something a little different...

although I usually scrap layouts, every now and then I like to experiment with cards. just the other day, I went crazy and bought a few stamp sets - mostly ones with "happy birthday" and "thank you". lately I have been creating a few of those cards, as they are really handy and hopefully the people receving them would like the handmade touch.

and here's a card I recently finished with a little vintage look (included a wax seal also)... experimenting with distress ink (distress ink and water for the background) and using the new tim holtz sizzix die (and trying out the distress embossing powders, wow... these are really different from the american craft ones).

supplies used include:
cardstock: bazzill basic; sizzix die: tim holtz; ink: distress ink - vintage photo; embossing powder: tim holtz - vintage photo; rub-ons: hambly - gold; pin: maya road; brads: american crafts; alpha stickers: making memories

thanks for stopping and all the wonderful comments... just love reading them :)
