Avery Elle & Authentique Project Inspiration Blog Hop


It's Authentique and Avery Elle week!  This week the Avery Elle design team is playing with Authentique papers, Life Cards and embellishments.  After visiting here, be sure to check out the Authentique Blog for even more inspiration!  We have a fabulous prize up for grabs so be sure to comment on our blogs throughout to week to be entered to win!

For my card, I used a bunch of coordinating Authentique patterned papers to create a totally custom die cut panel!  Since some of the papers are pretty detailed, I went with the simple leaf shapes of the Modern Leaves dies .  I randomly cut a pattern and inlaid the pattern papers.  


For a few of the apertures, I backed them with simple vellum.  I struggled a bit of where I was going to put the sentiment.  It seemed like everywhere I chose, it competed with the patterned paper.  I finally ended up putting it on the card base behind the vellum.  I really like the soft look of the sentiment and the enamel dots behind the vellum.  The dreamy look goes well with the soft look of the papers.  


Don't forget to check out the Authentique Blog and leave some comments on all the blog hop stops to get entered for a fun prize!  Hope you have a fantastic day!

Mahalo and Aloha,
