Today, I’m sharing a quick post with these simple, easy to make but pretty cards using the pattern papers by Waffleflower Crafts. I like making my backgrounds A LOT, but I also love pattern papers too and what I like most about these from WF crafts is that they are 80 lbs. so they can be used for card panels or even card bases! I used them for panels for these 2 designs but I also made more quantities too!
You can see that the rainbow stripes go in the opposite direction for these cards! I trimmed them down to A2 size (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ landscape) and adhered them to my card bases. I die cut a circle and stamped the sentiment on it and made a stitched border by taking 2 circle dies, placing them together with purple tape and running through my die cutting machine. I think when I make these cards again, I’ll die cut that border in a different color just to have it show up more.
Another idea I had is to add some dimension to the sentiment on the circle die, I didn’t think about it till after I had finished but I also wanted these cards to mail easily.
I LOVE matching my envelopes for all my cards and I just placed an order for more pastel envelopes and these colors work perfectly with the rainbow colors, however, I couldn’t settle for just 1 color so I’m offering a choice! And in the Shop, you can purchase either card and choose your own envelope!
All done!! Aren’t they cute??! And, I love the sentiment! I was inspired by my hubby’s recent semi-retirement and decided to use this stamp set 🙂 List of the supplies used are below as always! And thanks for reading!
