I’m Elle, one of the Guest Odd Girls this term, and I have a big confession to make. I am a … paper-a-holic. Yes, it’s true. I have veritable towers of patterned paper in my craft room, and I just can’t stop myself from buying shiny new paper pads whenever they come out. Still, I find patterned paper to be one of the most inspiring supplies, and I just love having the perfect background for every image I print or stamp out and color.
The card I’m sharing today features Scooter Mae digi, a super sweet stamp that’s fitting for the summer season. As with all Some Odd Girl digis, once you purchase the stamp, you will receive a large and crisp image that you can resize and print out. If you’re brand new to digital stamps, check out this free guide Kristy has added to the shop. I added the stamp to a Word document and resize it to fit a standard A2 card.
I colored Scooter Mae with my Copics and carefully fussy-cut her with some sharp scissors. Then I jumped into playing with paper!
I chose an older summer-themed paper pad that had the same general tones as my colored image. None of the colors are a perfect match, but this works out well because it makes Mae stand out a little bit better. If I had chosen the very same colors as Mae, the whole card may have looked too busy. Once my papers were chosen, I used my Bigshot to die-cut some fun shapes and add even more interest to the card.
Whenever I finish a card, I always snap a picture, type a quick blurb in my blog and share it in the Some Odd Girl Facebook community. It is the best place to get some great feedback, positivity and encouragement. If you’re not a member yet, hop, skip and run to join us! We would love to have you.
I hope you enjoyed my card! Let me know how you really feel about patterned paper. Is it a staple in your craft room, or something you’d rather do without?
