Playing with Patterns

And it’s Saturday again! This week our theme for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Hop is to make a card using patterns.  I thought using some of the DSP in the Playing with Patterns pack would be PERFECT!

  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, layer onto Coastal Cabana 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, add to card front
  • Playing with Patterns DSP – pick 5 different prints and cut 1 x 3 1/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp greeting using Night of Navy, cut out using Layering Oval, cut out matching scallop oval in Purple Posy.  Add scallop oval to card front using dimensionals
  • But 3 pieces of ribbon – one from each of the Playing with Patterns Ribbon, add behind the stamped oval, add oval to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Iridescent Pearls to finish off
