Come see another stunning card using the hot hot hot Festival of Colors Paper Pad from Rubbernecker!
Today the designer of the Festival of Colors Paper Pad from Rubbernecker, Melinda Stearns, is here to share another card she created to show off her masterful watercolor talent reproduced in this gorgeous collection of patterned papers. Let’s hear directly from Melinda and we will pop back in at the end.
I wanted to share more inspiration using the new paper pad I collaborated on with Rob Miller at Rubbernecker. I used a mixed media piece from the paper pad last time and wanted to use one of the scenes from the pad for this card. Fall is doing is beautiful things here in the Pacific Northwest and I couldn’t be happier!!
- Start by grabbing the tree line scene from the Festival of Colors paper pad.
- Using the Offset Circle Die, cut out the two pieces from the paper. I wanted to include the little flowers on the bottom piece so I lined that up first.
- I also cut scraps of white fun foam with both pieces to use later. (You can use dimensional adhesive if you don’t have the foam.)
- For the trees I used scraps leftover from my last card using the maple leaves die. There was plenty leftover for die cutting my trees.
- Cut the tops of the trees with your scrap or a piece of one of the mixed media panels.
- Cut a few extra so you have choices.
- Cut the trunks of the trees with a scrap of brown paper.
- Adhere the trunks to the trees.
- Adhere that fun foam to the backs of the circle pieces or use foam tape adhesive.
- Adhere the circles to the center of a card base.
- Add the trees over the “seam”. I us=sed four of the trees. I added one to the far right just barely hanging off the edge.
- Add the other trees being careful to not put them in an unnatural looking straight line.
- Take some of the extra tree die cuts and stack them under one of the trees to give it a bit more dimension than the others also adding a bit more of a realistic look
- Stamp the large Happy Birthday sentiment from the Birthday Celebration set on the inside of your card and Cut a smaller sub sentiment for the outside of the card.
- Cut the sentiment into a strip and pop up onto the card with foam tape.
