DIY Patterned Paper- Thank You


I have a fun card to share with you that fits the latest AEIHeartU Challenge, which is to create your own patterned paper.  I love that the i {heart} papers store carries Avery Elle stamps and dies!  Woot!

I grabbed the Modern Leaves set, and starting with the lined leaf image, turned it over and placed it on my block before I stamped it in Mint Julep ink (Hero Arts).  I then turned it over and stamped again in the same ink to get the original image.  I did the same thing with the other leaf, flipping it over to the solid side, and inking it up with Wplus9's Ocean Drive dye ink.  I then filled in the open spaces with the circle image using two different pinks.

I then stamped my sentiment in black ink, sliced my panel and popped it up onto a card base, after adding a strip of gold glitter paper to the base.  I adhered a few gold enamel dots, and rounded the corners with the WRMK corner chomper.

Thanks so much for stopping in, have a great one!
