From Our Heart to Yours - My style

This week we are sharing our individual "styles" at Heart 2 Heart.  If you haven't already guessed, I am a distresser....Almost always I age the paper or distress the project in some way.  I can stare at a piece of bright paper for hours and get no inspiration from it, but let me add some distressing and my creativity runs wild!!

I adore the new Kraft die-cut cards and envelopes (Z1474) since they start out nice and brown and ready to age.  Throw in the Vintage look of Father Christmas (D1449) on a tattered piece of cardstock and the card screams old and distressed.  The background of the card is stamped with The Season Defined (retired) then I added some wooden buttons (Z1387), pin clips (Z1612), teeny red sparkles (Z1326) and a Prima flower to dress it up a bit.  One of the great things about the Kraft cards is that they are 6 X 6, so you can easily adapt your favorite layout to make a card.  My card design is an adaption of Magic: On with the easier can it get....right?

Whether you choose my card to "case" or one of the other design team members I can't wait to see what you share with us at Heart 2 Heart.
