Hello there! Time for another Craftyhazelnuts patterned paper challenge blog design team contribution… once again I delved into the old Making Cards magazine stash and made these two cards…
This kit was a difficult one to use as the patterned paper was actually 2x a5 pieces of dsp which had a mandala of sorts on it… so I played with layers and added doilies to make it a bit more special and then added the Happy Birthday sentiment die as the focal feature.
Each card I added a whole panel of the paper and then fussy cut part of the mandala out and added the doily as an extra layer. Then the sentiment I cut from the pink cardstock. One of them I added pearl embossing to the top layer and off set the white background… the other I kept as plain pink (Magenta Madness).
Both card I added card candi as embellishments and with the bold patterns taking over I called them done!
