Hello! Today I wanted to share 2 cards I created with the Chasing Pavements Scrapbook Kit. I love love LOVE the color combination in this kit, and my favorite paper in the kit was the triangle patterned paper shown below. I love how it shows movement, so I wanted to jump on that and used it facing different directions. This leads your eye right to the sentiment:)
For my next card...I have been wanting to create a little confetti pocket on a card for a long long time. I pulled a vellum envelope from my stash and punched a bunch of confetti from the cardstock and the striped Echo park patterned paper that was included in the kit.
I added confetti in the envelope and then what I had left I added to the outside of the envelope. To do this, I painted mod podge on the area I wanted the confetti pieces, sprinkled the confetti on that spot, then after a few minutes, I painted more mod podge over the confetti to make it stay.
It is kinda fun to shake the card and watch the confetti move around:) Also, I love that Jillibean alpha...it is just the perfect size for adding sentiments on cards without being to overwhelming:)
Have you tried a new technique or something trendy lately? I think a card is a good starting point...I like trying things on a smaller scale first before I try it on a layout!
