Happy New Year! To start off this brand new year at Vintage Udfordring, Andreas designed a wonderfully layered sketch to inspire our creativity. My dear friend Holly, who lives in the Netherlands sent some of my very most favorite patterned papers..ever! and I had such fun creating this card with a few of them…
The papers come from a collection called ‘Wintergarden’ by a company called Panduro. They are well known in Europe, but not so much here in the states. I adore their designs…every single one of them! The hardest part is selecting just a few. I want to work with all of them…all at once! I do feel like a little kid when I look through these papers!
I thought I would give you a close up of a little secret time saver I used on this card. I cut the oval accent piece out by hand and wanted to stitch it onto the card. I don’t have the right shade of red floss, so I used my paper piercer to make four slightly irregular holes and drew in the ‘floss’ with a marker. From a typical reading distance, it really does look like a rustic cross stitch! That fabulous coordinating flower button was another one of the fabulous presents that Holly sent~ thank you, thank you, thank you Holly!!
Wishing you good health, happiness and prosperity in the New Year!
