Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop - Pretty Papers
Hey there! Daniel here, with the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop and today we feature pretty papers available now in the shop. These prints have a Brutus Monroe feel, of course, are totally unique and very beautiful.
I created a gatefold card for you today, using the Rustic Florals Paper Collection and the bird and branch images from the Feathered Friends Stamp Set.
To begin I trimmed down the darkest sheet of the Rustic Florals to 4.25’ by 3”. Then i trimmed a piece of black and white polka dot paper to a thin strip. And I cut another piece of dark gray striped paper to 4.25 x 2.25”.
I blended some Raven Detail ink to the bottom edge of the Rustic Floral piece and the top edge of the striped piece. This added a subtle detail to the card, but I liked it.
Then, I adhered the patterned paper to an A2-sized panel and cut it down the middle length-wise.
Then, I stamped the bird and branch images from the Feathered Friends stamp set onto some white cardstock and colored them in with colors that coordinated with the Rustic Florals paper. Using my Brother Scan N Cut, I cut the image out. I cut a piece of vellum to outline the bird and branch and adhered it to the back of the image.
I created an A2-sized card base from 110 lb cardstock and scored it at 3.25’ and 7.75” to create a gatefold. Then I adhered the patterned paper panels to both sides of the front panels of the gatefold.
Then, I heat embossed the sentiment, Happy Birthday, from the Feathered Friends Stamp Set, onto some black cardstock. I trimmed it down to a strip and adhered it to the front right panel to finish off the card.
I hope you enjoyed this pretty paper card! Below, you’ll find a grid of supplies if you’re interested in shopping for any of the items I mentioned today. Please continue to hop along with my team mates using the links below the grid!
