Hi everyone, I think we sometimes fall into the trap of thinking that patterned paper is only for backgrounds or highlights on cards and scrapbook pages. Whilst it is true it can be used in this way, we can also chop it up and use elements to enhance our projects or, like on the card I’m sharing today, to be the main focal point of our project.
I started by cutting out two of the same flowers from one of the patterned paper sheets from the Wonderful World Designer Series Paper pack (which is part of a bundle you could earn for FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration). Next, I created a card base from Thick Basic White cardstock. I then cut a panel of Basic White cardstock and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Stitched Greenery Die.
The sentiment, from the Charming Sentiments stamp set, was stamped in Versamark on Smoky Slate cardstock. It was white heat-embossed before I die cut it with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouette dies (the stamps and dies are also available to purchase as a bundle at a 10% discount).
Next, I assembled the card. I did pop up one of the flowers from the second image I had cut out to give it a little more interest and dimension. I also popped up the sentiment too. I thought the card needed something extra so, of course, I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers. A few pearls finished off the card perfectly.
Here’s the card…
This was a quick and easy card to make Given the patterned paper sheet I used has many other flowers, it will be so easy to make up a lot of quick and easy cards just like this one.
If you need any of the products from today’s card, you can find them in my online store.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
