I know this is not a super exciting tutorial, but it’s one that needed to be in the resource section of SCS. So here is the card I made with for the paper piecing tutorial.
The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Purely Pomegranate cardstock folded in half. The edges of the card front were sponged.
The black layer measures 3 3/4″ square. The 3 1/2″ square of Whisper White dry embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing folder. On the bottom I added a 1 1/4″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Bali Breeze Designer paper. All the corners were punched with the ticket corner punch. 5/8″ wide Olive grosgrain ribbon was tied around those layers.
I stamped the bird from Fun & Fast Notes in Black Stazon once on textured Soft Sky cardstock and three more times on different patterns of Bali Breeze Designer paper. I cut out the bird on the cardstock with an oval Nestabilities template, sponged the upper edges with Soft Sky, the lower ones with Old Olive and layered the oval on a slightly bigger sponged scallop Purely Pomegranate oval. I cut pieces of the Bali Breeze paper images out and taped them to my Soft Sky image. Last I paper pierced a border to the Soft Sky layer. The image was attached to the card with dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the bird image on Whisper White cardstock, cut it down to 3/8″ strip and rounded the left hand side with my Window Word Punch. I taped it to the lower right hand side and added 1/4″ black circle with a small blue rhinestone brad in it’s center to the right.
