Crafty Friends...

Happy Saturday blog friends... I hope you all have some fun plans this weekend. I have been recovering from a cold and it is taking a while. This past week has NOT been fun. But, I am on the road to recovery and it always makes you feel good when you get to create a card... right? 

Create card from white cardstock A2 size.

Choose two pieces of designer paper that will go well with each other. Try and think outside of the box when choosing your patterns. I started with my black and white patterned paper that I adhered to the entire card base. These papers are 6x6 so trim off the excess. Now take your second patterned paper and just line it up to the bottom left corner and adhere it at an angle and trim off excess. Do the same but in a smaller part in the left hand corner. 

Stamp one of the flowers from the Altenew Kind Reminders stamp set on white cardstock using black ink. Use the coordinating Kind Reminders stencil to add the color to the flower. I used Pinkfresh Studio Cherry Blossom and Begonia on the flower and for the leaves I used Emerald City and Meadow. Die cut the flower using the coordaitning Kind Reminders die set. Add some foam tape to the back of the flower and adhere it to your card. 

Stamp the sentiment from the Halftone Circles stamp set on white cardstock using black ink. Trim down the sentiment, add some foam tape to the back and adhere it to your card. 

Just a few steps and we have a card. I love weird patterns together.... what do you think?

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a wonderful weekend.


  1. Your "weird" patterns make a fun background for the pretty flower! Terrific card, Annette. Hope you're feeling back to 100% soon!

  2. You did an amazing job with the patterned paper. I liked how you explained your procedure. Yes, crafty friends like you are the best!
