Hello, so good to see you! Today I’ve created a card using the All Occasions Patterned Paper pad from Graphtec and used it with the Silhouette PixScan Mat. The PixScan mat is a great way to get more from patterned paper other than to cut it up to create a mat layer for backgrounds. Instead, use your PixScan mat to cut out elements to create as focal elements to your papercrafts. It is so easy to do!
Getting more out of patterned paper card assembley process:
**For instructions on how to use the Pixscan mat with Patterned paper, please see the link at the end of the post to Silhouette UK blog where you will find step by step photos and instructions.
To assemble these cards, I added Tattered Rose and Picked Raspberry distress oxides to two card panels. Once I was happy with the blending I added a few drops of water, left it for 20-30 second before soaking up with a kitchen towel for a distress look. Next, I foam mounted the wings of the butterflies onto the card, applying glue beneath their bodies for dimension.
To create the sentiments, I cut the word ‘Happy’ and ‘Hello’ three times using my Cameo. These word die cuts were layered up with glue and several layers of Pink Champagne embossing powder from Brutus Monroe was added for a metallic finish. The sentiments were added to the card panel, along with a few colour corresponding gems. The whole card panels were foam mounted onto side folding A6 card bases.
