I really enjoyed these paper packs from Meg’s Garden, which are specifically designed for Card Makers. They come in packs of 12 (2 of each design) 6″ x 6″ papers. Each one is truly pretty.
This is a card from the Rose Quartz collection: Finished card is shown next to the card pack.
To begin I cut the 6″ x 6″ paper into three sections and glued them to a co-ordinating piece of cardstock. The design on the paper is a cherry blossom twig, so I punched out some small flowers from the left over pieces of paper and following the design on the paper, placed the flowers along the twigs. I laid some ribbon trim down the vertical length of the card and trimmed off tiny flowers from the same ribbon to place in the centre of each punched flower.
My next card is from the “Watercolour in Blues” paper pack.
This is a really simple card to make as I used the beautiful design on the paper as the focus of the card. I matted it onto a piece of pale grey cardstock. I stamped a verse and heat embossed it, then added a few tiny diamonté to finish the card.
The front of my next card is also from the “Watercolour in Blues” Paper Pack:
Again quite a simple card to create allowing the design of the paper to be the focal point. I cut a small framed rectangle to one side of my square card so that the selected portion inside the card would be exposed.
The paper used on the inside of the card comes from “In the Watercolour Garden” paper pack. So with the addition of the greeting and a few sequins and diamontes, my card is finished. I love the music notes on this paper collection.
I hope you enjoyed these cards and were inspired to have a go at making your own cards using pretty paper as your inspiration.
I have another two packs of these lovely papers to play with, and will do another post when I have more cards to show you.
