The same - but different!

I've been playing around with some of my snippets, using the same dies and layout to get two completely different cards, one with an autumn look and the other with a winter one. The die set is one of the docrafts Create-a-scene sets used with the Grand Calibur; I used just two of the tree dies and on one card I added the fox, on the other I added an owl which in fact came from another set in the same range. Scraps of patterned paper from a DCWV stack formed backgrounds to the two cards.

I'm particularly pleased with the effect of cutting one payer of trees with the woodgrain effect paper - what a pity that was my last scrap of it! I think I'll have to buy more.

I'm joining in with

Wow, Jane, these are both amazing! Love the different looks and that awesome die! The fox is a lovely addition to the Autumn card!

Liz said...

Brilliant cards, Jane. It always amazes me how different cards can look just by changing the colour schemes. xx

Both excellent . . .but particularly like the owl one!
