Hello readers. Hope you are well. It is the first of the month and so it is time to play with patterned paper again for my design team contribution for Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge.
At the beginning of the year I decided 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?
This month it was these delicate floral papers and images.
Once again I created two cards… both with one piece of the patterned paper and two of the focal images.
I used a die I have had for a long time and rarely used which is a cover die that cits out lots of little rectangles and squares.
I die cut it from both the patterned paper and some lilac cardstock and created the backgrounds in reverse.
I love this two in one effect and may well use it again to create some more from this set of papers before the end of the month if I get a chance. I then created the toppers using different dies from the stash, including the flourish dies from Crafters Companion.
I also added a piece of the lace as an added texture underneath the focal images.
I finished with sentiments from Picture Perfect Birthday which I die cut and some pretty lilac sequins
I also added banner strips to the envelope fronts and the inside of the cards. I also added some more flourish die cuts and a sentiment to each of them inside.
Really pretty finished cards. Love the texture and the die cut elements.
