Five Minute Friday – Totally Trees

I’m a fan of quick and simple cards. Sometimes those over the top cards are just too much. Same thing when it comes to pattern paper. Wild, crazy designs and bold colors are usually not my thing. I had to see the new Petals and Paisley’s Designer Series Paper in action before I ordered it myself. I’ll admit, some of these patterns are just not me. That’s ok though because every sheet is 2-sided. I may not be fond of those giant paisley’s, but the reverse side is just fine.


For today’s card, I used two of the more plain patterns and stamped my own background to tie it all together. The tone-on-tone stamping helps blend it all together. I do like the Mint Macaron color with the Delightful Dijon and it’s not a combination I would have paired together. The circles are all the same size and arranged underneath the main focal point.


I love to use ribbon on my card, but sometimes I get tired of using it the same way all the time. On this card, the ribbon is just folded in half and taped to the back of the main image. I hope you enjoyed today’s Five Minute Friday card. Comment below with what your favorite sheet is from this pack and I’ll use it on my next card.
