Papertrey Blog Hop: Patterned Paper
Welcome to Blog Hop! This month's challenge was to build your own patterned paper using any of Papertrey's fantabulous stamps. What a fun challenge! I chose to start with the dashed background from Background Basics: Retro and used the dotted line and one of the solid lines from Faux Ribbon. I used these three stamps to create my patterned paper. It's sort of a springtime plaid and I love it!
I rounded the corners and adhered that layer to a Spring Moss base. Then, I took a strip of coral cardstock and stamped it twice with the scalloped image from Beyond Basic Borders. I used a strip of Lemon Tart Twill tied with a knot to hide the seam. That was then added to the patterned layer.
My focal point is the wreath and berry image from Rustic Branches stamped in Spring Moss and Melon Berry inks. I added the sentiment from Limitless Labels in the center of the wreath to sort of fill the space and give the card a purpose. I cut out the wreath and mounted it to a scalloped circle of Spring Moss cardstock before adhering the whole thing to the base with foam tape. A little glitter on the berries and this card was finished!
I hope you've all enjoyed tonight's card. Try building your own patterned paper...it's a whole lot of fun!
