I am still having fun with my stash of Authentique paper! This is my third card creation for Authentique Paper's December Sketch Challenge. When I saw this poppy paper from the Gathering collection I immediately fell in love. Not only because orange is my all time favorite color, but because I also love poppies. Every spring, California poppies spring up in my front yard and leave a delightful carpet of orange blooms well into October. This paper deserved to be the star of a card.
Cards are to be based on the sketch below:
|"friends" Finished card size is 4 1/4"x5 1/2"|
Wouldn't this be a fantastic card for your BFF? I used the Bloom print and die-cuts from Authentique Paper's Gathering collection. I lightly sanded the edges and surface of the printed paper to created a distressed look. The ribbon is from Bobbin Ribbon, brads are from American Crafts and pearl embellishments are from Recollections.
Thanks for stopping by!
