Today’s card showcases a Designer Series Paper pattern mix. I always enjoy mixing patterns, and putting together today’s card is no exception. Before this card evolved, the only thought I had was to use a frame. I haven’t created a frame focal point in a while.

Not having an idea of which patterned paper I would use, I looked through what I had and the Night of Navy background DSP (from the Enjoy The Journey DSP pack), called to me. The Granny Apple Green pattern from the Dandy Designs DSP was my next choice. The decision to add another pattern and add a vellum layer came later. So, let’s make a card!

Today’s Card Pieces And Parts

  • Cut a Basic White card base 11″ x 4 1/4″ and score at 5 1/2″.
  • I cut the Night of Navy patterned paper layer 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. This will cover the card front.
  • The Granny Apple Green patterned paper layer is 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″.
  • I cut a small piece of vellum cardstock 2 1/2″ x 4″.
  • The small later of Regency Park floral DSP measures 2″ x 3 1/2″.
  • The frame and sentiment layer are die cut using my Stitched Rectangles Dies.
  • I punched a few flowers from the Regency Park Designer Series Paper.
  • The sentiment is stamped with Mango Melody ink.
  • I offset the layers for a little interest and attached the frame with Dimensionals.

The inside sentiment is stamped with Mango Melody ink. I also added a DSP strip and a punched flower.

So, pick a piece of patterned paper, add some vellum and a dimensional frame, and create a cute card to send someone a hello.

… the only limitation is your imagination!
