Papertrey Ink - Design Team Tips

                       PAPERTREY INK - DESIGN TEAM TIPS

Happy Fri-yay!! I'm here today on the Papertrey Ink Blog to share my DT Tips. And.... it's all about all of those fabulous alphabet dies and how they can be enhanced in such a lovely way by using any of your pretty petite florals and greenery! 


This little trio of 4.25 x 5.5" (A2) cards all start with a good helping of Classic Kraft.  All of the color (Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, Blueberry Sky) is provided by the petite blooms/leaves from the Fancy Foliage Dies and a few Nuvo glossy dot accents.


There are so many pretty PTI flower stamps and/or dies that would work so beautifully here...... a good example would be the Nesting dies, as there are four different sized leaves AND an assortment of pretty flowers. However, there are many lovely sets that have smaller accent stamps/dies that would work so well too, many of which you may have as part of your PTI collection. 


I've kept things very CAS, with identical layering (Noted: Pinked A2 Vertical/Pierced Feature Frames  dies) and sentiment (Keep It Simple: Friendship), for quick and easy duplication. My thinking is.... if you're going to make one card, might as well two or three more and add to the card stash!






I'm hoping that this will inspire you to break out your basic alphas, a few petite florals and a versatile sentiment to create your own set of greetings!
