CARD DETAILS

Patterned paper is something I rarely use simply because I love to create unique things and with patterned paper it’s not that easy, unless you are using patterned paper from Concord and 9th. The front of each sheet from the Floral Fill-In paper pad coordinates with a stencil. If you lay the stencil on top it matches perfectly, you don’t have to look for a particular flower, it has all been thought through. And on the back you have regular simple pattern. So this is a great paper to customize and make your own.

I started working on my cards by adding color to the flowers through the solid layer stencil. I used Velvet Orchid ink color from Simon to do my ink blending and brought color to my images from the outside in a sweeping motion, this way I was able to keep the center of the flower a bit lighter and the edges darker.

Next I removed the solid flower stencil and attached the detail flower stencil. I added detail using Wisteria ink color and blended it rather heavily onto my paper.

I went back to my original stencil and blended clear embossing ink to be able to add embossing powder and do emboss resist. I used Hero Arts Sparkle embossing powder to not only add shine, but also a bit of shimmer to my flowers.

After creating the resist layer for my flowers I blended Duckling and Maliblue ink colors onto my background to add a bit of color to my paper. I also mixed the two in a few sections to create hints of green.

I trimmed my paper to 4 x 5 ¼”, adhered it onto a piece of cardstock to add sturdiness and foam mounted it onto an A2 top folding card base made out of Simon’s Fog cardstock.

Lastly, I placed detail stencil over my paper one more time and added a generous layer of Tonic Glimmer Paste in Moonstone. For my sentiment I heat embossed Always Here For You” message in white embossing powder and foam mounted it onto my card.

One last thing I did – I covered little gray dots on my patterned paper with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White – I didn’t want to have as much gray on my background, so I added white dots instead.

You can by all means simplify this background by skipping a step or two or you can make it even more complex by adding some additional details. Have fun!
