Patterned Paper Hello

Patterned papers can make some really pretty cards. These two cards were made from the same cardstock with different vellum and glitter cardstock embellishments.

The paper used is from the Paper Studio Antiquity 12″ x 12″ Paper Pack.  I cut a strip 4 1/2 x 12 of each paper and then die cut them using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX die.  I wanted them to have a diagonal visual interest and so I pulled out my Lawn Fawn Stitched Border Die to die cut the angle, this ensured that edge would have stitched detail as well.  To separate the two patterns of paper a thin strip of Bronze Paper Studio Glittered Cardstock was adhered on the diagonal edge with Be Creative Tape.  I find this works best when adhering glittered cardstock.

An A2 top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs Base Weight Ivory Cardstock.  The Patterned Paper was adhered to the front with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

For card #1 I die cut the My Favorite Things Plentiful Petals dies from Ivory Vellum and adhered them together with a little Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive in the center.  This would be covered up the by center of the flower, which was cut from the bronze glitter cardstock.  For added dimension a decorative bronze gemstone was added to the center of the flower.  It was adhered the card front with liquid glue.

Simon Says Stamp Painted Hello was die cut from the glitter cardstock, and another three time from scraps of ivory cardstock, adhered together with liquid glue and then adhered to the card front.

For card #2 I die cut Simon Says stamp Calliope Flourish twice from both vellum and glitter cardstock.  They were adhered together by adding liquid glue to the center of the flower and adhering them together a little off set, with the vellum on top.  The flourish was then adhered with liquid glue along the diagonal.  Gold Rhinestones from my stash were added to the center of the flowers to add visual interest and hide the liquid glue.

This time the Simon Says Stamp Painted Hello was adhered to the bottom right of the card front.
