To create today's card I was inspired by the beautiful papers of the Bliss collection by My Mind's Eye. It has beautifully subtle colors with gold foil accents. I chose to play with two different papers from the pack. One was a whimsical pattern with sweet little gold foil dots raining up and down on the page. The other was a wonderful pink and white striped pattern with a lovely arrangement of flowers in the corner.
I created my dimensional flower piece with the Fantasy Floral Die 3D die set. I cut the bottom and top piece from white card stock and color matched Altenew Inks to the colors in the paper pack. I applied the inks directly to paper to create these 2 pieces. The middle piece was cut out of a piece of gold metallic paper. I assembled the flower using foam in between the layers to create dimension and adhered it to the card covering up the flower that was on the paper.
I used the remaining paper to adhere the striped piece to, as I had cut the center flower piece out of the center, and trimmed the edges to leave a very small border of gold around the edge. I often do this to use as much of the gold paper as possible. I have several other pieces I cut out of the piece that I can use on future projects.
I hope you have fun trying this technique on your own. I love playing with pretty papers. There are so many ways to create with them. If you make a project inspired by this post please tag it with #perkypennypapers on Instagram and I will be able to see it :)
Until next time,
Happy Stamping :)
