Baby Boy Card

I love that Papermilldirect has such a range of shades of colour card. It means I can make a card in a colour scheme and really embrace it, and rarely even need patterned paper! For this card I used:

I started off by stamping my focal image on the pastel blue card. I used the Pumice Stone Distress Ink for this. I stamped the detail part of the stamp with Black Archival Ink. When dry I die cut it using the matching stamp.

I cut the panel that would be the main panel and felt it would be a little plain. So I used a star stencil I had made myself, and used the Tumbled Glass Distress ink to create the background. It gave a nice tone on tone effect, keeping the nice pale blue tones.

I also cut a banner shape for my sentiment and stamped this in the Tumbled Glass ink.

I layered up my card base with the star inked Pastel Blue card background. I used the Papermilldirect Blue Plain card for a contrasting layer, just to break up all the pale tones a little, and to draw your eye to the card if sitting on a shelf among others.

I die cut a circle from Papermilldirect Hammered White card and foam mounted this to the card based. I then foam mounted the elephant to this circle.

I foam mounted and glued the sentiment on, to get a banner dimension effect and the card was done!

Do you ever skip the patterned paper on your cards and let the range of colours in Papermilldirect card shine through?
