Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper November Challenge

Hello crafty friends! Over at Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge, the only rule is to use your patterned paper. As always, I try to make sure that my design team card really showcases some amazing patterned paper.


Supplies used:

This card started with the wonderful background panel. Both layers of the panel came from Park Lane's Forager paper pack (retired)--the pink (top) layer was die cut with Gina K Design's Master Layout 2 die set's second-largest stitched rectangle die and the bottom (wood grain) layer was die cut with the largest die in the Gina K die set. They were glued together and set aside.

 Next, I created the squirrel by stamping Waffle Flower's Home Sweet Home stamp set with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink on watercolor paper and then heat embossing with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder. It was then colored in with a variety of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then ink blended on the bottom part of the acorn with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Ink to help make the color a deeper brown. I then fussy cut the image and set it aside. 

The sentiment was created by die cutting a piece of Tonic Studio's Craft Perfect Honey Gold Mirror Cardstock with a hello die in my stash.

To assemble the card, I added a roughly cut white piece of glitter washi tape along the bottom third of the card panel. The sentiment was glued over the washi tape. I added some dimension by gluing two pieces of scrap cardstock behind the squirrel in the acorn and then glued it to the bottom left part of the card. Sequins from Catherine Pooler's Providence sequin mix were glued next to the squirrel and the sentiment. The panel was glued to an A2-sized white card base. To finish the card, I decided to add a little color by ink blending around the edges of the card base with the residual brown ink left over on my ink blending foam.

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