4 Sheet Challenge with the February Calendar Collection
Hello friends and Authentique Paper fans! Ginny here to share that I've given myself another 4 sheet challenge with the amazing Calendar collection. This time I'm using the February pages. It just amazes me that with a little planning and careful cutting you can really make the images and patterned papers go a really long way.
You can cover a lot of space with a really large flower arrangement. This is a great way add lots of detail.
The Calendar collection has fabulous images in a variety of sizes like this ticket. I made this work by switching to an A2 sized card base. Now it's the right scale for the card. The background for this card was another cut apart image. I wasn't crazy about the birds so I covered those up leaving the February lettering as a detail for the top.
Another ticket for this card layered over a strip of the plaid. I used a scalloped edge rectangle die to create a nice background and topped it with another of the cut apart journal cards.
When you're into the scrappy bits do some paper piecing to create your own "patterned paper" This bold color blocking was done with 2 x 2 squares and it adds so much impact. I've also created a tag with the scraps and added all my usual festive layers.
Okay so that's 9 cards from the same 4 sheets of paper. I added only cardstock and embellishments to complete these project. Wanna see what's left?
I do feel like I can make something out of this lol. Maybe a little label tag for a baked treat?
