Poppets for Girls and Boys

Hi all!  Today I have cute Poppet cards from Crafter's Companion for both boys and girls.  I used the same simple design for both cards and got a totally different effect.  I'll start with my ballerina card.  These stamps screamed colored pencils and gamsol to me, so that's what I did.  When I want a vintage look, I tend to reach for my pencils.

The card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I had gingham strips that I'd purchased many moons ago and I wanted to use them for this project.  I layered the strip with pink cardstock to match my base card.  I layered my image with pink cardstock and added pink glitter over the cardstock edge.  Pink pearls finished off the corners for my simple layout.

I used the same layout for the inside.  That pink and silver paper really shines.

I used the same layout for my schoolboy card.  This time, I rotated the image long-ways on the card.  I used my colored pencils again for the image.

Here's the inside.  I added a handwritten sentiment to complete the card.

Happy Crafting!
