I love the colors of Autumn. Today’s cards feature some beautiful patterned papers with gorgeous fall colors from P13. They make it in a 12″ x 12″ format as well as the 6″ x 6″ format.
Those reddish purples and turquoise colors are so beautiful! The layout on these cards is fairly basic. I simply added some decorative borders along the edges of the panels. I did this in two ways. First, I used a paper punch I’ve had for quite some time. The strip of paper measures 1.25″ by 5.5″ before it was cut with the punch.
Second, I used straight line border stickers in gold. This technique adds some definition between the layers on the cards. I also used the border stickers to frame two sentiments which were stamped on rectangles that I cut from the patterned paper.
The two strips of reddish purplish paper seen above measure 1.5″ x 5.5″ each. The card below shows how I framed the circle sentiment in gold vinyl by first adhering the gold vinyl to cardstock and then cutting out a circle frame by using two circle dies, one inside the other. The strips of turquoise and reddish purplish paper seen below measure approximately 1.75″ x 5.5″ before using the border punch.
I also used some of the gold border stickers to go under the punched out hearts, which you can see in the turquoise panel above. For the reddish purplish panel with the scalloped edge, I just cut a strip of the orangish yellow patterned paper from the paper pad.
