My theme was something really soft, yet bright enough for spring time....a large flower for a focal point and some stickers were used too!!
There is no rule to designing with patterned paper, most of the time I simply just mix and match and gather my pieces together, slap them onto my cardbase and see what it looks like...if I don't like it, I try other patterns until I get a result I like.
If you are like me and really LOVE working with 12 x 12 sheets and trimming them up, try these with some intricate borders and edges:
They are so easy to use and all you need to do is trim to fit your card, the curves and scallops already exist on the paper's design, so it's very convenient! It gives you that 'punched' look except without the punch!
