Paisleys Framelits Thankful Card

by Joanne James10. November 2016 08:05

Today it's time for a new challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary and this week we have a colour combination for you:


I was immediately drawn to the Petals and Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper as all of these colours can be found in this pack. I ended up only using a small piece of it though - here's my card:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Copper Specialty Banner - I chose to use a piece of my favourite paper, the beautifully navy with copper-embossed pattern for the banner accent on my card. So pretty!

All About Copper - There are so many copper elements to my card: the foil die cuts and mat, the designer series paper and the copper-embossed sentiment - they all go together beautifully and I love them!

A Paper-Pieced Trio -  I die cut my shapes - not sure whether they are supposed to be leaves, feathers or fans...answers on a postcard! - and having die cut two in Mint Macaron and another in Night of Navy, I carefully paper-pieced the outer elements and in-filled the pattern. This is fiddly with such small pieces, but worth the effort I think. I then finished each shape with an enamel dot.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


I love the simple design of today's card, with the small details adding real interest.

You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Do visit the other Design Team members to see what they did with this week's colours; there's lots of inspiration over on their blogs too!

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Beautifully clean and simple!  There's something to be said for the elegant simplicity of this card.  It doesn't need much because the elegant elements stand so well on their own!  The inlaid dies are amazing!  Very attractive card this week, Joanne!

Love the way you tucked those mint die cut pieces back into the copper.  Lots of work, but worth the visual effect!
