Card Ideas using the Cinema Chic Card Toppers

When these card toppers came in I just loved them and couldn`t wait to make some cards but I had to think for a few days to decide just how to put them together. Sometimes it is all about what you use in the background to coordinate with them.

I have put the products I used below.

I used a sanding block to distress the edged slightly as I didn`t want to matt all the pictures as they stand alone quite well.
