Papertrey Ink | April Blog Hop

The tilted/diagonal trend is so popular in papercrafting right now, and I have been happily creating diagonal projects for the last few months: here, here, and here.


My previous projects have included diagonals that cover the front of the card/layout, edge to edge. For this card I wanted the diagonal strips to cover half to two-thirds of the card front. I pulled out Maile's new Sketched Shapes dies to die cut two different sized banners in several different colors of cardstock and patterned paper. I created a pattern I liked, then adhered the strips down before trimming off the excess. I created the flowers using the Lovely Layers stamps and dies. Each flower was covered with an Aqua Mist button. The mix of colors (Enchanted Evening, Hibiscus Burst, Limeade Ice, Aqua Mist, Lemon Tart, and white) just makes me happy. :)

 (Supplies - Stamps: (PTI) Lovely Layers. Ink: (PTI) Hibiscus Burst, Lemon Tart, Enchanted Evening, Limeade Ice. Cardstock: (PTI) Aqua Mist, Lemon Tart, Limeade Ice, Enchanted Evening. Dies: (PTI) Sketched Shapes, Lovely Layers. Patterns Paper: (PTI) Hibiscus Burst, Aqua Mist Patterns Pack. Other: Buttons, vellum, thread.)

That's it for me! I am off to watch Evan perform in front of his school... he is on the dance team. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
