Another Fun Way For Using Designer Paper For Card Making!

Using designer paper for card making can sometimes present a challenge. We don’t want to hide the pretty patterns, sometimes they are super busy and items get lost on them and we don’t always want to “lose” the beauty of the pattern by cutting it into slivers. I’ve been experimenting and shared this post a bit ago and today I have another pretty card that shows off a beautiful designer paper and has an engaging focal element that doesn’t get lost.  To make this card I used the Rubbernecker Cart, Cart Accessories #1, Knob Top Fence, Slimline Grass, Leaves and Greenery and Tiny Flower Buds.

Use up that designer paper for card making as backgrounds for pretty die cut scenes in coordinating colors

The Card Base, Fence and Grass

  • Cut an A2 sized card base using white cardstock.
  • Cut a 5.50″ x 4.25″ piece of designer paper and attach it to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Use white cardstock to cut two fence sections and attach them together using glossy accents and trim to fit across the base.
  • Attach the fence to the card base using a strip of double stick tape.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the slimline grass section, trim to 5.50″ wide and attach it to the card base using a strip of mounting tape. 

The Flower Cart

  • Cut the cart body using light blue cardstock and the canopy using light blue and pink cardstock.
  • Cut the wheel using Kraft cardstock.
  • Attach the cart parts together using rolled up strips of double stick tape and glossy accents.
  • Cut a couple sections of the leaves and greenery using green cardstock tiny flowers using light blue and pink cardstock. 
  • Form the tiny flowers using a tiny tipped stylus and molding pad and attach them to the greenery using glossy accents.
  • Attach the flower stems to the front and back of the cart to create a pretty arrangement
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the cart body and attach it to the card base.
  • Attach the the light blue canopy sections to the pink section using glossy accents. 
  • Apply a single strip of double stick tape to the back top of the canopy and small pieces of mounting tape on the lower back corners.
  • Attach it to the card base just over the top of the cart poles.

The Accessories

  • Cut the flower pots using Kraft cardstock and attach small flower stems to the back of the pots using glossy accents.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the pots and attach them to the card base.
  • Use gray cardstock to cut the watering can and attach it to the card base using a small piece of mounting tape.
  • Cut the garden boots boots using light blue cardstock , color the bottom of the boots using a black marker and add thin strips of pink cardstock.
  • Attach the the two boots together using a few rolled up glue dots and attach them to the grass using glossy accents.

designer paper for card making can be tricky but using it as a background here with a sweet die cut scene makes a beautiful card

I hope this project inspires you to use your designer paper for card making so you can both use up your stash AND create beautiful cards!
