Collect your scraps and make this card! This is such a cheery, vibrant card! That's probably why it was a recent class favorite!!

 

20230415_094231

Cut card stock strips about 1/4 to 1/2" wide.  Attach the strips to a card stock base. I chose to attach these diagonally for more interest.

 

20230415_094240

Flip over the card stock and trim off the strips that protrude beyond the edges. Mount to a slightly larger Black layer.

Brilliant Wings Dies #155523

Brilliant Wings Dies #155523

I had fun with color! I use quite a bit of black card stock, all year around. Black POPS all colors! These butterflies are cut with the Brilliant Wings Dies #155523. I applied Adhesive Sheets #152334 to the back of the black card stock before die cutting. This creates a "sticker," so application is quick and clean!! The backgrounds are Subtles 6 X 6" Designer Series Paper #159255. These paper packs are SO HANDY and great for envelopes flaps, too!!

Regency Park 6 X 6" Designer Series Paper

Designer Series Paper #160559

Here is a FUN idea using Regency Park Designer Series Paper #160559. This fold shows both sides of the designer paper.

 

20230305_145754

Working with designer paper is easy. The color palette is predetermined for you.

 

Regency Park 6X6

TIPS: These rectangles are cut 2-1/2 X 1-7/8". Cut the four rectangles as "one," so they are the same size.  Cut one template the same size, and then cut off the corner at a 45 degree angle. This template determines the fold of the designer papers so they are all the same. The center opening can be varied to accommodate the focal point. The deeper the fold, the larger the center opening. This flower is created with the Petal Park Builder Punch #160576.
