With today’s card, I was trying for something that could be “manly” or at least not pink and frilly. So, while flipping through my designer papers, I thought the International Bazaar pack would be a great one for the guys in my life.
I mixed and matched the papers from the pack in strips to glue down at an angle. I cut a piece of scratch cardstock that was 2.5” wide and then cut my designer paper strips to 3” long. Then I was able to glue them down at an angle so that the top left corner of the dsp strip was at the edge of my scratch paper on the left side and the bottom right corner of the dsp strip was at the edge of my scratch paper on the right side. Then, after all the paper is glued down, I could just trim off the edges and have my pattern good to go!
My sentiment uses the new Windows Framelits – so glad I got these! The one thing that did surprise me though was that the smallest frame is much smaller than the next size frame. But then once you are on the second smallest frame, they all are each slighter bigger than the one before.
And finally, I thought I’d leave you with the “girly” version I came up with when I was experimenting with my design. I used the retired Everyday Enchantment paper and some Peach Parfait for a brighter look. Kind of cute, huh?
