Going From Printed Paper to a Card

There are soooo many different kinds of PP (printed paper) for all of us card makers, scrap bookers, and paper crafters to choose from that it can really make your head start to spin!

I like to take the PP and make a card using a large portion of the printed paper but changing it up a bit. I think it can be a fun and a bit of a challenge to see how much of the 12 x 12 PP I can add to the card.

This is the piece of 12 x 12 PP that I started with.
This is the card that I designed using most of the PP. This was a graduation card for my friend Kelli's Daughter. There is no stamping on the outside of this card, but instead painting. I used twinkling H2o's to do the painting. The water was done by painting with the twinkling H2o's and then crystal effects and then adding little micro beads. I also added lime green stickles (Ranger) to give it so added sparkle and some colored acrylic flat beads (The Robin's Nest) to add some dimension.
Hope you have a great day and thanks for looking!!
