I just purchased some new dies and I've been chomping at the bit waiting to use them!! I always love incorporating patterned paper when I can, too! So, here's the card I made:
Here's how I did it:
I started with an A2 card base of kraft cardstock. Then I cut my banner die and "Absolutely" die out of the same kraft cardstock. The banners with patterned paper were cut from assorted pages from the charming MME Miss Caroline "Dolled Up" 6x6" paper pad. The banner was first assembled by adhering the patterned paper banners to the slightly larger kraft banners. The "rope" of the banner was adhered to the cardbase with foam squares underneath the bows at each end. The larger banners were adhered to the cardbase with foam squares. Then, the smaller patterned paper banners were adhered to the "rope" with Glossy Accents. ( I LOVE this glue!!)
For the sentiment area, I cut various strips of patterned paper from the same paper pad and arranged them on the bottom of my card base. The "Absolutely" die cut was glued on top of it all. I love how it stands out against the blue background. The "Amazing" stamp was inked with black ink and stamped on top of the blue patterned paper. Finally, adhesive pearls were added as accents.
Thanks so much for visiting, and I hope you come back again!!
