Yesterday I had a little play with one of the gorgeous MME LimeTwist 6" X 6" Paper Pads and made a couple of cards.
This first one is very simple but sometimes I like the "less is more" look!! The background paper is from the Lime Twist Life of the party pad and some Bazzill kraft cardstock (I use kraft loads and I'm almost completely out of it so must remember to get some more!). I have inked the kraft with distress ink. The cute butterflys are punched with my Martha Stewart Punch and attached with a spot of Glossy Accents so that their wings are left free and a stamped greeting, Craftwork Cards candi (which I'm hoping to stock in the shop soon) and gems to finish.
The second card is pink bazzill for the background, to which I've mounted a piece of green spotty paper to the top half and flower paper to the lower half (both from the Lime Twist Life of the party pad ) with all the corners rounded and the edges inked with distress ink. I cut a strip of brown Lime Twist paper (which is actually the reverse side of the flowery paper!) and punched the edge with my Fiskars border punch and added it across the join. I tied a piece of grosgrain ribbon before attaching the whole piece to a white scalloped card blank and embellishing with a chipboard flower and finishing with craftwork cards candi and a greeting attached with 3d foam tape.
These 6" x 6" pads are gorgeous and perfect for making cards. You get 24 sheets of double sided papers in each pad ... 12 designs .... 2 sheets of each and the papers are good cardstock quality!
Right, I'm off to load some wooden stamps onto the Clearance section of the website!!
Have a Great Day!
