I created a sheet of collage to use for making cards. I had such fun making the collage! I collected everything I could find that seemed half-way suitable!

I mixed "Yes" paste with a little bit of water and glued everything down with this mixture. Then brushed over everything so that it would stay in place. The watered glue dried clear and seems to be holding everything down.

I made a easel card base. Cut a card front to fit and layered all the pieces on the card front. Then assembled the card.

I used the "Mary Jane" image from COUNTRY LIFE. The image, shadow, and all layers are cut at 3 inches. I cut mulitples of everything...just in case I made a mistake and needed an extra!

The sentiment and layer on the card front "Old Fashioned" is cut at 3/4 inch. The sentiment on the bottom portion "Warm Wishes" is cut at 1 inch. The sentiments are from COUNTRY LIFE, too.

For some reason, I can't seem to get a clear picture of my card. As soon as I can, I will get a clearer picture of the card...

I probably will never create this particular card again. However, I am already planning my next Collage meets COUNTRY LIFE card!

I have more information and photos on my blog!

Thanks for looking!

Oh, my goodness! You just don't know what this compliment means to me! Thank you so much for your kind words!

I cut out another section last night and made a second card. I am getting ready to post this one, too. I turned the collage board over and cut out another randomly chosen section. I couldn't believe how the new section looked when I turned it over! It was perfect for a second card that I had in mind!
