Hi friend.  There are always so many pretty papers in the main kit and this week, I am featuring the Congratulations paper which has a diamond pattern. The colours are perfect for a sweet photo of a great-grandmother and grandson.

I turned the paper so that the diamonds are vertical and I’ve removed the top section to create an aperture.  I imagined flowers poking out from the aperture the way they do in a bunch of flowers.

I’ve added crepe paper from the embellishment pack to make a small frill and give the opening definition and then layered the die-cut flowers – they are so bright and cheery.

To make the white background more interesting, I’ve carefully stencilled up to the diamond pattern for a pretty, seamless finish. I have used a stencil from a previous Color Kit which are always great value for money.

After creating a large tag to mat the photo, I matted again onto a Pocket Life card. To finish the bottom edge,  with a border punch.  I have set the title vertically for a change.

I finished off the smaller flower cluster with the wooden and epoxy button – they add such a lovely pop of interest.

You can see the full process on our YouTube channel:

I hope that are inspired to  use this pretty paper in a slightly different way.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
