Smash that paper pad 2020

Smash that paper pad – 2

For an explanation of this project see this blog post from the 11th of April, thanks again to Deb Houck’s Crafty Cottage for the inspiration!

Today my project is inspired by the Stick it Down Challenge which has a card sketch for April.  I thought this would be a great use of the coordinating patterned papers.  I cute panels measuring 9 x 3.5 cm and some ivory card panels measuring 9.5 x 4 cm as mats for the patterned panels.  I added these to some kraft card bases.


I also used two magazine gifts from Bright Rosa by Paula Pascual (the stitched edge rectangle from the Geo Panel Die Set from Die Cutting Essentials issue 62 and the Fern Die from Issue 202 of Simply Cards and Papercraft).

I cut the rectangle from ivory card and inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink.


Then I cut two full size ferns and one little one from two green card.  I glued these onto the panel.


The final step was to add the sentiment which is from the Group Hug stamp set by Marianne Designs.  I cut the sentiment out and added some sticky pads to give it dimension.


I liked it so much I made another four!


I would also like to enter the Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge.

Many thanks for visiting my blog, I’d love it if you left me a like or said hi in the comments.  I hope you will come again soon!

  1. SUPER cool cards! I love that you made several and the leaves of green set off all the beautiful rose colored pattern papers you used. Your vintage inked rectangle is a perfect compliment. Thank you for joining us at Stick It Down–Sharon DT
