Two Patterned Papers

Make the Cards Challenge #55

For this card I chose two papers from StampinUp and cut them into 2″x2″ squares. I had seen a sketch design on Pinterest and decided to follow it somewhat although my card only uses 2 sets of squares and the sketch had 3. I backed the squares with 1/8″ larger gold squares and added them to the embossed layer. Embossing folder is a fairly thick one from SSS and it has been a struggle getting it through my Big Shot. In the end I created my own sandwich to get it to work. (thanks for the tip Golda). The little butterflies are the extras I had after my last post and I decided to use them here. I also added one sketchy flower in gold after I had added the sentiment. Sentiment from a Joy Claire set and I backed this with gold as well. I added some pink pops of color to the centers of the embossed flowers as well as body of butterflies. I’m really pleased with how this one turned out. Thanks for looking and I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  1. So pretty from the embossing folder to your design. SU always has such pretty patterned papers. Love the butterflies. Those 3D embossing folders definitely need a different sandwich.

    1. Thanks Gayle. I am figuring out the sandwich for the different folders but sometimes I get a bit fed up with them.


  2. Great card. The patterns work well together. Love the butterflies. The EF adds lovely texture, but those 3D folders can be a challenge.

    1. Glad you like it. I look at it and feel pleased with it myself. I love some of the DSP from StampinUp.


  3. Johanna, this is gorgeous. Those patterned paper pieces go together beautifully and the butterflies go really well with them with just that bit of extra brightness. Glad you got your sandwich to work. It’s so fun to see all the beauty you create.

  4. Thanks so much my friend. There are times of frustration in trying to dry emboss. My big shot is now designated as the embossing unit so if I break it I don’t care. Its old and no longer cuts well.


  5. How pretty, the dark blue and gold are lovely together, and show up so nicely on the white embossed background. Thank you for joining us at Make the Cards Challenge!
