This week’s theme challenge at The Paper Players is “harvest.” I reached for the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, which is where i picked up this background paper AND the sweet pumpkin. In fact, the pumpkin image is found on the backside of the fun, graphic paper. Which to use? Both! Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Paper. You know how you find a piece of printed paper that you love and that you don’t want to cut into because you want to wait for just the right project? That beautiful print deserves to be honored on a project that you love, so you treat it with the utmost respect? This page of little squares from Painted Autumn is one of those pages for me. I love the modern design with this crazy-beautiful color combination (Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze and Soft Sky on a backdrop of Very Vanilla). Here’s a look at the other colors and pages in this stack of paper:
- Dimensions. As I layered this card, one panel on top of the other, I tried to balance the colors in such a way as to perfectly showcase this Designer Series Paper and these colors. This layering can work for other projects, too! I’ve created a diagram of the layer sizes for you:
- Colors. I just love that this paper includes Soft Sky – it’s the unexpected friend in the small crowd of colors. Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango and Early Espresso are expected (and still loved) guests on this Autumn paper, but Soft Sky is such a gorgeous accent. If you like this combination of Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango and Early Espresso, please save this:
