did someone say CONFETTI...
Just saying the word "confetti" brings something to mind, right? Fun...a little bit of this and that...color. This week at American Crafts it is all about that one party favorite. In the card above I began with the stitched garland paper banner as the foundation for my "string of confetti". Layering on puffy stickers and punched circles from paper.
Do you ever find that you have scrap pieces of ribbon lying around that need to find a project home? Here I cut ribbon, used a double sided adhesive sheet (like icraft from Therm O Web) layered on a piece of paper and added the pieces of ribbon. Press down firmly to make sure the pieces are adhering to the to paper. I then added stitching.
This last card uses the more traditional presentation of confetti in a glassine envelope; however, went a little larger with the pieces. Created a bit of a shaker card effect.
Hope you enjoyed these projects and make sure to head on over to American Crafts to see some amazing layouts, altered projects and much more this week using CONFETTI!
P.S. I will be taking a couple of days to finish up a few project here and spend the weekend with friends. Will be back on Monday with a new project tutorial and giveaway! Stay tuned.
