I’m beginning this Monday, the second day of July, with a technique using gorgeous Designer Series Paper named Share What You Love. Can you see the six different patterns I used to create this card?
After looking through the twelve patterns that come in the pack, I found five scraps from previous projects, and lined them up in a pleasing (to me) manner. Using the Stampin’ Trimmer to cut 3/4″ X 4″ strips, I glued them to Whisper White cardstock.
The three words I chose are from the Celebrate You die set. And, “celebration” happens to be the theme for the 400th challenge at Paper Players. That’s a huge amount of inspiration passing through their site! Congratulations to the team, and all of the participants!
For this 400th challenge, my idea needed a frame. I used a retired Project Life die to cut the frame from Soft Seafoam cardstock. Before gluing the three words to the center section, I embossed it with the Subtle embossing folder for some texture. I really like how the loop of the “g” is over the “ate.” I can’t take credit for that, because it happened naturally when fitting the words in their space.
The outside section of the Sea Foam frame was covered with the sixth pattern from Share What You Love Designer Series Paper. This double layering made the frame sturdy for placing on Adhesive Strips, adding dimension. The card base is Soft Sea Foam (matching the center section), which is becoming one of my favorite, new colors.
The final touch was the “pearlized” flower I hand cut from one of the patterns, and added it to the frame. When the light catches it right, it shines brilliantly.
Other than the frame, the products I used in today’s project are listed below. Thanks for checking out my paper words. I hope it was inspiring!
