I love creating cards with scenes. How cute is that little pup on the rolling hills of grass? He looks so happy, too. Creating a scene with layers of patterned paper is easy. Let me show you how I do it.
First, I select patterned papers and embellishments that coordinate well together. For this project I used patterned paper, brads and a sticker from Doodlebug Design.
Next, I trim the papers and layer them on top of my card. I cut the rolling hills by hand, so no fancy machine is required. Then I place the embellishments on top where I think I would like them to be.
After I adhered the layers to the card, I machine stitched each layer with coordinating thread. To add some balance to the card, I stitched an embellishment near the upper-left corner of the card. I also use a screw punch to create the holes where I attach brads.
Using the screw punch makes for perfect brad placement every time. Plus, the paper doesn't tear or crease.
Cute collections of sentiments, right? You can use them for just about any occasion!
