This week’s Paper Players sketch is super-simple, which gave me permission to make a five minute card. It didn’t have to be hard, but I allowed myself to play with paper to create a super-fun card. It might have complicated things a bit, but I still love the simple outcome of this card. Here’s my card:
- Creating Fun Stripes. At first glance, you might not see why this card took me so long. Here’s why – I cut up a gorgeous piece of Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper (I love these colorful stripes!) to create a different pattern. I simply cut the paper vertically (against the stripes) and then lined them up on another piece of cardstock, staggering them just a little to create a very different pattern. Here’s a look:
- Birthday Memories. Do you love this piece of paper? The Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper is filled with great patterns and wonderful colors – and several of the Birthday Friends Framelits Dies coordinate with images in the paper. Love that! Here’s a look at the Birthday Memories Paper:
- Time to Celebrate. The bold sentiment from Celebration Time on this thick, white panel is a perfect offset to the intricate background. I love this fun sentiment – while the Celebration Time bundle is both wedding- and birthday-themed, it can be used for almost any occasion. Here’s a look at the Celebration Time bundle:
