Pressed Petals – Simple Angle Card Design

Today I have some simple yet unique card designs to share featuring the beautiful Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper. It’s a quick and simple angle card design that you can use with any patterned papers to create a fun look!

Creating the Angle Design

Now you can create this angle card design with ANY patterned papers. I chose to use the Pressed Petals Designer Series paper simply because of the beautiful flower designs. There are also a variety of different sized angles that you can create on your card front depending of the size of the piece of patterned paper you are using. However, the concept for creating the angle is the same regardless of what size paper you use. For purpose of illustration, I am featuring a 4 x 4 inch piece of patterned paper.

Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of cardstock and a 4 x 4 inch piece of patterned paper. Start by adding adhesive all around the outside edges of the piece of patterned paper and across the top of the cardstock. Line up the corner of the patterned paper with the right top corner of the cardstock. Use the corner to help guide the placement of the rest of the paper. Turn the patterned paper on an angle while keeping the corner of the paper flush with the top right corner of the cardstock. Once you have that angle look, as featured above, adhere the patterned paper down. Now flip over the paper and trim off the excess with your scissors.

Pressed Petals Card Ideas

The first two cards I have to share feature a 4 x 4 inch piece of the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper to create the angled look on the cards.

The first angle card design is just a 4 x 4 inch piece of patterned paper angled on the top part of a piece of vanilla cardstock with a stamped sentiment on the bottom. It’s a quick and simple card idea and a great way to showcase your patterned papers.

For the second card, I used the pattern on the front and the back of the designer paper together. Simply cut a 4 x 4 and a 2 x 4 inch piece of one of the patterned papers. Use one side of the paper for your 4 x 4 inch piece and use the other side of the paper for the 2 x 4 inch. For this card, the 2 x 4 inch flowery piece is adhered directly across the center of the 4 x 4 inch newsprint piece before it is angled on the card. Then I simply added a bit of lace trim around the edges of the patterned paper.

Stepped Up Designs

The last set of cards I have to share feature the same type of angle card design with a few slight modifications. You can easily step up any card design by adding some additional layers, ribbon and embellishments.

The first card showcases the 4 x 4 inch piece of patterned paper with a piece of cardstock matted behind it. Simply cut a 4-1/4 x 4-1/4 inch Blueberry Bushel cardstock matte and adhere it to the patterned paper; then go ahead and create the angle card design.

The second card features the angle card design on the top and bottom of a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. For this card, I used a 2 x 4 inch piece of patterned paper on the top and bottom to create the angled look. The card was finished off with a bit of vanilla lace trim and some pearls.
