Pick-Me-Up Card Trio by Zsoka Marko

How GORGEOUS is this card trio by design team member Zsoka Marko?!
Hey there, Zsoka here to share three new cards I've made for the Paige Evans + Silhouette Design Team!
I pulled out some of my favorite papers from the gorgeous Pick-Me-Up collection - I just love the peach and berry tones! I started with the peach color card (the peach paper is from the 6x6 Paper Pad). I cropped the Bend Up Flower Petals cut file so I only had a semi-circle left and sized it down to fit into a  4 x 5.25" rectangle. Then I sent it to my Silhouette Cameo. I cut a 4.25 x 5.5" piece from the white-gold patterned paper which you can also find in the 6x6 Paper Pad. I adhered the gold foil paper onto my A2 size top folding card base then I added the cut file panel on top. I machine stitched around the edges.

I wasn't sure how to decorate this card because the cuts are so tiny! In the end I kept it very simple so that the cut file could shine. I just added a few gold Chipboard Sticker pieces, some gold tangled thread, and a heart button from the Haberdashery Multi-Pack. It sounds simple, and when you want to re-create it, it doesn't take long at all, but I'll tell you I didn't finish this card in one sitting because I had no idea how to finish it, ha! I love how it turned out though!

For my next card, I cut a lot of the Daisy Flower Borders from white cardstock. I sized them down to look good on a card. Originally I wanted to create a white on white background that looked like lace, but then ended up using patterned paper anyway. I can't deny my nature it seems :)

Again, I cut a 4.25 x 5.5" piece of purple floral paper from the 6x6 Paper Pad then made a diagonal cut. I adhered this onto my top folding card base. I layered some of the daisy borders on the top white part and stitched them down using my sewing machine. To finish off my card, I added some gold tangled thread, a sentiment from the Ephemera Die Cuts (I popped this up for some dimension), and a die cut butterfly.

Now for my third card. I had a lot of the daisy borders left and I was not going to throw them away, so I created a third card! For this, I used the pink ombre striped paper, also from the 6x6 Paper Pad. I cut out one of the darker pink stripes because I only needed 5 stripes and I wanted to keep both the darkest and the lightest colors. I reassembled the papers on my A2 size top folding card base. By the way, the five strips are almost exactly this size, I only had to cheat a little bit and that is hidden under one of the flower borders!

I added a die cut frame using foam adhesive, as well as a couple of other pieces from the Ephemera Die Cuts. I fussy cut 3 butterfly-moths (haha!) and attached these to the frame as well. I tucked some gold tangled thread under my die cuts and added a few pink sequins from the Haberdashery Multi-Pack.

I hope you like these cards and are inspired to create your own! Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful day!
