Silhouettes and String

Most of the elements of this card were custom requested (mandolin, banjolele, guitar, keyboard, family members, pop-up). The challenge was to find a way to get them all on the card without making it look too crowded! The conclusion was a two-color palette, with lots of layers, scoring, and string.

Envelope Book

The quest here was to find a way to use my larger prints, other than scrapbooking or collage. I tend to buy the slabs of paper, but only use the smaller background prints for my cards. This was a great way to make a dent in my paper stash, and now I can buy more, lol.
