Kitty's Scrap Post September DT Projects
Altered Cards
Well its that time again...I would like to share some lovely projects from Using the Time Traveller and Hallow's Eve digital Scrapbooking paper and kits!  please check out Luisa's store on Zibbet as well
Below you will find my 2 Cards that I have created, both are unique and both are something different than a regular card. The first one is made with the Hallow's Eve Paper, which is a Halloween Themed paper. I just love the colours in this paper, it has a lot of  blacks, browns, tans and orangy rusts.
I have used a Gina's Design Chipboard Door for the front of the card.
I fussy cut out the eyes from the paper line, that are peeking out at you!

All the laces and trims are from Luisa's kits from her Zibbet shop, she creates the kits to match with the papers, and they are just super amazing to work with!
Below is one side of the inside of the card, here you can see I fussy cut out the pocket watch and embellished it with flowers and a metal butterfly that I made to look rusty.

 Top of the door on the inside of the Card....
View of both sides inside the card. I created a little pocket on the right hand side with a tag I cut from the paper line, this is where I will put my sentiment before I sent it off to a friend!

My second card is an Easel Box card. I really loved making this one, its with the Time Traveller paper, and its something that has a dual purpose, its a card but also you can tuck a little gift inside the drawer.
Here you can see the hot air balloon I cut out from the paper line, I also cut out the vintage dress, tag and butterfly as well.

Side View of the Box card. You can see the gorgeous laces and trims from Luisa's kits here as well.

Inside the card, here is where I will write my sentiment before I sent it off to my friend. I used a wooden dressform from my stash, some flowers and of course more of Luisa's beautiful trim kit.

With the drawer open...
