Whew! Here we are again. Another day. Another something fun made with the July release from My Favorite Things to share.
Oh the pressure. ;) Let’s do this.
Say hello to today’s project!
So how did I make that pink + black + hot pink paper element? Well, well. Let me tell you.
I used the brand new Square Grid Cover-Up (available on July 8th). This die consists of one really big rectangle with 12 little squares inside it. I cut it three times (from pink, hot pink and black cardstocks). I removed the squares and then stacked the frames onto top of each other, moving them slightly to make the design. I adhered them to white cardstock, cut out the paper design and used it like patterned paper.
Imagine trying this “DIY patterned paper” technique out with some different color combinations. I think orange + green + blue would be fun. So would some hot colors like pink + orange + hot pink.
I used a sentiment on my card from the new Birthday Chalkboard Greetings clear stamp set (also available on July 8th).
I carried through the design of my card to the inside. I had some of my “DIY patterned paper” left so I somewhat repeated the design on the inside.
Once again, I used a sentiment from the Birthday Chalkboard Greetings set.
And there you have it.
