From Venice with Love by Pauline Bird
What do I need?
Wish You Were Here Craft Paper Collection
Side stepper card blank
Dark blue card
Computer & printer (optional)
Dark blue adhesive pearls
Cover the card front with gold paper mounted on dark blue card, then cover the step behind in the same way. Cut a topper, leaving a thin white border and mount on dark blue card. Fix to the left of the card front at an angle using foam pads. Create a rosette by concertina folding dark blue card and sticking the ends together. Computer generate (or stamp) a sentiment, die-cut or use a circle punch and attach to the centre of the rosette. Adhere to the bottom right of the card front. Add dark blue pearls to the card front to finish.
Want to see how to make more from the collection? Perhaps one of your friends is off to Florida, or a sister is swanning around Santorini! This project was taken from the August issue of Making Cards, which you can find here! If you just want the papers then you can buy them, along with our Petals and Paws collection, straight from our online craft shop!
