Sweet Vintage Cards

By Krissy Clark McKee

I was really inspired by the wonderful cards recently made by Nicole using Pink Paislee papers, and I decided to try my hand making my own cards using the sweet, almost old-fashioned looking papers from October Afternoon's 5 & Dime Collection.

The papers are perfect for adding stitching and border punched edges. And the cards from the Miscellany Kit or the Sticker Page make the cutest, best embellishments. I can't wait to send these cards to my friends!

Here are the other two cards I thoroughly enjoyed making:

I'll be back next week with more crafty fun with October Afternoon's 5 & Dime goodies. Until then, feel free to head over to the LCOM STORE and get some of your own 5 & Dime supplies to play with!
