Transformation Tuesday // Papertrey Ink

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.

    Love the clean new look but it remains soft and pretty. You said you didn’t have a layer on top of the berry sorbet but it is a white front. Seems you cut the tag from the stamped white piece then glued it on top of the colored cardstock. What am I missing here. Does the paper come in berry on one side and white on the other?

      Silly me. I wasn’t very clear when I wrote that, was I? I meant I didn’t want extra layers popped up on my card like the first one has. This one does have a white layer on top but I adhere it flat so it doesn’t add more dimension. I hope that helps. 🙂

    I had to come over—-I LOVE the re-make of your card Stephanie! The tag with the berries on it just seem to meld into what you’ve already done on the card base, but pops from the sentiment & the shadow it gives, along with the darker card stock behind it! I LOVE the lining being darker too! WHAT SUPER TOUCHES to your re-made card! I’m gonna have to remember these touches as I learn CAS! 😉

    I liked the first card but the new card is even prettier. Simpler is better!

    Oh I love your revised version! That peek of Berry Sorbet underneath the tag really does it for me! wow! I’m really feeling that little bit of twine, too — it’s just enough to focus on the tag/sentiment. I love this new blog feature!
