when talking about cardmaking what paper size you prefer ?
well, as for me it is difficult to say exactly. I guess that each piece of paper is perfect for the card. However I decided to try to make almost the same cards design but mix the paper sizes of the same collection and patterned papers.
I took Vintage Summer Basics collection and picked one of my favorites papers.
I like the mix of pale pink, mauve and peach.
For my second card I used lamost the same embellishments but try to take the same paper from the 6*6 paper pad
I used the same dies, the smaller size of resin frame.
and look – it looks almost the same and absolutely different at the same time.
Can you feel the difference?
Vintage Summer Basics
Hello Maja fans, welcome to the blog. Today I have a layout to share with you that I have created using some papers from the “Enjoying Outdoors” collection.
For the main background I have used the “Beautiful Trees” paper from that collection. Such a lovely shade of earthy green, my favourite colour. 🙂
All of the chipboard I have used is from 2Crafty Chipboard.
I cut a tag out of the “Tags & Journalling” paper, also from the same collection too & popped it in among my layers. I have also used lots of gorgeous flowers too.
If you look close you will see I have actually scrunched the paper a little, I wet it under the tap, scrunched it up like this & then dried it off. Wetting it just makes it easier to do this technique. When dry I also distressed the edges a little as well. It just creates a nice textural element to the layout I think.
After doing that I then stuck it to a piece of the “Woodlands” paper, from the same collection. I think the stripe makes such a nice contrast. I also used some of the “Woodlands” stripe behind the photo too.
I have listed the papers used below. Hope this helps you.
The one on the left is the “Woodlands” paper, the middle one is the “Beautiful Trees” paper & the one on the right is the “Tags & Journalling Cards”. These are all from the Enjoying Outdoors collection.
Until next time.
