International Blog Highlights!

Monday 6 June 2022 United Kingdom

It's time for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights! 

The theme, as always, is Thank You!
You can check out all of the thank you cards entered by papercrafters from all over the world by clicking on the banner below

If you like my card, please vote for me - you can find more information on how to vote further down this page.

I am using the new Perfectly Pencilled DSP from Stampin' Up! again - I just love this DSP and readers of my blog will know I love a black and white monochrome patterned paper ❤️

I have a few more projects to share with you using this gorgeous patterned paper. The upcoming projects have a very similar feel to this one so if you like what you see, please subscribe to my content here and you'll get an email when I share future blog posts. 

Some people may spot straight away that I've been fussy cutting this paper again but this time, don't worry, I've only added a few small touches of fussy cutting on the belly band and inside the card. 

For the belly band I added a leaves and flowers to frame the sentiment before die cutting it out using a circle die from the Stylish Shapes dies - If you look close enough, you'll see the stitching detail go through the patterned paper. 

Inside I've added a few of the butterflies which  you'll be pleased to know, were much easier to fussy cut that the flowers.

I really love this colour combo, I've used it before and I'll use it again. 

I could have used so many other colours instead of pink, however, this colour combo spoke to me and I made my decision. 

Other colours (that I love) that I could have used are Pool Party (of course), Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Polished Pink, So Saffron, Coastal Cabana.... 

In fact I don't think many colours wouldn't work - I'd just encourage you to work with colours that make you happy, like I do!   

I'm afraid I haven't shared a tutorial for this accordion fancy fold card but do please leave me a comment if the measurements would be useful and I will look them up for you.

I haven't decorated the folds but inside I've added one of my favourite sentiments from the soon to be retiring Flowing Flowers stamp set

The sentiment inside reads "Sending a card instead of a text". I've also used the 'Thank you' sentiment on the belly band on the front. I think the font in this stamp set works so well with the hand drawn images on the patterned paper.
