20 days of paper projects – day 14

Today is Day 14 of our 20 day series of projects using patterned paper (also known as Designer Series Paper or DSP for short). This time our patterned paper  is cut at an angle to create a focal point for the card.

You can vary how much of the card is filled by the paper – here we covered approximately half in order to leave a little room for the stamped flowers, without crowding them.

The card base is an A6 portrait of Pool Party. A panel of Whole Lot Of Lovely DSP was measured and marked at the same point on each long edge and a (light) pencil line drawn down the centre before cutting the paper from each measured mark to the same centreline point. (Tip – if you make the pencil marks on the reverse of the paper you don’t need to erase them). This angled panel was then matted onto Tranquil Tide card with just the angled edges revealed. These layers were adhered to a card front layer of Whisper White card. Using Tranquil Tide ink, a sentiment from Number of Years was stamped below the angle and the leaves were stamped in the bottom right corner after first stamping off, for a lighter shade. Powder Pink ink (at full strength) was used to add the flowers to the leaves. Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon was wrapped around the layers before adhering them direct to the card front and a bow of the same ribbon was added with a Mini Glue Dot.

On the Whisper White insert, more leaves and flowers were added, as for the card front but allowing a little more to show.

Thanks for stopping by.
