Playing with Colors

Posted by: Gemin General, Projects


I made this card today for the challenge of The Paper Players, which is to use the colors strawberry slush,  crisp cantaloupe and pear pizzazz (sounds fruity and yummy!). This card is just 4½” square and can be done in less than 20 minutes – really!

Deciding which paper piercing pattern to use took me much longer, while doing the actual piercing took less than 10 minutes. This particular design is from the Paper Piercing Floral Set, it adds a lacy, feminine look to the card. I used an EK Success punch for the flowers, an MS punch for the leaves (I cut one apart) and rhinestones from Recollections for the flower centers. Card base is from Colorbok, and the other papers came from my scraps (which means I cannot identify the manufacturer, lol!). The sentiment was printed using Bankscr D font. For the circles, I used a 1¾” punch from Stampin Up! and a 2″ punch from Recollections.

***My daughters are done with the paper piercing videos, just doing some finishing touches! We will be uploading the videos tomorrow and I will be posting a free paper piercing pattern here!
