One Card, Two Ways – Sweet Pea Paper Stack

Sweet Pea Paper Stack

 

The Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack is definitely my new favourite.  I love the colours included in it: Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, Old Olive, Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie , So Saffron, Pretty in Pink and Rose Red.  Not colours I would have put together myself but they work so well.

And when you have so many colours and patterns to choose from, making cards get a little easier.

Today, I made two cards from one piece of patterned paper using the same basic layout and switching it up a bit. I choose a paper that featured a diagonal stripe in Pretty in Pink with a little bit of Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and So Saffron. I also knew I wanted to use my Sweet Pea Stitched Felt so I decided not to use So Saffron on these cards.

For the first card, I used Certainly Celery cardstock with Pretty in Pink satin ribbon and placed the paper at the bottom. For the second card, I used Pretty in Pink cardstock with Old Olive satin ribbon and placed the paper at the top. Both pieces of cardstock were embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder for the Big Shot.   

The "Happy Birthday" greeting from Vintage Labels was stamped in either Certainly Celery or Old Olive ink and punched with the 1-1/4" Circle. I layered the smaller circle onto a 1-3/8" Circle and then a Scallop Circle of coordinating cardstock. 

Last, I added the focal point on each card. The first card has a bird made using the Extra Large Two-Step Brid Punch. The second card uses the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt to make the main part of the card. These are both must have products to make creating cards almost effortless.

Below you can see close up photos of the cards that show more detail.

I hope I have inspired you to try making simply changes to the cards you design to create a whole new look. Happy stamping!
