Hits & Highlights–Pastel Patterned Paper Passion


What’s your pattern passion? Whether dots, stripes, or florals, we have you covered with our collection of patterned paper packs. This month, we’ve challenged our designers to work their magic with a specific group of them — it’s all about the pastels! Check out how these soft MFT colors have been worked into a variety of beautiful projects from the team.


I adore the Graphic Grid papers and the pastel collection is one of my favorites. And since I also have a huge crush on the recently released Triangle STAX Die-namics, I decided to have them team up for this card. I wanted a little subtle interest for my card front so I heat embossed Bundles of Blossoms Background in white, then popped it up on foam on the card base. Then I cut triangles from different colors of Graphic Grid Pastel Paper Pack and adhered them to the card front, also popped up on foam. I added several cut from Silver Sparkle card stock for more interest and texture.


Finally, I cut Twice the Thanks Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock three times, layered them up and adhered them to the triangles. I love how this turned out—love the contrast of the grid papers and the floral background!

And there you have it! Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
