Why is this post called that? It’s the name of the paper stack I worked with to make these cards, silly 🙂 Usually I just put the company name in the title of the post, but I’m trying to not be sooooo boring today.
Anyway, it’s all about Die Cuts With a View on the blog today. I was sent this stack by Xyron for an album that they’re sharing on the Facebook page this week and I decided to make a couple of cards with it. I have a friend with a birthday this week, so it’ll be perfect to have something fancy made up for that, and the other would make a great anniversary or Valentine’s Day card. Let’s get started!
This is the anniversary/Valentine’s Day card. I really liked the brocade style papers in this stack. The patterns are really pretty without being too overpowering in the background.
The shapes that I used for embellishments were all cut from papers in the stack and all that I had to add to the card was a little ribbon. I used the Xyron Mega Runner and some 3/16″ Adhesive Dots on this one. It’s fairly monochromatic, but I used foam adhesive and an edge distresser to add interest and I’m very happy with how it turned out.
This one is going to my friend. 🙂 The glittered papers in the stack are very pretty and add so much interest to a project! I layered a doily with another brocade paper and then a circle cut from a glittered paper. The green shape is from the stack, just cut from one of the embellishment sheets. I did add some Kaisercraft paper flowers and Recollections leaves. The sentiment is by Doodlebug. A little more distressing and some distress ink and you have a finished project.
I used more foam adhesive on this one, along with some 3/8″ Xyron Adhesive Dots and the Xyron Mega Runner.
I hope you’ve had a great weekend! By the time you read this, I’ll be busting out some homework. Oh, the joys of being back in school. 🙂
