I was playing around with a card design inspiration from juliedavison.blogspot.com 04-10-10 post. I tried and tried but I didn't quite get the right look. Her example is much better. I love this CTMH Bella paper pack, and I had high hopes for these cards. I think the major problem is that I covered up too much of the only patterned paper on the card. I played around with different coordinating ribbons too. The organza is my fave, mostly because it allows more of the patterned paper to peek through. I used white daisies and glimmer misted them to match the patterned paper, and layered them with a tiny white daisy and a miscellaneous brad. The lines texture on the green circle was created on my scor-pal. The dots on the yellow circle where a sizzix embossing folder. I used a CTMH D1408 A little everything stamp for the tiny sentiment. I love Julie Davison example of textures and coordinating but varied colors. I hope you give this design idea a try, and learn from my mistake. Show more.... um, patterned paper that is. Enjoy!
I am addicted to paper crafting. I have been scrapbooking since 1995, but have recently become hopelessly enamored with card making, mini album making, and gift box making. I dabble on the Cricut Expressions machine and the Pazzles but no one item or process defines or confines my creative process. I must admit I spend too many hours perusing Pinterest, but I frequently scraplift the great ideas and inspiration found there. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy what you see and are inspired to go create something fun and fabulous.
