Hello! Samantha here with something new. Today I’m combining some pretty patterned paper and stickers to create a pair of encouragement cards using the new This Is Us line.
There are lots of Paper House paper collections that match with a wide variety of the This Is Us collection (Marbellous, Colorwashed, and Stargazer are just a few of them), so the first step was choosing which paper and sticker combo I wanted. I decided on an encouragement theme, and since it’s summer right now, I wanted some bright and cheery encouragment cards. I noticed that papers from Sundrenched fit the bill; they matched the stickers and were bright and cheery.
There are a lot of different types of stickers as part of This Is Us, but I’ve found that 3D stickers make wonderful focal points for cards. Not only do they stand out because they’re 3D, but they often have glitter or foiling (or both) that really draws the eye to them.
I felt like both cards needed just a little something more, so I added a strip of washi tape for a pop of contrasting color and texture.
These are the first cards I created with This Is Us, but since there are so many great choices, I know they won’t be the last!
