Day 6 - Patterned Papers

I love collecting beautiful Christmas papers and have quite a stash in my studio... most of it hasn't been used because it's just too darn pretty to cut!
I created this card from a gorgeous pad of 6"x6" papers called Cozy Xmas by Karola Witczak.  I happened to find it in a tiny little store on one of my crafting excursions... it was the last one on the shelf!
 
 
YOUR TURN: Create a card using patterned paper and a minimum of embellishments.

I've got lots of lovely paper pads - might be hard to choose which one to use!

Sue said...

Yes, I certainly can relate to this. I have far too many papers that are just for looking at!
Your card is gorgeous, such beautiful papers and wonderful design.

Lovely card. The papers are great and the layout a great way to use up leftovers or, perhaps, to part with just a tiny bit of each design?

Gorgeous patterned paper! I must admit I'm hooked on those 6x6 pads but I only buy them when they're on sale - so pricey they are!

I too love 6x6 pads. I have quite a stack of them. The challenge is to use them for an occasion for which they were not intended e.g. a floral for a Christmas card or this snowflake design for a birthday card.

I collected these beautiful paper too but had not used them because they are too beautiful.

Wow!! This card is gorgeous. I love these papers and it's all so subtle. Thank you for showing us that a gorgeous card can be a very simple one.

What a lovely card! My collection of paper is way too big - I do cut into much of it - but even so, I think I have enough to last for several life times!

Donna said...

This is so gorgeous! I love the patterned paper in pads. I don;t have to think about matching because it already does! So easy!
