Creative Cards #3

Hello Bloggers

I strayed away from vintage, flowers & shabby chic & dived into the grunge category & actually had fun. The Slightly Grunge Paper Collection was used on all 3 cards

Card #1

Materials used:
Black cardstock with a group of ephemera from several collections, a clock charm,
 tag tied with jute string - no inside deco done, Frayed Burlap distress  ink
Lots of foam mounts on all cards

Card #2

Materials used:
Black & cream cardstock
Slightly Grunge Paper Collection
Jute string
Scraps of burlap
Ephemera from several collections

The Slightly Grunge paper was distressed & Frayed Burlap distress ink used on the edges
The ephemera were tucked into a vintage envelope which was slit

Inside of card: Lt - Tags, ephemera, burlap, a chinese charm
                        Rt - tags, ephemera, postcard, vintage trinket

Card #3

Materials used:

2 layers of Slightly grunge paper - 1 between black & chocolate cardstock, the other on top

close up

 Inside the card - on the left the coffee jute is wrapped around from the front & added to the top of the pocket on the right side

 The little book has 2 areas on its front for tucking in tags, ephemera & journaling

inside the book is room for pics or journaling

 The other side has a pocket for tags & journaling

 I call this gentlemen Great Uncle Henry - but it is simply a postcard I purchased at an antique shop

Hope I have given  you some ideas on 'inside cards'

Bye for now
