Latest & Greatest Card Making with Echo Park Paper

Hey there Stamp & Scrapbook Expo friends and fans, Becki here to share a card with you that I created with fun products from Echo Park Paper that were featured in our Latest & Greatest Card making classes. I love creating wedding cards and having them on hand for when the occasion arises. This is one of those cards. I don’t have a wedding to attend in the near future but now, I do have a wedding card ready to go for the next time I need one. The pink and black color scheme in the Echo Park Paper Wedding Bliss collection is so pretty. I used a few die cuts, some patterned paper and some black and white ribbon to create this card. The patterned paper in 6×6 paper pads is perfect for card making. I love the smaller scaled patterns and smaller pieces of paper for creating cards. One of my favorite ways to add texture and a homemade look to my cards is with machine stitching and ribbon. Those two elements make cards have a much more “finished” look to them. I’d love to know, do you create cards ahead of time or do you create a card when the need arises? Let me know in the comment section below, I’d love to chat about card making with you. Thank you for stopping by the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo blog. I’ll see you again here next Thursday. Have a great week!

    I make cards as the occasion arises. It’s such a pleasure to think about the recipient while I am cutting and pasting.

    I love that wedding card! I generally make my cards ahead of time. I try to keep a good stash on hand so I can still pick one that suits the recipient. But if I have time and a good idea, I enjoy making cards for a specific person/occasion, too.

    I usually create cards ahead of time, except it seems for special weddings, I do them unique for the recipients. I love your card! Pink, black and white or cream – one of my favorite color schemes!! I have a question: are there any helpful hints you can give me for machine stitching on cards? I would love to try it again. My first attempt years ago resulted in torn paper. Thank you !!!!
