Wallpaper Panel Card

Good day! Hope all is well in your world. My laptop keyboard died on me yesterday so I had to resurrect my old computer with Vista on it. It is always nice to have a backup. :-)

Several months ago I bought a roll of texture wallpaper at a thrift store. I happened to find a roll with panels which are almost the perfect size for a standard 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 card. I was going to color it with watercolor paint until I bought myself gelatos. I'm having so much fun using them along with the Inka Gold that I found in a clearance aisle.Reminder to self don't forget to check out the clearance aisles.

This is what it looks like still on the roll. There are lots of different patterns out there this just happened to be what the thrift store had. I'm too cheap to pay full retail price.

And here is my card

I used Inka Gold for the outside trim of the panel. Where the blue is I wet a brush and wiped it over the gelato stick and then brushed it on. The green was scribbled on and the blended with my finger. Using a wallpaper panel like this makes for a quick card.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving comments. I am off to finish packing craft supplies for a play date with my sister. I'm so excited. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!


  1. How fortunate to have found a perfect match. Lovely card.
    At one time I looked for the wallpaper but the pattern was miles too big so of course now I had forgotten about this technique.

  2. Great card
    I can never pass on a visit to our local DIY. I managed to get some ' samples' of a patchwork paper the other week, so pretty and it chopped up into lots of card sized pieces. I embossed all the smaller pieces.

  3. Lovely idea to use the wallpaper. I hope you and your sister had fun!
