Wonders Cards by Zsoka Marko

Monday, May 17, 2021

Hi there friends, Zsoka Marko stopping by today to share a card duo I've created for the Paige Evans Design Team! I've used the gorgeous Wonders collection on these.

I change my mind a lot. Like, ALL.THE.TIME. This started out as a layout - with the same design, only the triangles were bigger. I wanted to create a grid layout with them and use maybe (4) 2x2 photos as well. Maybe that's an idea you can use? I didn't, because I liked the triangles on a white background the most and I am no white background scrapper. Looking at it, it was just not me. Had I had super light gray cardstock, or even better, patterned paper (there was one in one of Paige's older collections, but I don't have it anymore), I would have gone with that. So, what's a girl to do with all the cut-up paper pieces? Use them on cards of course!

I started out by cutting apart the paper with all the 2x2" squares on it, Paper 20, then I cut all of them in half. I didn't use all of them on these cards, I chose the more solid ones and those that didn't have a white background. For the card on the left, I cut this triangle in half again, for the card on the right I cut the smaller triangle in half once more.

I cut two slimline card panels (3.5x8.5") from Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock and started adding the triangles on them in a rainbow kind of order to see if they would even fit this size. And they did! Once I figured out the arrangements, I started gluing them down. I was planning to stitch them down in the middle and wanted to be able to curl them up too, so I only added a teeny tiny bit of liquid adhesive in the middle. When the panels were done, I added zig zag machine stitching. I then created two side folding card bases and glued my panels on top.

Now comes the fun part! Creating dimension! I just used my fingers to curl up each triangle. I actually really liked the look where I only did the top triangles of each square but then I wanted to see what it would look like if I did all of them... And then there was no turning back :D

Both sentiments are from the 2x2 Paper Pads. I just cut out the part I needed. I think one said "It's Time to Celebrate", the other had some icon right above it, as far as I remember. I went tone-on-tone with these, well kind of. The green sentiment sits on a green and a blue square, the purple is placed between blue and purple squares.

To finish off the cards, I added a few gold heart Puffy Stickers and some gold paint splatters.

That's it! Super simple! Maybe one day I'll try this design on a layout too, hehe! Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope I could inspire you in one way or another. Have a great day!
