How is it the beginning of March already? Wow this year is going so fast already.
So as its the first of the month it is time for my playtime with patterned paper.
Those of you who have popped by my blog for this before will know I got myself super organised last year, chose some 12×12 dsp and got fussy cutting and popped all the bits into a pouch so I could be ready to go with the starting point of a card! This time it’s an odd one as the dsp I cut up had lots of these labels on one side and the coral pattern on the other and I teamed it with some dictionary type print paper too.
So I grabbed some Pale Papaya cardstock and made up a card blank and used another piece to add texture then started layering up a few of the labels, a strip of the coral and the book paper.
This gave a nice spot for a focal feature to be added and I decided on a jar full of splendid Stems!
I did punch the jar a few times to give it some dimension and covered the top layer in wink of Stella so it’s very shimmery!
Inside the jar I added the die cut Stems and one of the stamped images which I stamped and coloured onto the bookprint which I think looks fabulous!
I finished off with a simple sentiment from For my Family and some pearl gems and a bit of twine wrapped round the jar.
Love how this finished up. A lovely mix of modern and vintage I think!
