Patterned Paper Focus


This card features a patterned paper as a focal point. I liked it so much that I did not bother adding a sentiment on the front. I left it for the inside (a birthday card). You can do this with all those kits that include matching patterned paper or even use your scraps.

Sorry about the short post today, but I'm tired.

Thanks for visiting my blog and enjoy your day!


Card Instructions
  1. Make an A2 card with spring moss cardstock.
  2. Trim white cardstock into a rectangle.
  3. Trim strips of patterned paper and apply to white cardstock.
  4. Add a scallop edge border.
  5. Tie ribbon into a bow.
  6. Adhere to card front using foam adhesive.

SO pretty! I love all the patterned paper cut at that angle, I'll have to try this! Your pictures always look so clean and crisp, do use a light box or do you just have very good lighting?

Gorgeous! What a great way to use up left over bits of patterned paper. I'm always stuck with slivers of paper and I hate to throw anything away. Thanks for sharing this!!
