This afternoon I started out with a sheet of the new Watercolour Perennials Collage Paper, a box of ribbons, stick pins, cardstock, charms & more goodies - these are the results.
The 1st project is a card using pale sage green cardstock. The fold is not centred - this allows lace & pearls down the inside right side to show. I cut out the large image with the Primulas (Primula from the Latin primus meaning first - first to open in Spring), added some dimension with green paper leaves & then embellished with pink organza ribbon & a silver heart charm.
The inside of the card uses the same image but a smaller version from the 4x12 strip. This is mounted on a heart doily (new to the shop) with a pink double sided satin ribbon bow, a filigree charm, a heart charm & a torn distressed saying.
The 2nd project is also a card which also uses both the larger & the smaller images of Penstomen flowers on a pale grey cardstock. The front of the card pic is mounted on pale pink cardstock. A violet bow using 2 different ribbons completes the simplicity of this card. Another pic shows the front with a gorgeous blue bead.
The inside of the card is also very simple & is embellished with a butterfly charm
The 3rd project is a tag using pale sage green cardstock, a heart doily & a small image of Phlox. The tag is done using:
A Pin of Jewels with a pink bead & pink organza ribbon
Same Pin of Jewels with a green bead & blue organza ribbon
Both the organza ribbons are tied in double bows - this is a great effect when using a thin organza ribbon.
You could also do the inside of the cards with a pocket & a tag.
This paper lends itself to using many different ideas.
What's next on the list:
Currently working on the Christmas Shop - should be done in the next 2 weeks.
Projects on the list are using the Accordion Book Kit - possibly an Alice, a Lavender & Lace or maybe a Travel Book. Possibly all 3. We will see
Bye for now
