Do you like your pattern paper full on or as a subtle peek? Well I think the Bright and Beautiful Pattern paper, that is part of the Beautiful Balloons suite, is amazing! And beacause it's so good I had to share 2 ways . I also wanted to showcase 2 particularly dies from the coordinating dies. The Beautiful Balloons dies I wanted to use are the ones circled below.
The smaller one die cuts out the little shapes and leaves a lovely peekaboo through a cardstock mat. I then placed some of the lovely bright and beautiful pattern paper behind it.
The second die is the long one. This one creates lots of thin slits. Now this can create lots of fringes. Which works great with the pattern paper.
So here's my first card...
I chose to use 2 of the returning colours a dark shade of teal called pretty peacock and a lighter one called lost lagoon.
For the second card I used the fringe to make a flounce along the bottom of the card.
