Perfect paper to celebrate the arrival of spring! This was my first purchase of paper made by Ella and Viv Paper Company and I will be ordering more soon. This paper has brilliantly bright colors that were easy to match with my existing paper stash, and it is the perfect weight for card making. There is a wonderful amount of white space that helps make the flowers pop off the paper! Check out my gallery in a few days to see the card I am making using this paper. Have a great day!
Used in this card: Center Opening Birthday Card (Front)
I have several Ella & Viv's collections and I've never been disappointed with any of them. I planned on using the paper to cover my card front and then add some kind of layer, topper or die cut on top of it. No matter what I tried I just couldn't bring myself to cover the paper up!
I finally decided to cut the opening edge of the A2 card with a stitched ripple die. I then cut the paper to cover the card front excluding the ripple. Before attaching the paper to the card I tied a thin bit of white cotton crochet lace around it. I attached it to the card front, cut out a Ornate Label, stamped "Hello" in the center of the label and attached it with foam tape to the bottom right of the card. I happened to have a few stems of white babies breath paper flowers in my stash, so I placed a stem under the label.
The "Field of Flowers" paper is the star of the card, the little flowers and label just gives it a tiny bit of wham.
I wish I had thought of photographing the card before I sent it off!!
I will be buying more of this paper.
A very beautiful pattern! Great paper quality that is a pleasure to shape and work with and cooperates easily with all my paper punches and dies.
Just wish I had tried the Ella and Viv papers sooner! Love them!
