"tweet" - Patterned Paper Passion - DCM

It's been ages since I've participated in the daring cardmakers challenge. I decided it was time to get back into it. This week's challenge is patterned paper passion, and the details are as follows: I want to see 3 different patterned papers on your card. And to be extra daring, why not see if you can use 3 different lines of paper!

Okay! Here's my card:

The patterned papers that I used are by Me and My Big Ideas--the big background, Basic Grey Boxer--the green swirly layer, and Die Cuts with a View Green Stack--birds and branches. The stamped images are by Hero Arts and stamped using Memento dye inks. The decorative border of the green layer was made using the Fiskars Effervescence border punch, and I used the plain and scalloped circles Nestabilities dies by Spellbinders to make the top of the card. The partial Nesties technique let me cut out just part of the circle at the top fold so that it would stick out.

I wouldn't have tried this dare on my own, but it was fun to find out that three patterned papers, all by different companies, can really come together and look nice on one card.


  1. lovely card, I love the birdy paper!

  2. Oh Jay this is a stupendous card - the papers work so well together. thanks for playing along at DCM :)

  3. Great card, your papers work really well together! Love the birds and branches :)

  4. Oh wow Jay, you’ve done a grand job there!

    Although you said you would never have dreamed of putting those three papers together, they look like they were made for each other and I think your card is ‘tweet’! (Sorry couldn’t help myself)

  5. Very nice, I like the papers you have used
