Hues of Happiness and the Split Card Texture Die
January 28, 2023
On Thursday I shared that I cut out all the flowers from the Hues of Happiness DSP. Why did I do this? One thing I realized when I packed up my craft room was I had a LOT of paper especially patterned paper. I mean a lot. I love paper and honestly I am not the best at using it. I love certain designs so much that I don't want to use it. Huh? Sound familiar? Well, I am trying to change my ways and am now making more of an effort to use and enjoy my paper and not save it. I thought that if I cut out the flowers from the Hues of Happiness DSP I would use it. This was a good decision. I have made a bunch of cards using the flowers and have been thinking about the flowers and other ways to use them. The flowers are color sorted and waiting patiently for me to use them. Today's card was on my mind and I had to make it even though there were lots of other things I needed to do.
I used the Split Card Textures dies and added the Hues of Happiness flowers along the split. Since the flowers and leaves were already cut out, this card came together easily and it made it easy to make other decisions like color. I used the Gorgeous Grape and Fresh Freesia flowers which made me think about the Fine Shimmer Paper Pack which has a Fresh Freesia paper. I cut the Fresh Freesia Shimmer Paper a little larger than the Split Card Texture so it would show through behind the cutouts and also act as a layer. Everything is layered on a Gorgeous Grape card base. The dots look black in this picture but they are actually Gorgeous Grape Glossy Dots.
Inside of the card I added a strip of the Fresh Freesia Shimmer Paper and another flower from the Hues of Happiness DSP. The sentiment is from the Framed Florets set stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink.
I hope in this picture you can see the shimmer of the Fresh Freesia Fine Shimmer Paper. This paper is so pretty and in the pack there are 6 sheets (2 each of Fresh Freesia, Soft Succulent and Gold).
