WCMD Follow-Up

Hello, dear readers!  It's great to catch up with you again.  Today I want to rewind to the beginning of the month, to show you what I made on World Card Making Day (WCMD).

Now, I did share a card back on WCMD, but that was one that I'd made in advance, so that I could post it right away on the morning of October 4.  Later that day, I did get a little time to create, and I made two cards.  They're both very feminine cards; I guess I was feeling girly that day.  Both cards are also made with scraps.  Here's a closer look...

Supplies: kraft cardstock from Neenah Paper; green cardstock from Bazzill; striped/label paper from Pink Paislee; Russian doll paper from Kaisercraft; ribbon from Scrapbook Fantasies; sequin from Natalie May etsy; sentiment stickers from October Afternoon.

I had recently been working with the Kaisercraft "Hidden Treasures" collection for my CPC design team work, and I had some scraps left over.  "Hidden Treasures" includes a lot of Russian dolls images, which I love, since I collect Russian dolls.  I hadn't been able to work any Russian dolls into my CPC layout, so I decided to make a card with a doll as the focal image.  Now that cute Kaisercraft doll graces a card that wishes someone a "perfect day." 

Supplies: stickers & rub ons from My Mind's Eye; papers from Graphic 45; cardstock from Bazzill; ink from Tsukineko; tulle from Wyla; sequins from my stash.

I had also been working recently with some My Mind's Eye and Graphic 45 papers for my Color Room palette 172 entry, and I used the scraps from that project to make another card.  This new card is a Thank You card with an interesting shape and a cute fairy focal image.

The idea of using up scraps to make cards is certainly nothing new, but it's something that I don't always have time to do.  It was very gratifying to finally have the chance on WCMD.  It was also fun to play around with feminine focal images.  Which one do you like best--the doll or the fairy?
