• Tags and patterned paper!

by Kristine Mysah Khatri November 24, 2018

Like every other crafter, I've got a sizable stash of patterned paper, which I'm struggling to finish. I'll be experimenting here on out with my paper pads/packs. Hopefully to make space for new pretty papers, 'cause let's face it, I'm a sucker for pretty papers like every other crafter. The process video for this card is at the bottom of this post, but you can directly head over to our YouTube channel and watch it there.

Mixing and Matching

For this card, I decided to use a couple of papers from the "Cakes and Candles" 6x6 paper pad from We R Memory Keepers. You could mix and match from different paper collections, but try to choose papers with a color scheme in mind. It also helps to choose one major/loud pattern as your focal point, while the other patterns can be subdued and complementary to it.
A great way to make patterns stand out from each other, is by darkening the edges of the paper. I've only used Distress Inks for this technique, but you could probably use other ink pads.


Tags or Ephemera

Apart from using tags and ephemera as gift decorations, they can be used in card-making, journaling and scrap-booking. The tags I used in this card are from the " Happy Birthday Boy" frames & tags by Echo Park Paper Co. They had a color scheme similar to the "Cakes and Candles" paper pad, so I thought they'd go pretty well together, and voilà, they did! Well, at least in my opinion.
With a little bit of foam tape, and Ranger Glossy Accents, I brought dimension to an otherwise flat layered card. A little bit of shimmer also goes a long way, and in this card I used my favorite glitter brush pen, Wink of Stella.
