I was reflecting on the outrageous number of cards I've made. I was the kid whose dad always found a "better" job so I had friends in many different places. I was also the kid who spent her babysitting money on stationery and postage stamps. So I guess it's no surprise that I ended up being a papercrafting!
It was my love of cards that led to this card assortment packaged in a gorgeous tin box I gussied up a bit. (Spray paint is my middle name Which was pretty awkward at my high school graduation! Buh-dum-dum.)
All the cards were made from the Club Scrap "Literature" kit although a few embellishments came from my stash, and I also used dies to give a couple cards more personality.

I added a little watercoloring to this sheet of fantastic cardstock. (above and below) I also added clear Wink of Stella to the flowers and the butterfly, but I don't think the picture did it justice!
I wanted the container (right) to be more permanent that a cardstock folio, so I rooted around in my "I can't possibly throw this out; I know I'll need it for something someday" bin and came up with an old hinged box. I spray painted it in brown to coordinate with the cards. I added a bit of ribbon and Bob's your uncle!
For the card above, I added clear gems that I colored red with Copic markers. I also added white faux stitching around the outside to draw more light color from the center.
I"m kind of hooked on my old art air tool. Lots of wide open spaces on a card make me itchy, so I often spritz (see the card above) to give it a little something around the edges!
The "Alice in Wonderland" card will be going to my co-worker at the Junior High School. It's a perfect card for a librarian!
