Pink Polka dot-Thanks so Much

I’ve got another easy one today, this card shows how you can create a little bit of interest to your card by just altering the patterned paper by cutting it into strips and offsetting the pieces. It’ s a fun way to change things up a little bit but still using a minimum of supplies.

To create this card first I picked out a fun patterned paper from my Costco stash, and I planned ahead where I wanted the Thanks So Much message so I knew how to plan out my layout.  The finished card is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and I cut that out of Whisper White cardstock.

I cut a rectangle that is 4″ x 5 1/4″ and put double-sided adhesive over one side. then I cut long strips of the patterned paper, about 1/2″ wide but quite a bit longer than what they needed to be for the finished card.


then I lay them out on top of the cardstock with the adhesive offsetting each one as I put them down.


Next, I trimmed all the excess pieces off from around the rectangle.


I cut the panel at an angle where I knew I wanted the greeting, I had to trim a little off the end to make sure that the panel would fit inside the allotted space once I left the space that I wanted for the greeting.

I stamped the greeting with Melon Mambo ink.

I added white fun foam to both sections of the panel, then I added it to the card front, making sure not to cover the greeting. The fun foam gives the card a little bit of dimension without adding too much bulk.

I left the inside of the card blank, leaving room for a personal message.

Thanks for joining me! I am a paper crafting enthusiast who has a special interest in interactive cards. I get a lot of inspiration from the internet so I thought that I  would throw out my own creations with hope that it inspires someone else.
