Part Two: Use What You Have-Pattern Paper

Hello my crafty friends, welcome to today's post and if you're back for part two- thank you!  Time management is not my strongest suit so my work flow is broken into many days-from coming up with five different card designs to the actual creating of each design.  I will try to fare better but to be really honest, this is the best that I can do now.  But in the mean time, do enjoy these other two cards.


I used my distress oxides to add more color to this particular paper, it's a beautiful paper- don't all paper hoarders say that? but I felt I needed more.  I guess I was thinking I could practice some other techniques to come up with a card.  
  





Here's a short simplified way on how I did this card-from coloring to die-cutting , just in case if there's anyone wondering how.



For this last card, I used this intricate mandala dies to cut out shapes from this paper with small squares.  I was a bit worried that this card would be too busy but was pleasantly surprised that the dies actually did those paper some justice and that it turned out better than I thought.  I didn't think it was a good idea to use an intricate die with such a busy background but I was glad I went through with this idea anyway.



That's all of my cards made using supplies that's readily available in my stash.  I am pretty sure you have some lying around somewhere and hopefully you find some more ideas from my cards.  See you, bye!
