I know we are in fall time and so a lot of the projects are rich colors and holiday themes, so I hope you don’t mind me going off in a completely different direction with this bright and cheery card!
This was one of my “scraps” cards. As in, I have a terrible time throwing in my recycling bin any stamped scraps, embossed papers, or other rejects from working on one card that I just know could be used on another card later. But then those half used papers pile up and I start to go a little bit crazy. So, I’ve been trying to periodically make a card mostly or completely out of scraps I have left over.
So, first I had these flowers from when I was trying to pick a pink color for a different card. Turns out they go great with a homemade glitter brad I created for a Crystal Effects class. (That is a Cameo Coral In Color brad that has been covered in Crystal Effects and dipped in Dazzling Diamonds glitter!)
I had left over Wisteria Wonder cardstock that had been embossed with the stripes going the wrong way for a card I was prepping for a class one time and so it worked perfectly here. And then I decided to break out my FAVORITE paper right now – Early Espresso Coordinations cardstock. If this paper doesn’t stick around after the Holiday Catalog I will be (1) surprised and (2) so very very sad!
I ran a scrap through the Woodgrain embossing folder and my Big Shot and then punched out a Modern Label punch to use as a mat behind my sentiment punched out with the Word Window punch.
I really was happy with how the card turned out AND the fact that I used up a number of scraps! It still doesn’t put too much of a dent into my scrap pile, but it’s a start!
