The Sea is Calling…
The summer season is in full swing now and Raechelle is back again showing us another fabulous card layering technique that can be used for summer! This card layering project is made from the card stock found in one of the My Minds Eye paper packs available at www.perfectpapercrafting.com as well as the Perfect Layers Mini; which by the way you can still get for 20% off by using the code PERFECTLAYERS at checkout!
For the first step, fussy cut images from patterned paper.
Second, cut the background paper to 1/2” smaller than card base. Round the corners using a punch or one of the circle templates found on the Perfect Square, lightly distress and adhere to coordinating patterned paper of your choice.
Using the Perfect little cutting mat and Perfect Layers Mini 1/8” trim around patterned paper, lightly distress and adhere to the card card stock. Next, use your Minis to 1/16” trim around the patterned paper and adhere to the card base.
Trim your piece of patterned paper and adhere to white card stock then use your Mini to 1/16” trim top and bottom edges of patterned paper and adhere to center of card.
Lastly you get to decorate! Let your imagination take over and add twine in random loops, adhere the fussy cut pieces and finish off with sequins. There is no pattern to follow here, so place as few or as many as you like. Viola! A Perfect Summer card!
