Today is rainy here in North Alabama. It is one of those dreary winter day’s that makes you long to feel the sun’s warmth. So gray and gummy…. As the blues set in here. The Pals Paper Arts has just the color combination to help bring us back from the blues. This is a beautiful Spring color combination of Old Olive, Calypso Coral, and Lost Lagoon. Kathy McGloin really out did herself!!!!
Brian over at Stamp with Brian made a beautiful butterfly card using Paper Placing. This is a fun technique that Brian warns Do not make this card!!! Loving his results, I had to give it a try! Some ideas just roll around in my head until they come spilling out.
I cut the striped scallop thinlits die with Calypso Coral card stock and was looking at it with Lost Lagoon and Old Olive when I remembered Brian’s card!!!!
What I did was cut the Striped Scallop Thinlist Dies with each color, Calypso Coral, Lost Lagoon, and Old Olive. Saving all the pieces. The second step was to glue the frame to a piece of whisper white card stock. Then just simply glue the extra pieces in place. The final step of the panel was to cut it down to show no white.
Layers, Layers, Layers!!! The more layers I added to this card really made it shine. It also really lends to different sentiments and placement for a clean card! The Thanks is adorable on the Wash tape punch!
The card base is a little different size. It is 5 by 4. So to make this size card just simply cut a sheet of card stock to 8 by 5. Score at 4 inches on the 8 inch side. The inside panel with the Striped Scalloped Die is 3 1/2 by 4 1/2.
The card base for the small thank you card is 3 3/4 by 4 1/2 . To make this size of card cut a sheet of card stock to 7 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches. Then score at 3 3/4 inches.
The three sentiments are from Helping Me Grow, Number of Years, and Watercolor Wings stamp sets.
