Hello friends and welcome to a fun Transformation Tuesday with Papertrey Ink! If you aren’t quite familiar with this new feature, we are basically taking a card we’ve made in the past that we haven’t been 100% happy with, and showing you how we are re-creating it to be something we love!
Today I am working with this card from last year’s Papertrey releases:
Now although I don’t hate this card, it just felt like it was missing my style a bit. I have this weird thing where I like what I make to really feel like *me* and this card just felt a little bit off.
To get started, I went through what I really liked about this card… 1) color scheme, 2) twine, 3) the cutout concept. So with these things in mind and being used as my inspiration, I created a new card.
A couple of the things I really wanted to change about this card were the kraft cardstock, and the notched corners. For some reason, I just wasn’t vibing with them haha. I decided to go with a more clean cut card that felt a little bit more Clean and Simple.
I kept my color scheme basically the same but switched out the Raspberry Fizz for Berry Sorbet. And instead of using the coordinating dies for the cutout concept, I went with one of the Scalloped Tag Dies instead to create a focal point more around my sentiment.
And finally, to keep those clean lined edges, I used a Berry Sorbet card base as opposed to having an extra layer on the top of my card.
Is there a card in your stash you think could benefit from a little transformation?? Don’t wait until next Tuesday, give it a shot now and be sure to enter the contest on the Papertrey Blog for a chance to win a gift certificate to the store. 🙂
That’s it for me today! I can’t wait to see your newest creations! Much love all.
