I have a few more favorite things to add to my arsenal of supplies. The company Crafty Secrets has a product called Journal Notes and they are indeed a crafty secret! This pad is filled with vintage images to make quick work of beautiful cards. One part of the page is the image and the other part is a place to write a few words or maybe even a grocery list.
The snowman card I used the image and the journal area as part of this card. The bow I tied with my new bow easy. I added some clear stickles to the snow line to add sparkle to the snow.
For this angle image, I used a metallic paper for the background that I embossed with my cuttlebug. I mounted the sentiment (also part of the journal note) with silver brads. I again used my bow easy for the small white bow.
Both of these cards were created for challenges on splitcoaststampers.com.
