Glitz Design - in with the old

Hello, hello! It's my time again to host the day on the Glitz Design blog, and I decided that I'd revisit some of the older collections, that I missed using.

On the first card, I went vintage and a wee bit sentimental, with the Love Nest line. I adore this sticker! An old typewriter plus type style font equals pure bliss in my books... A little shabby touch here and there (can you see the staples?), and you get a card perfect for a gal or guy! Even though there's lace, damask and a bow, the overall feel is not too girly.

Glitz Design "Love Nest " papers: Sky, Damask
Glitz Design "Love Nest" Titles Cardstock Sticker
Glitz Design "Scarlett" Journaling Cardstock Sticker

Other: cardstock: recycled kraft, white; ink: Distress Ink (Frayed Burlap); lace: May Arts; twill ribbon; vintage button; string; staples

I followed the fabby Card Patterns sketch 122:

The next one, I kept in a more upbeat tone - I wanted a birthday card and the Hoopla collection was a perfect choice. I let the papers play a role in telling a story, and used the top corner of the Cake paper, for a couple of extra sentiments. I added a fun sticker and a rub-on, and in result I've got a cheerful card, full of wishes :)

Other: cardstock: SU! (Kiwi Kiss), American Crafts (Black); baker's twine; sewing machine; buttons
