Sketchy Floral Cards

I feel like I always make cards in pairs. It's not intentional, just works out that way. This time for a couple of family birthdays this month. Funnily enough I got the color inspiration from a piece of paper I ended up not using. 

The floral paper in the upper left is what I thought I was going to use and then ended up not. As I was staring more at the light blue paper with the black and white florals, I remembered some clear stickers in my stash and decided to make them the focal of  my cards. 


Supplies and Steps: 
  • White Stardream Cardstock 
  • Assorted Scrapbook papers
  • Clear Stickers
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities  Label Dies
  • Cuttlebug
  • Embellishments

Basic Steps: 
  • Cut white cardstock for 5x7 card, score
  • Cut scrapbook paper panel 4.75 x 6.75 and a coordinating piece 4x6, layer as shown
  • Cut 2 sets labels using Label Dies ; cut in half ; layer on top and bottom of 4x6 panel as shown
  • Layer clear stickers on white cardstock and trim. Mount to front of card using foam dots.
  • Embellish with self adhesive rhinestones, sequins, and Stickles 

I liked how the simplicity of the clear stickers went with the sketched look of the floral paper. 

For this one the stickers were one big cluster but I cut them apart and then re-grouped three of them together as the focal. One went directly on the paper and the other two I elevated with foam dots to give some dimension. Now I need to do something with the "inspiration" paper!

Anniversary Card in Black, Silver and Gold. Handmade Paper Is The Star !

25th Anniversary Card

Sharing a very quick Anniversary card I had to get out the door. Thankfully my paper hoarding paid off since this beautiful black and silver floral print handmade paper didn’t need much else!
Products used in this card:
  • Stardream Metallics gold cardstock
  • Handmade paper
  • Die Cutting Machine and Die (I used a Spellbinders die)
  • Glittered Stickers ( I used Thickers by American Crafts)
  • Embellishment ( 3-D sticker I had in my stash)
Spellbinders and Thickers

The card is 5x7. Cut cardstock to size and score down the middle. Trim handmade paper to 4.75 x 6.75 and trim cardstock scrap leftover from your card to 4.75 and adhere across middle of patterned paper.
Anniversary Card

For the focal, I layered a scrap of the patterned paper onto a piece of silver metallic cardstock and then cut the whole thing using my Spellbinders die. Added the Thickers glitter stickers to the front and adhered the focal to the card with a foam dot. Finished with a gold embellishment I had in my stash.

Die Cut Negative

This is the negative from that little experiment which I think I’ll use in another card!
