I saw this idea on Patty Bennett's blog and she saw the technique on Cindee Wilkinson's blog. I loved the way the flower and butterfly from Beautiful Day looked using the Painted With Love Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!
The backgrounds for the cards come from the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack. I've used these cards for backgrounds before and just did some coloring on them. To see that post, click HERE.
I began by stamping the Butterfly and the Flower from Beautiful Day onto Painted with Love Designer Series Paper with our Memento Black Ink and then fussy cut them with my paper snips. I did try to cut them out with my Scan & Cut, but it didn't see the lines - I think because of all the colors.
Melon Mambo - 11" x 4 1/4", scored and folded at 5 1/2"
Calypso Coral - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack - trimmed to 5 1/4" x 4" (the 4" is the width already)
Within the card pack there are some laser cut words and some banners you can also stamp on and then simply add them to the cards.
Big thanks to Patty and to Cindee for sharing so that I can CASE and share them too!
Happy Friday! Thank you for looking in today. Have a great day!
