For the LOVE of PAPER!!!

Octopus Love

Today I have several versions of a card featuring the Octopus from Birthday Bash.   The Octopus is cut at 4" in polka dot paper and then 4 1/2" in solid so that his tentacles look like there is an underside, for all of the cards.   The cards are all 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" square but the mat paper and sentiments are different..  

The mat paper for this first card is from Studio G and the frame is from Just Because Cards, the Flower 2 frame, at 5", this is the negative from the cut, I cut it down to frame the octopus.  The sentiment is in a frame that is the same cut but, I used the cuts, cut at 1 3/4" and 2".   I added some punched hearts and a sentiment from My Pink Stamper, Lunchbox Thoughts.

The chevron printed paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle 'Splash' collection.  The sentiment is the same as above but, I added some small charcoal pearls and then a stamp from Hero Arts, down the side, in purple.

I also added the same stamp and a strip of paper to the inside of this one.

Last are the dots from Little Yellow Bicycle's Splash line.   The Scrappy Mom sentiment was stamped onto the same paper as the octopus and I added brads to the corners of the frame and a small strip of paper to the left side of the card.
