Welcome to a new feature at Papertrey Ink called Transformation Tuesday.

We all have cards that don’t necessarily turn out the way we had envisioned or a project that we designed to be feminine that could be made masculine with a few tweaks. Some of you may remember the Recipe Remix Challenge from SAF 2013. It’s sort of like that (but with our own projects instead of customer submitted projects). The idea is to show a project transformed into something fresh and new.

Join Stephanie Gold as she takes a card she made that just didn’t feel like her style and gave it a fresh new updated look.

“Besides the twine, something about this card just didn’t feel “me.” I really loved the concept of the cutout with the bright color underneath and I loved the color scheme as well, but I wanted to re-envision it to be more my style. I hope you’ll join me today as I explain my process in how I made this card come to life again!”

  • INK: Pale Peony, Berry Sorbet, True Black, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Green Parakeet
