Quick and Easy Collage Cards...an Oxymoron!

Collage cards are difficult for me!  I have trouble making decisions about what to use and how to layer!  So, I use reference magazines and internet websites to get inspiration.  However, I have found a fabulous resource for collage cards...with very little layering and embellishments!

DCWV "The Heirloom" Stack!
Carolyn, from Carolyn's Creative Corner, with you today!

I saw this stack in Joann's on Saturday and immediately knew it was a wonderful resource!  The pages are designed for scrapbooking, but I could see beautiful cards in the images!  I hope you agree!
I also bought this great collection of clear sentiment stamps by Fiskars.  The sayings seem to reflect the images in the stack!
This is a page from the stack.  I created two cards from this page.  I am saving the chandelier!
All the papers are from the stack. 
The "layers" are printed on the paper!
"Inspire" is from a sheet of sentiments included in the stack.  Twine was added for interest.  All cards in this series are 5 inch x 7 inch when folded.
This card was created using another corner of the same paper.
The Tower is cut from a sheet of images (total of 3 sheets) included.
Page of coordinating images!
Crossword puzzle fun...
...helped to create this card for a "Scrabble" addict! :0)
A beautiful page for journaling...
...or another card!

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you have been inspired to create collage cards!
