Layered cards are my new “go to” when I hit a crafty block, you don’t need much inspiration around you to make one. You just need some nice paper and a sentiment to bring a beautiful card front together. Or as I chose for this card, an excuse to use some paper that I hadn’t used in a while – Playing with Patterns.
I love Playing with Patterns, the paper designs and the rest of the suite are really fun, bright colours that suit a number of happy occasions. In the past, I’ve used it for birthdays and as a card to remind someone how fabulous they are – which is also the sentiment being used today.
After choosing three patterns that I felt would go together best, I layered up the card finishing it off with some resin dots, popping some of them where I felt they lined up with the pattern of the card. You could go one step further here and colour in the sentiment letters, but on this occasion I chose not to.
Hello everyone, hope you are having a good weekend! Thank you to everyone who joined me on my Facebook Live yesterday, where we made a birthday box for a set of Derwent Pencils. This gorgeous box fits a tin of 6 Derwent pencils, a lovely gift for any occasion.
This project heavily features the Playing with Patterns suite using the Designer Series Paper, a ribbon from the combo pack & the Resin Dots. I kept the box simple, letting the decoration speak for itself. The paper pattern I chose allowed me to use one of five colours, so I went with Coastal Cabana.
The ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment from the Many Mates stamp set fits nicely into the 2″ circle, leaving room for some embellishments and a pretty to finish off the decoration. My daughter was very pleased with the end product, gifting the box to one of her friends.
