When it comes to pattern paper I am a hoarder! I love the designs so much that I am afraid to use them because once I do, they are gone… I rather have them sit neatly in my drawer, so I can take them out and look at them whenever I want :-). But let’s be honest, their main purpose is to be used in crafting and I have to get a grip and use them! So, for today’s cards I went ahead and used some:
On a piece of white cardstock, I stamped the penguin from the stamp set Toboggan Together, the small cake from Elphie Selfie and the large cake from Bake Me Cake (all stamp sets by Lawn Fawn) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured these images using my Copic markers. The colours I used are:
– penguin: N6, YR15 (beak and feet), R20 (cheeks)
– small cake: E25 (cake), BG 49 (frosting), Y15 (candle-light)
– large cake: E25 (cake), BG 49 (frosting), Y15 (candle-light) and C4 (cake-stand)
I then die-cut them with their coordinating dies, except the large cake – for this, I did some fuzzy cutting.
On two pieces of white cardstock, I used the embossing folder Graphic Impressions – Birthday by Taylored Expressions. I trimmed off a few millimeters on all sides and rounded the corners with the 1-inch Mini Corner Rounders by EK Success Tools.
On one the embossed papers, I die-cut a circle using one of the Circle Stackables by Lawn Fawn.
The pattern papers I used are from the paper packs Pint-sized Patterns and Perfectly Plaid Winter by Lawn Fawn.
On the last card, I added some twine in the colour Hot Cocoa by Lawn Fawn.
I want to use my pattern paper more often in future projects. They look much nicer on cards and other projects than in my drawer, don’t you think?
Thank you for stopping by! See you soon!
