One of The Ignored Ways To Decorate Clean And Simple Cards | Pink And Main

Patterned details on the hand made cards are not only creating realistic images, but are also drawing viewers' attention to your cards.

Good news - you do not need to learn drawing patterns. There is a simple card making technique.
Paper Pieced Card
Hello, Everyone!

Paper Piecing is one of the techniques which is often ignored today by Clean and Simple card makers. Although this is a powerful technique for adding interesting details to your cards.

I enjoy colouring and drawing, however my skills are limited and I would not be able to draw a nice realistic pattern on the cloth covering my strawberry jam jar.
Paper Pieced Card
For my today's card I used one of the new stamps and dies sets, which was released just a few days ago - Pretty Jars from Pink And Main.

This set contains two images of jars which you can fill in with smaller images of hearts, a candle, put in a bunch of flowers, decorate with a hanging heart or paper label, as well to cover with a lid or cloth cover. There are so many options with just one set!
Paper Pieced Card
To make my card I started with stamping a smaller jar from the Pretty Jars set onto a white card stock panel and covering it with a fussy cut out mask.

I have a hand made rectangular mask with a window made from a piece of acetate to mask off the edges of the panel.

I applied this mask to the panel and blended two shades of blue Distress ink through the window.

Having removed all the masks I coloured the jar with Copic Sketch markers.

I also die cut a cloth cover from a piece of the Sunset paper and stamped the image onto the die cut. Then I coloured this die cut with Copic Sketch markers.
Paper Pieced Card
To assemble my card I foam mounted the panel onto a soft grey card note and popped the paper pieced cover with a super thick tape.
