Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper June Challenge

Hello friends! Over at Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge, the only rule is to use your patterned paper. I wanted to share a couple of cards I made for Bring Smiles to Seniors, an organization that distributes hand made cards to seniors who might not be getting mail (either at home or in elder care homes). I have recently started also sending letters through their organization to elders who live at home but also would love a card, and so wanted to have both a happy birthday and hello card ready to go for this month's donations.



Supplies used: 


 Card #1

The background panel was created first by die cutting a butterfly piece of paper from Prima's Painted Floral 12 x 12 paper pack with an A2-sized stitched rectangular die in my stash. The edges of the panel were ink blended with Dried Marigold Distress Oxide and heat embossed with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder

Next came the sentiment. This was created by stamping the hello sentiment from Simon Says Stamp's and CZ Design's Clean Line XL stamp set with Wow! clear embossing ink onto a previously watercolor smooshed paper in my stash. The sentiment was then heat embossed with Ranger's Copper embossing powder. The sentiment was then due cut with the corresponding die from Simon Says Stamp's and CZ Design's Clean Line XL die set.Two additional die cuts of the hello sentiment were cut out of scrap cardstock with the same die. Finally, all three layers of die cuts were glued together for dimension and set aside to dry.


The circular die cut came next. A piece of striped patterned paper from Prima's Painted Floral 12 x 12 paper pack was die cut with the smallest die from Pinkfresh Studio's Diagonal Stitched Circles die set. The edges were then made a little more sparkly by ink blending with Dried Marigold Distress Oxide and heat embossing with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder.

To assemble the  card, the sentiment was glued onto the circular die cut. Since the die cut sentiment was a little bit larger than the circular die cut, the sentiment hung off the edges. The circular sentiment was then attached to the butterfly panel with Altenew's Instant Dimension Foam Tape. Sequins from Catherine Pooler's Manhattan sequin mix were glued to the butterfly panel. Finally, the whole panel was glued onto an A2-sized white card base.


Card #2


This card was created in a similar fashion as the first. Again, the background panel was created by die cutting a piece of blue floral paper from Prima's Painted Floral 12 x 12 paper pack with an A2-sized stitched rectangular die in my stash. The edges were heat embossed with Ranger's Copper embossing powder. 

 

The sentiment was created by stamping the happy birthday sentiment from Simon Says Stamp's and CZ Design's Clean Line XL stamp set onto previously watercolor smooshed watercolor paper with Wow! clear embossing ink. The sentiment was then heat embossed with Ranger's Copper embossing powder. Finally, the sentiment was die cut with the corresponding die from Simon Says Stamp's and CZ Design's Clean Line XL die set. A second piece of very light pink patterned paper was die cut with the same die and then colored with both Catherine Pooler's Party Dress ink and a bright yellow Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker. A third die cutter of goldenrod patterned paper was also created with the same die. All three of the sentiment die cuts were glued together so that the bright red/pink and goldenrod papers peeked out of the top of the stamped sentiment. These stacked die cuts were then glued onto the blue floral panel. More sequins from Catherine Pooler's Manhattan sequin mix were glued onto the floral card panel. Finally, the whole panel was glued onto an A2-sized white card base.

Thanks for reading! We hope that you can join us this month at Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.
