Today I have my Card Patterns card for sketch #71
I used some older Cosmo Cricket papers on this card. I wanted to add a little texture so I did some paper piercing around the edges of the papers. I made the rosebud flower with three paper flowers. It was easy to make just pinch the flower into a rosebud for the center and then glue layers around it. I distressed the edges of the card with So Saffron ink and used scissors and nail file to give a rougher edge.
I wanted to highlight the colors of the papers so I used the black cardstock to bring out their vibrancy. I love the texture of the papers. Not to mention the embossed and glittered papers they have! Fun stuff! The sentiments are from "book page" that I cut out. Lots of great phrases, sentiments, and more on this piece. I have more GCD Studios to share throughout the month so please check back. The theme for the month is birthday parties with lots of emphasis on fun and soft colors. Pop on over to see the circus tent card with a free template to make your own by Heidi V. Fun indeed! Thanks for stopping by!
