TSC Wednesday... Polar Expressions

Good morning! It's really hard to get into the Christmas mindset when the temps are still over 100, but Stacy and I thought we'd give it a try anyway! For today's TSC {The Scrapbooking Cottage} Wednesday, we are featuring Imaginisce Polar Expressions. Be sure to visit Stacy's blog for more inspiration and to see what her latest store specials are!

For my first card, I used Cindy's sketch, C4C4, as it was perfect for what I had in mind before I started. I added some stitching and a lot of edge distressing for a vintage look. Finally, I sprayed my image panel with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist (but that is almost impossible to see in the photo).

Next I went from vintage and layered to clean and simple! I used Fall to Layout #61 and created a simple, Post Office-friendly card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
