Decorative Paper - Set 3

This card features paper created with the Bubble Painting technique.

This technique was done on plain white card stock so it matte and not shiny.  There is a great variety of greens from moss to a yellowy one.  I chose a green grey card stock.  I trimmed the decorative paper to leave a small margin and adhered it to the card front.  I then placed a piece of River Rock card stock across the bottom third of the card.  On top of that I adhered my greeting with 3D foam tape.  The greeting was color printed on ivory card stock and punched with the Stampin Up Decorative Label Punch.  I rubbed the edges with Always Artichoke ink pad. I cut a star from River Rock then a smaller one from the same bubble decorative paper.  These where layered and adhered above the greeting to the left.

Here's a sympathy card made with the circle trio using the same bubble paper.  I punched the decorative paper with the smaller 1.25" circle punch then the solid card stock with the 1 3/8" circle punch. These were adhered together.  The large greeting is my own design and was printed in Mellow Moss.  I used the same green grey card stock as the first card. I adhere the left and right circles leaving even borders then just place the third one in between leaving even borders.

This card features Paste Paper.  The acrylic paint used in the technique was brown.  I cut the paper leaving a small border.  It was adhered to the front of a warm brown card which worked well with the colors in the paper.  I cut the Memory Box Birch Tree Trio from sand colored card stock.  I adhered them to the paste paper with snail adhesive so I could just rub off the areas which had adhesive sticking out.  The greeting is printed on vellum in black then embossed with clear powder. I ripped the top and bottom edges.  I placed it across the bottom third of the card and added the copper maple leaf brad in the top right hand corner.  I used several tiny round brads to hold the rest of the greeting in place.  Once in place I trimmed the ends to the card edge with scissors.
