Most Wonderful Time

Here's card #2 from my Facebook Live on Sunday (you can watch it HERE). Yes, once again I used 1" pattern paper scraps. This card happens to feature products from the Most Wonderful Time product medley from the holiday catalog. It is a beautiful kit, the pictures in the catalog don't do it justice. Be sure and watch my Facebook Live, I give a tip on how to get rid of the "stick" from the sticker that the sentiment is stamped on.

Basic Black - 5 3/8 x 4 1/8
Real Red - 5 1/4 x 4

1" Pattern Paper Strips...Again!!

I'm on a kick of using 1" strips of pattern paper, usually scraps, to create a card. Well, today I did a Facebook Live on my business page showing how this card was made. This time, I actually cut the one inch strips instead of using scraps!! I had some leftover so tomorrow I'll share a 2nd card I made with these paper strips. It all comes from the Most Wonderful Time product medley, something, I confess, I overlooked when first going thru the catalog. I'm so happy I ended up getting it though, it really is lovely!! Here are the measurements and products used:

Thick Whisper White card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4
Old Olive - 5 1/4 x 4
Basic Black - 4 7/8 x 3 5/8
Whisper White, 4 3/4 x 2, 4 3/4 x 1 1/2
DSP - 1" strips
