Cards with patterned paper

Thursday, January 31, 2008

I made several of these cards the other day. I am trying to use more patterned paper on my cards. I get so inspired by the colors in the paper. I bought a pack of paper at Archiver's for 25% a while ago and I liked it so much I just couldn't bring myself to use it because I liked it so much. Well it is not doing any body any good on my shelf so here are a couple of the cards with a sheet of it.

I used the Take Three stamp set and my markers to ink it up with two colors. Then I used Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral and Summer Sun cardstock. I also tied some Chocolate Chip ribbon around the card.

Wow, I love these. Working with bold DP like that can be tricky, but you've done a great job, they are stunning! And the bottom card is very striking without DP! TFS!

Wonderful cards. I really like how when you make cards you often do a series of them.
