Hi friends. This is my second post for today.
I was very excited to win a spot in the new Online card class: Pattern Play from Laura Bassen's blog. Thank you Laura. This is my very first online class and I am very excited to learn more about using all the patterned paper that I have collected over the years. I tend to hoard it. :)
Today's class had some amazing tips on picking your patterned paper, combining patterns, etc. There was a lot to digest today. I was inspired by Jennifer's heart cards and wanted to try out her techniques. She showed 4 today but I chose the two that I liked best. :)
For my first card I popped each hexagon up on dimensional adhesive but first die cut an identical shape from white cardstock. This creates a nice white "shadow" under the patterned die cut. Hard to capture in a photo.
For my second card I created a mat for each of my shapes by tracing the outer edge of the die onto a piece of cardstock and cut the shape by hand. I love that Jennifer said if someone says something about your fussy cutting to kick them in the shin, take your card and run and never give them a card again. haha
These papers were all from one pack and I am not sure how well they worked together for this but I am still learning. :) Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
