This is made for Hero Arts Paper Tearing Challenge. I use one of the technique in the Video on Wednesday.
I really like Nancy's Video on Wednesday and I try to make a simple card using one of the technique she shares.
I teared a rectangle then use broken china to color the edge. I used pearlscent chalks to color the flowers to get a soft tune look. Hope you can see the shin.

2009 Xmas card (Mass-producing )

Close up at other designs:

Full picture of the 1st card:

I was planning to make the embellishment a semi-DIY element for my friends and they can decide where they want to put it.
This is for Merry Mass Production - A Bakers Dozen Challenge on Taylored Expressions
I made these cards for my mass-production Christmas card. I always want to make photo cards. All you need to do is stick the photo inside the slot.
Right before I ready to start, I receive the best gift in the world "Big Shot" Machine. I couldn't wait to play around with it and try to use it as much as possible. Here are the result.

I keep them all base on the same layout and change the paper and embellishments.
