Moroccan Tile Birthday Card

A couple of weeks ago I was sent some beautiful new decoupage papers from Craft Consortium. They are very soon to be released and I have had the privilege of crafting with them already. As I was looking through all the pretty papers, one particular design caught my eye and it’s this Moroccan tile paper (called ‘Marrakesh’).

I know decoupage papers are for decoupaging and I’m sure there are some gorgeous projects out there to be made, but my main love is cardmaking so I’ve made a birthday card!

I started by backing a piece of the tile decoupage paper on some blue textured card to give it some strength, and then adhered this panel to an A6 card blank using foam tape. Next I cut a pennant shape from metallic adhesive card and placed it on the right, adding the bottom half of a heart doily over the top. The heart doily is from Craft Consortium’s Santoro Kori Kumi range, and you get 4 different colours in the pack – white, yellow, light blue and red.

I got James to write me the ‘happy birthday’ sentiment with his nice gold calligraphy ink and stuck a little enamel heart on it (again from the Kori Kumi range – there are hearts, flowers and dots in the pack).

My mum noticed the card as it was sat on my desk awaiting photography and loved the papers so much I gave her a sheet. So I think this design has a lot of appeal! I can imagine it being decoupaged to make a pretty side table or in the centre of a dressing table, but alas I have no tables to decoupage at present.
