Play with pattern papers!

Hi All!

*** Check out my Giveaway on my FaceBook Page. Closing on 08/03/2014 at 12 PM EST ****

I am back again with another post to show a set of 3 cards I made yesterday from a single piece of 12x12 pattern paper. Since the pattern paper was for creating layouts, I was hoarding it for so long as I don't do scrapbooks and the birdies and colors were so cute! So I whipped up an idea of making 3 cards altogether as I cannot let such a beautiful paper go waste!

Here is the set of cards :

Now individual pics :
1. Tall card : I had a pretty tough time in aligning the birdies with negative die cut area and sticking it to the base of the card as the birdies were spread across the pattern paper. I guess I managed somehow.

2. Shaped card: Those who follow my crafting, they would know by now that It's my favorite shape. On the patter paper is from Recollections - Fabulous Girl paper pad. The little birdie die cut sentiment is from K&Company. Also added some enamel dots to enhance the color palette I used here and did some faux stitching to outline the design.

3. Heart Shaped Easel Card: 
How can I separate 2 birdies sitting together!!! I had to use them together, A heart shaped card was just perfect for these birdies and they looked so much in love. :D Added a "tweet" sentiment too!

And now a picture of the PP I used to make these cards. Sorry for the bad picture, I clicked the photo when I already started with the cards.

I am not able to recall Brand names for the card stock and enamel dots used here. Dies are from Spellbinders except the mini cloud which is from Greeting Farm Company.

Challenges Entered :

I hope you liked these cards. I just loved making these.

Thank for visiting,
Have a lovely day!
