Patterned Paper for Card Making
Hello Everyone ~ I love using Patterned Paper for Card Making as it makes crafting a card quick and easy.
I got everything I needed to design completed yesterday. I have the bedrooms ready and today I will work on my great room. It won’t take me long so I can then spend the time while I am waiting for Jake to get here working on blog posts and other things I have to do.
I was so excited as I thought I had everything I needed to design finished about 3 yesterday. Then I realized my Hand Stamped Paper Crafting Challenges design card was not done. I headed back to my studio to make this card.
Our challenge this time is a sketch.
Since I was strapped for time, I knew my patterned paper would come to my rescue. I looked in my catalog and when the Art Gallery bundle came up I knew the coordinating patterned paper would come to my rescue.
I chose 2 patterns that I could pair well and started working on my card. For my flower, I took my colors from the patterned paper. I did change it up a little as I did not like the So Saffron and Bumblebee combination. I opted to use So Saffron and Crushed Curry and love how it turned out.
I wanted the flower the main focus of the card so I used the Layering Circles to cut the circle and the scalloped larger circle to the bottom layer. I think it really places the emphasis on the flower.
To put my card together, I added my patterned papers to a layer of coordinating card stock. Now all I had to do was follow the sketch and assemble my card. Here is my Patterned Paper for Card Making interpretation of the sketch.
I have used patterned paper quite often in my crafting. Here is an idea that uses the same paper as I used today. Here is a video idea that uses scrap strips of patterned paper to make this card super cute!
This bundle and paper retires at the end of the month. Here are the supplies so you can order them and make your version of the card. Click the image and add it to your cart.
Make sure you go over to the Hand Stamped Sentiments Paper Crafting Challenges blog to see what the other design team members created. We would love to have you play along with us!
I hope I inspired you today with my Patterned Paper for Card Making idea. Have a Terrific Tuesday!
