Petal Passion Designer Paper Times Twelve!

Hi Stampers! Today we are going to play with designer paper. The Petal Passion Designer Paper is all black & white and comes in 12 different patterns. See what I did here with all 12 patterns?

I created 12 identical cards and added some color to all of the designer paper layers!

I stuck with the same ink colors to create a set of 12 coordinating cards. The ink colors I used are:
  • Wild Wasabi
  • Powder Pink
  • Daffodil Delight
I dipped my Aqua Painter into the lid of the ink pads and swished the color on some of the white parts of the designer paper layers. Here are the first six cards, with the angled cut from left to right:

And the next six cards show the designer paper angled in the opposite direction and I'll explain how I created the angled cuts, you'll be amazed....I promise!

Although you see 12 different patterns on each card, I only used 6 pieces of designer paper total for all 12 cards. How is that possible? I started with six different pieces of patterned paper that measured 5-1/4" x 4". Now don't forget that all of our Stampin' Up! designer papers have two patterns on each sheet. I cut each piece like so:

Once the designer paper is cut in half at an angle, flip one piece over and welcome to the second patterned side of the sheet. You now have 12 angled pieces to use on the card bases. Here are the layers I used:
  • All card bases are Basic Black Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score at 5-1/2" and fold.
  • Layer #2 is the angled designer paper. I used my ink pads and Aqua Painter to add color to each sheet and glued to the top leaving 1/4" around all three sides.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 5-1/2" x 1". Stamp a sentiment in the center and glue to card front. Trim the excess on both sides. 
  • Branches: Cut two branches for each card. For the cards with Wild Wasabi Ink I added one branch cut with Wild Wasabi Cardstock and one with Vellum Cardstock. For the cards with no Wild Wasabi Ink, I added two branches cut with Vellum Cardstock. Tuck and glue under the sentiment layer. Repeat for each card.
  • Ribbon: Tie the Silver Baker's Twine into a bow and glue to the top of the branches. Repeat for each card.
This was so much fun and I know you'll love it too!
