Old Photos meet Altered Art

Okay, so I'm thrift shopping with a girlfriend and I find this little book
with old-time photos and sayings.
Hey, I can do something with this. I did!
The lace, ribbon, rhinestones, and glitter make a statement,
but I'm not sure what statement they make.

The first 3 cards are done with scraps.
You need 3 different papers.
The bottom of each card is embossed using the Cuttlebug after adhering all papers to the card.
The middle dividing part is with a Sizzix die or using border punches.
Easy and fun to make.

The card below is made using a Spellbinders die with my eBosser.
Took a few days to get the "rhythm" of the eBosser.
Used the Xyron machine to adhere the design to the card.
Glittered around the adhesive that seeps out with a powdered glitter.
Glitter doesn't show up well, but "in person" the card is spectacular.
