Blogger's Challenge #196: Pattern Papers


Our Challenge this week was to use patterned papers in our project.  I am sharing a little 3 by 3 notecard set that I made for my hostess last night.  The box is created with four of the die cuts made from the Scallop Envelope Bigz die.  (This also makes a really cute envelope!)  By adhering together the side flaps from the envelope die, you can create a little box!

The DSP  (Designer Series Paper) I chose to use is called Springtime Vintage.  I love the combination of colors that this collection offers:  Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Rose Red, Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake, River Rock, Very Vanilla and Always Artichoke.  Super pretty color options!

I tried a Faux Iris Folding technique on this one.  I punched the heart with the Heart Punch and then used strips of paper on the back to create a random pattern.

This one uses the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch and the new birthday set from the Occasions Mini called Bring on the Cake!

This card uses a couple of the oval shaped punches (Large Oval and Scallop Oval) with an addition of Rhinestones to add a little sparkle.

Below, you can see the links to the other creations.  We hope you are liking this new style of connecting the Blogger Challenge Players together.  The other awesome part is that you can participate, too!  Just add the link to where you are posting your card and you can play along, too!!!

Very cute gift box and cards. I just love 3x3's. They go together so quickly and are nice to put inside packages or leave behind as a surprise.

Very cute box and notecards. I might have to try the "Faux" iris folding (I think I could handle that). Great papers too.
