She says: I’ve made two simple cards with the Cienna line, this line is so sweet and perfect for baby cards. On the first one, I loved the patchwork paper and wanted to use it in the background. I didn’t want to cover up too much of the pretty pattern, so I just added a few little layered die cuts from the Cienna Bits and Pieces package and some leaves cut from the Flowers paper. A little piece of twine on the tag and a little bundle of seam binding add a soft feel to the card.
The second card was also made with 3 different papers from the Cienna line– the Hello Beautiful paper, the Flowers paper and the Lots of Love paper. Added a Cienna wood veneer, twine and a few Bits and Pieces. The Sticker is from the Cienna stickers.
Layering papers/die cuts is made easy when you choose large, medium and small patterns in the papers and die cuts you chose to go together on your card! Varying scale will keep the look interesting, and by choosing a line to work with like the Cienna line, the hard work of mixing and matching patterns is already done for you! I hope this inspires you to use more patterned papers on your next card.
Thank you so much, Danielle!
