I seem to be living in the past in using all my older papers. I am determined NOT to buy any new ones until this "stockpile" of collections is reduced. Now really, why would I want the latest when I still have this. I LOVE this collection! Do you remember these gorgeous designs by Marion Smith for Prima called Romance Novel?
Seriously, I still have over half a package of the chipboard pieces, several flowers, and quite a few sheets of the papers.
They mixed wonderfully with these tiny two-tone pink rose buds I just got from I Am Roses. So instead of using my Prima ones, I went with I Am Roses and Petaloo. I layered them on some cheesecloth. Then I teamed them with leaves cut with Alterations Tattered Flower Garland and May Arts natural burlap string bows.
All the edges are inked with Vintage Photo Distress. These two white and grey papers (cut with Alterations Distress Doily and Mini Tickets) are Marion's downloads I bought a few years ago.
As I've been doing lately, I used a rather large amount of 3-D foam. (Just in case you're wondering about this excess of 3-D foam tape, my daughter bid on three enormous rolls on eBay and got them at a terrifically low price for me. I can now afford to be extravagant with the stuff.)
I always like to finish my cards inside, too. They seem more substantial that way.
Thank you for stopping by!
