February Card Club Cards

This month for card club I showed my ladies how to use the same piece of paper to make different cards. I chose one piece of CTMH Background & Texture (B&T) paper and based all three cards on that one paper.



The piece of Olive cardstock behind the main image has been scored every 1/8" and then ink rubbed over the raised score lines. It adds a nice texture to it and is so easy and quick to do.


I used a border punch to edge the piece of the card base itself. The Smoothie cardstock piece that shows underneath has also been punched and then adhered to the bottom of the inside of the card base.


The flower was stamped on the Colonial White cardstock and then stamped again on a piece of scrap cardstock, cut out, and pop dotted over the flat stamped image. It adds a nice depth.


And here's the shocker. Yes, that is the same piece of B&T as the other two cards. One of the things that CTMH does is that their paper is double sided. The back of the paper is a monochromatic color of the same print as the front. So for this particular piece of B&T the front used the colors Smoothie & Olive and the backside was a monochromatic version in Olive. Isn't it interesting to see how the cards look so different?

Supplies Used:
Papers: CTMH Mayberry Level 2 Paper Pack, Colonial White, Olive, Cocoa, and Smoothie Cardstocks
Inks: CTMH Cocoa, Olive, and Smoothie
Stamps: CTMH Say It In Style, A Wonderful Friend, Piece Of Cake, Happy Birthday, One Of A Kind, and Thank You
Misc: scoring tool & stylus, flower gem, foam squares, Fiskars border punch
