Colouring Fun

April 20, 2021

Yesterday I share some cards with you I cased from Jan Ewan, well I loved how easy and how beautiful these cards looked. So as the True Love Designer Series Paper is just so beautiful, I thought I would spend some time colouring the design patterns and creating some more cards. Once more I cut two pieces of patterned paper from the same design.

I used both sides but I coloured the floral side using combinations of Highland Heather, Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Petal Pink and Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends.

I attached each piece of Designer Series Paper to Basic Black card and then Basic White card which I embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I attached a strip of Basic Black card across the centre of the card front before attaching to scored and folded Basic Black card. I stamped the greeting from the Forever Blossoms stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and punched out the greeting using the Double Oval Punch. I attached the greetings to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a narrow strip of Basic Black card behind one long edge of a narrow strip of True Love Designer Series Paper. The Designer Series Paper panel was attached across the bottom of Basic White card. I created five different versions of this card using five different patterns from the True Love Designer Series Paper.

Don’t they look pretty. Which one is your favourite?

Bye for now,

    Kris, beautiful cards, love them all. I loved the red and black, but your colour combinations are perfect. Love the Cased layout card. Will have to make these.

    Hubby’s choices are the center one and the one to it’s left. My choices are the 2 on the left and the one to the right of center.

      Thank you Tracey, I’m glad you and your husband like the cards. I think I agree with you though, I’m not so keen on the busy designs.
