Cards with Confection Collection for Authentique Papers

Standard

Hello there friends and Authentique Fans! Ginny here with a selection of cards created with the oh so fun Confection Collection.  I expected to like this collection but once I stared playing with it I could not stop! I mean it has sprinkles and doughnuts and ice creams!

Confection Cards Polly's Paper Studio

The bright colors really drew me in as well as the whimsical images.

Just Add Sprinkles Shaker Greeting Cards Polly's Paper Studio 02

This first card is a shaker. I could not resist topping that cone with a sequin mix perfect for the ice cream colors.  Looks like cherry and pistachio?  I cut the frame and added the fun sentiment from the die cut sheet then topped it with coordinating flowers. That gorgeous minty color is Spectrum  Robin’s Egg Cardstock. not only for the frame but also to mat the patterned papers.

Hey There Cupcake Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

Since I didn’t need to leave room for a large frame for this card I was able to work in more of those patterned papers.  The image is cut with a circle die and popped up on foam spacers for loads of dimension. It also has a border of the sweet pink pattern on the back of the cut apart sheet. More flowers here and another sentiment…this time added with spacers to make it more of a focal element.  The Be Happy image clipped to the top of the card is actually the center cut from the doughnut image from one of the other cards. I think it looks pretty cute added as a secondary sentiment.

Dessert Shaker Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

Here is another shaker card. This time instead of the focal image being inside the shaker I chose to create a mini shaker and added it to the sentiment.  It’s fun and it helps to make sense of the large yellow block on the mostly pink and blue color scheme. I didn’t include flowers on this card but there are added details like the sequins, crisp white doily, and another clipped on die cut.

Enjoy Doughnuts Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

Last but not least is the Enjoy Doughnuts card. Once again I got out my circle die to trim this image from it’s background. There’s a layer of that sweet pink border and the center was cut out so I could tuck in the sentiment. I liked the idea of including that sprinkle pattern instead of leaving it all pink in the center. Coordinating flowers are arranged with some loopy twine bows and leaves cut from holographic cardstock. A simple bow and sequins and this is one sweet greeting card.

  1. The use of the holographic paper for leaves is such a creative surprise!! I never would have thought to reach so far out-of-the-box for this one. Lovely cards that would be perfect to send to adults. I would have used this collection for the little folks, but you’ve broadened my horizons on this one. Nice work!
