Cards from magazines

Thank you, Martha Stewart! I got a free year's subscription to Martha Stewart Living (I can't remember how, but it was an online freebie for something), and I was very pleased to find these gorgeous images in one of my first issues.

I got this idea to use magazine pictures on cards from another blogger whose ideas I just love. Check out her post about it here. I'm more into frills than country, so mine look a little different than hers. :)

Supplies: paper (American Crafts); ribbon (Michaels $1 bin); embossing folder (Cuttlebug Textiles); fleur de lis edge punch (EK Success); brads (Dollar Tree). NOTE: I gave the brads two coats of that pearly nail polish I got for just this purpose (I don't paint my nails). They don't look exactly like pearls, but they are beautiful! CARD SIZE: 6x6"
