DT: Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge

Happy new year! Let’s hope 2022 is kind to us all!

I’ve kept on with my DT contributions for Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge and decided this year to get a bit organised and have put aside specific papers from the old Making Cards magazine stash. I had too many still hanging around so have decided to just get things made… and to decrease the decision making I’ve put specific papers aside for each month… let’s see how that goes shall we?

So for January I have some stylish fashion images and black and white papers to play with.

And I grabbed the sewing machine and made two cards.

I even decorated the inside and the envelopes.

I teamed the images and papers with purple and cerise cardstock and black too of course and added some die cut stars as embellishments.

I love all the sewn details. I think it works well with the focal images.

Sentiments were from a range of sets including Artistically Inked, Biggest Wish, Tidings and Trimmings and Picture Perfect Birthday.

Inside the card I added a scrap of the paper and another star and a sentiment.

The envelopes I used a strip of paper across the front just to add some fun!

Hope you pop along to Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge blog and join in yourself. I bet I am not the only one with a stack of paper to be used! This year I am determined not to buy any new. I have too much already going unused. Wonder if I will stick to it or not?

  2. I love the graphic look of these cards, and the bold look that the gorgeous fashion images form against the bnw backgrounds. Gorgeous cards, Catherine!

  3. Wow, the sewing really compliments the paper, like the design.

    Thank you for sharing your project on the Cut it Up for our birthday card challenge.
