Although “Sweet Freedom” is considered a themed collection, it’s full of gorgeous patterns that can be used for everyday crafting. It includes some amazing floral designs and subtle patterns that are perfect for nearly any project. Today I want to share with you two cards I created with some of my absolute favorite bits of the “Sweet Freedom” collection.
If you want to craft along, you can watch the full process in the video here:
For my first card, I wanted to create something like a flowerpot and use a couple of the beautiful floral ephemera pieces. To achieve that, I used the WeR Memory Keepers banner punchboard to cut a triangle at the top part of a top-folding card. I made sure the edges are secure so the card won’t fall apart and then I stuck a few flower pieces at the inside of the card, letting them peek through the triangle opening.
To embellish the card I added my sentiment and a few more floral elements. I mixed some of the cardstock and the puffy stickers to add more variety to my little cluster. The final touch was to add a couple of washi strips at the bottom of the card to keep it well balanced.
Next one is a lovely thank you card full of layers and dimension. To create it, I used the WeR Memory Keepers frame punchboard because I wanted to salvage the middle pieces.
I started by rounding the corners on the right edge of my card and then I cut four pieces of patterned paper, each one a little bit smaller than the other. I used the frame punchboard at the half-inch setting and turned the three biggest pieces into frames.
Again, I rounded the right-hand side corners of all the pieces and then I layered them on the card base. When I placed the last layer, I used foam squares instead of regular glue to add a little bit of dimension to the card.
For the sentiment, I used a foiled “Thank You” sticker which I cut into a little banner. I also used one of the dimensional star stickers next to the sticker to embellish it a bit.
I really love the soft colors and patterns of this collection. It’s really fun and exciting to find ways to use “themed” products and collection in regular everyday projects!
