Paper House Productions makes beautiful supplies for all kinds of paper crafting and cards is one of my favorites! Today I am sharing a couple of summer cards over on their blog!
I have had this base paper sitting in my pile of “I have to use this paper because I love it” papers for a while now. It was the perfect time to make a summery card with it. Using a needle and various colored threads I added handstitching to the flowers - adding some unique texture throughout.
I then went in and added some buttons, puffy stickers, and enamel dots to create a clustered look around the flowers. And of course a fabulous puffy sticker was my finishing touch for a sentiment!
While that card was perfect to give away to a female in your life, how about we have one for the men too! This was was inspired by all the great shades of blue in the new ColorWays Sapphire Line!
I used a cut file to cut out the base of the card. Then I went to town lining up my patterned papers - trying for an ombre look! I mixed and matched and layered and combined and pulled it all together to give it a look of the night sky down to the ocean blue.
This is what the backside looked like before I covered it up :)
And then of course I had to bring in some fabulous ColorWays Puffy Stickers and Rub-Ons to add a sentiment and some final touches.
