Note: I usually insert the images into my word program and reduce their size to fit on an A2 card front before printing them out.)

 I started by ink smooshing distress inks on watercolor paper and adding just a bit of text. Next, I tore the vintage newspaper print in half and layered it behind the winter scene. The sentiments were part of the FREE WINTER PRINTABLE Kate Crafts shared on Facebook. I added a black border using the Crochet #2 dies, some jewels, and a snowflake die cut to finish them off.

Lovely creations. I'm liking the grungy feel of your card and the way the black die cuts pop. Apologies for the late comment. Thanks for joining us at Die Cut Divas.
