{PPC/Xyron} Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Perfect Paper Crafting and Xyron blog hop!




I have a really fun and regal card to share with you today! I've used products from both of these amazing companies (which I'll chat about a bit later) as well as some great die cuts from Reverse Confetti: Tag Me, Too confetti cuts, Arrow confetti cut (with the centre fletchings cut out), and Love Note confetti cut (also what I cut the scallop border from).
I used a circle embossing folder on the cream panels and sponged distress ink to soften everything up. I cut the scallop tag again from vellum and loosely adhered it to the cream tag. Those gorgeous gold words were cut from gold foil paper and then ran thru the Xyron 2.5" Create a Sticker to get easily adhere them to the vellum! No mess- easy peasy!

I always use my Perfect Paper Crafting Mini and Perfect Cutting Mat to achieve those perfect layers. My preference is a 1/16" border, but you can choose one of many options, all with the same tool! Use Jenny5% to get a discount in the store :) 


Here is our hop lineup:

Xyron will be giving out prizes EVERY day, so be sure to check their blog out each day of the hop! And Paper Perfect Crafting will be giving away a $50 gift card, so hop along and leave comments to increase your chances of winning!!

I've used this months Colour Challenge for inspiration! And I used the August SFYTT as well, just because it had so many nice layers to show off my PPC tools!!

Jean Bullock said...

Talk about a card being expertly done. Wow. I love the details and careful attention you paid to all the elements of the card. The gold die cuts are perfect and really enhanced this already cool card. Love the little nautical knots around the heart. Did I mention the layers and the stitching? The vellum tag? Everything is really awesome. This would be a great card for either gender too.

FABULOUS card Jenny!!!
LOVE your pretty layers, the varying border widths look great and I think that even though it is really narrow, the 1/16" really POPS ... I struggle to get perfectly straight edges & they show up worse for narrow borders, so I can see that I NEED a Perfect Ruler!!! The gorgeous gold and vellum finish your card off perfectly!!!
THANK YOU for sharing your CREATIVE INSPIRATION and tutorial :)

Sarah Biswabic said...

I know I don't have an art sense, your cards are great.

Parker said...

I wondered how you got the word all sticky so it would adhere. Thanks for telling me it's Xyron's sticker maker. I've never used any Xyron products, so I'm finding out a lot.
