Hello Authentique friends! JJ here today, to share some cards featuring the "Seasons: Spring" petite collection.
For each of these cards, I used curve templates from Kiwi Lane Designs. I started out by tracing the curves on several pieces of the patterned paper (and some card stock), then I cut them out and distressed the edges. Layering thick papers like Authentique's gives some nice depth to a card.
I finished off this card with a sentiment, some pretty Petaloo flowers, and a couple of stick pins from Maya Road.
This card was made in a similar way, but I added stitching to the layers:
I punched out a couple of clouds and adhered them with foam adhesive, to give more dimension.
I placed the letter stickers on one of the contrasting papers, and cut around the whole sentiment, leaving a border. This little trick helps words stand out against the background.
For the third card, I again started with the Kiwi Lane curve template.
I die-cut a few 'doily' shapes to back the sentiment stickers, and adhered with foam-adhesive to make them 'pop'.
Then I tucked in a couple more of the Maya Road stick pins.
I hope you'll make a few cards, maybe trying these ideas, and share them with us on our Facebook page - we would love to see them!
Thank you for visiting!
