Pattern Papers

I have so many pattern papers that are so gorgeous and beautiful that I think it is high time I start to use them for card making. I tend to stray away from using them and they need to be shared as they are so wonderful. So with that in mind I made this card.


It is a very simple card with the pattern paper cut on a curve with a Spellbinder A2 Curved Borders One die and then with another die from that same set I cut a Gina K. Designs Fresh Asparagus card stock border. This combination in turn was placed onto a Gina K. Designs Honey Mustard card base. Inside I did add a White panel for my written or stamped message that I will add later on. I then finished the card by stamping the sentiment from the Gina K. Designs Bitty Blossoms Stamp set using Gina K. Designs Almalgam Obsidian ink and then placing various colors of rhinestones along the curved border. Those rhinestones are from my stash and I have no name brand for them.

I am entering this in the Gina K. Designs Monthly Challenge and also in the Dies R Us Challenge #128-Nature.

I hope you are having a good Labor Day holiday. We are all alone here so it has been pretty much like any Monday. But that is okay too. Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit and for the wonderful comments.

God bless,
Verna

Oh, I love this so much! You know how I feel about patterned paper, but also don't use it as much these days. I don't want my love of PP to be replaced by inky backgrounds and stenciling and CAS. Surely there's room for all of it. This is so cute, Verna! Love how you added the rhinestones.

This is gorgeous! I love the fall colours and the way you die cut the layers. The rhinestones are the perfect finishing touch.

Hi, Verna! Don't you just love this SB die? The sweetness of Fall in your pattern paper flos perfectly with your rhinestones (so exceptionally placed). What I especially ike are the shapes of your trees combined with the fullness of your pattern paper, "slimming down" to become a trunk at the base, with just enough room for your sentiment! It's a wonderful creation! hugs, de
