Hi! I have a card today made with some of the new Memory Box designer papers. This paper pack is called, Cottage Meadow, and is full of colorful, floral, double sided papers. I love it all! For my card I chose a print with white posies on an orange background. Here's how I made my card.
I always need birthday cards, and decided on a shaker. The die set, Echo Blossoms, cuts 8 different sizes of the flower shape. I used the largest for my shaker.
You've probably done this dozens of times, but I thought I'd show it anyway, just in case you're new to making a shaker. On the back side of the die cut, with the acetate in place, the foam tape is scored and placed around each petal, close to the opening. Takes a bit of time, but in this covid season, I seem to have plenty of time. My shaker elements are chosen for color and shape, and placed in the middle of the base card.
I created a frame for the window by using the 2 largest blooms and taping them together before running through the machine.
Add a few die cuts and sequins to the front, and a sentiment, and my square card is done! I like to make my own envelopes for a square card (behind the card).
Hope you were inspired to use your printed papers for your next project. They come in handy when you need a quick card! Have a wonderful, and safe weekend!
