You know I have a paper problem. Sometimes I love it so much I won’t use it! I think there must be a 12 step program somewhere. In the meantime, I’ve been working on getting myself away from that habit. My current, “It’s too beautiful to use” paper is Sweet Soiree. It’s beautiful. I did use it once about two weeks ago. You can see the post here. I decided to use some more of it for this week’s Global Design Project challenge.

The Global Design Project challenge this week was to CASE (copy) the Designer.

Global Design Project124  I decided to make a square card and also to have a wreath on it.

Design Notes for Sweet Soiree Card:

You have to admit, the paper is really beautiful. I love all of the touches of silver in it and decided to highlight that feature by adding some silver touches – some Silver Baker’s Twine and a few Metallic Enamel Shapes. I made the wreath part from one of the Thinlits in the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits dies. You might be wondering about the flowers. I cut them out from one of the other pieces of paper in the Sweet Soiree package. (Are you proud of me?) I don’t mind fussy cutting. You need good scissors like our Paper Snips. And remember to move the paper not the scissors.

While I was feeling free with the paper, I put a little strip inside.

I also made a second card. At first, I couldn’t decide which color to pick from the Designer Paper to use behind the wreath. Isn’t that a great thing? When you use Designer paper, your choices are easy. Just look on the package or in the catalog and the colors are right there for you.The first card has Rich Razzleberry and the second card has Berry Burst behind the wreath.

On this card, I also used some Silver Metallic Thread around the wreath to accent the silver in the paper.

Tip for Today

When you are fussy cutting, use good scissors and remember to let the paper move.
