Nicecrane GDT - Loving Xmas Wishes

Hello, everyone!  I had the pleasure of being a Guest Designer for Nicecrane Designs this month - thank you, Ignacio, for having me!  Here is my final card and it features an adorable image from the Vintage Funny Kittens set. I inked around the edges with distress ink to add a vintage look.

I started with a card base I received in a goody package I won last month over at Cosmic Colours (thank you, Colette!) - I thought it was perfect for a vintage card! Then I had fun loading it up with all kinds of crafty goodness!  Here's a list:

  • Patterned Paper:  MME
  • Ribbon: Trim (May Arts), lace (The Ribbon Girls), twine (My Craft Spot)
  • Die cuts:  Ivy Strip (Cheery Lynn), Tiffany Frame and Cherise Label (Memory Box)
  • Accents:  Poinsettia (Recollections), tags (in the goody package from Colette mentioned above), charm, gem/pearl strip (my stash)

Take a look at all the fun images you get in Nicecrane's Vintage Funny Kittens set:
