Paper Tole Dogwoods Birthday Card

Have you heard, paper tole is making a come back how sweet is this!
Normally you will have 5 layers for a paper tole project I have only used 3 layers here 
as this card is for a cousin overseas. 
 For my image I used Hero Arts - Dogwood Stamp and
Stampin Up! sentiment from Simply Sketched set.

 I stamped it 3 times the middle is my card base. 
Then watercoloured the flowers in Peach and 
leaves in Chartreuse using Heidi Swap Color Shine.

I have to tell you that I'm real happy that Distress colours 
do not wash out when painted over. :)
Rough cut out of flowers.
Cut the centres and leaf from this sheet.
Here the flowers, centres and leaf have been trimmed and
shaped. All edges coloured with Antique Linen Distress Marker
and ready for attaching with pop dots
 to base shown.

Thanks for your visit today! Jutta                                                    


  1. Your cousin will be delighted! Very nice card Jutta. I remember paper tole being popular about 15 years ago, and then 12 or so years before that! I never tried it, the proper way, but love the look. Great card!

    1. Yes it's come around a couple of times and I thank my lucky stars for pop dots this time. Last time around it was done with silicone caulking. eww!

Hello and welcome, I'm having a lot of fun mono printing with my gel plate these days. One of the things I enjoy is the unpredictability...
