Kraftin' Kimmie's June Previews - Thank You Trinkets!


Hi all you crafters out there!  I hope life is treating you well.  Today is the first day of Kraftin' Kimmie's June Previews leading up to the release and Krafty Blog Hop on Sunday.  These trinkets are all so cute and can be used as the focal point of your card or as your sentiment or just a point of interest.  For my card I cased a lovely card sent to me for my birthday by my dear friend Connie.  I'm afraid my second picture with the card open does not show the trinket very well, but I couldn't seem to take a picture where everything worked together.  Guess I have a lot to learn about photography!!

The only papers I used were a 12 x 5 1/2 piece of S.U. Tea Party D.P. for the card base and a piece of Wild Wasabi matted onto white for the sentiment layer, also a small circle of white for the trinket.  The pieces of striped paper used to decorate the front were just the scraps cut from the top edges.  So easy! 

If you head on over to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog, she will show you which of the other DT members have trinket cards for you to see.  Tomorrow we will be previewing some new Lulu stamps, so be sure to come back and check them out.

Till then, happy hopping and crafting,

Diana
