“Hello SCT friends, and Happy World Card Making Day! Sheri Reguly here.
To help celebrate the occasion, I created a “just because” card to share with you using Pink Paislee’s, Whimsical collection, by Paige Evan’s. This is such a fun collection to create with! So many gorgeous colors, and playful patterns.
After creating my 4.5”x6” card base from white cardstock, I selected two of my favorite patterns from the 6×6 paper pad to incorporate into my design. I opted to use the colorful hex pattern as my background, and the multi-colored stripes with gold foil as my accent paper.
I trimmed the hex patterned paper to 4.5”x6”and adhered it directly to my card front. Next, I centered and adhered a 4”x3.75” block of white cardstock to the upper portion of the card front. A 4.5”x1” strip of striped patterned paper was then adhered directly below the white cardstock. A gold foil zig zag sticker was adhered along the top edge of the striped patterned paper, and a white/gold hearts sticker was adhered to the bottom edge. (*tip – the white/gold heart sticker wasn’t quite long enough to fit the entire width of my card. I did a simple cut and adhered the two pieces separately, one extending to the right edge of my card, and the other to the left.)
The puffy sentiment sticker “hides” space where there is a gap between both portions of the border sticker.
I then selected three 2”x2” patterned paper swatches from the swatch pad, layered them, and adhered the combined piece to the center of the white cardstock using adhesive foam. This piece was then embellished using a combination of cardstock and puffy stickers. A gold enamel dot adhered to the center of the flower and a coordinating gold paperclip added the perfect finishing touch.
