Twitterpated Designer Series Paper Had Me Stumped!

I didn't order Twitterpated Designer Series Paper (DSP) until last week, because the bold designs had me stumped.  You may have noticed that I shy away from using really bold patterns because I usually think of DSP for backgrounds.  And boldly patterned backgrounds detract from my focal point.  So I decided to challenge myself to use one of the Twitterpated designs that I really love as a focal point instead of background.  Here's what I came up with.

Twitterpated-Flower-Card

I just love the sweet flowers and great colors in the DSP.  Since I couldn't find any way to use it as a background that I could live with, I got out my new Blossom Punch and love how the paper works as a flower.  I also used the Boho Blossoms Punch and a Twitterpated Button.  Too cute, don't you think?

I used the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, and love the way the two layers look together.  Click here to see a video on how to emboss the Framed Tulips on different sizes of card stock.  (It was one of my earlier videos, and I hadn't figure out how to flip the video yet, so please excuse the upside down view!)

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!  If bold Twitterpated Designer Series Paper patterns have you stumped, see if you can make them the focal point instead of the background!

    Pretty card and great use of Twitterpated and the Tulip embossing folder. Thanks for reminding us about your tutorial. I hadn’t watched it previously since I didn’t have the folder than. I have it now and also another great way to use it thanks to you! TFS!

    Sage-Love the card–I’m wondering if it’s just the way your card was positioned when photographed, but the solid flower behind the Twitterpated one looks larger….is it? and if so…how did you do it? Thanks for sharing! Dawn
