Like other crafters out there, I’m sure, I have a huge pile of scraps that are more than just left over pieces of cardstock when I cut out a shape from a sheet. But I have stamped images I decided not to use for one reason or another, punched images that I played with and set aside, and even card bases that I cut knowing they would be used sometime. Well, I finally decided to do something about these random one-off pieces and started putting together some cards using them – including this card.
This is a cute set called On a Pedestal that my mom got at one point that I just had to try out. It is a “2 step stamping” set where you get a stamp of the pedestal and then different items you can layer on top, like a yummy cake with a cherry on top! I grabbed this image and matted it and then started digging in my scraps for more pieces to go with it. I had the Pixie Pink Top Note bigshot die cutout and the Happy Birthday stamped image (using the Create a Cupcake stamp set), so I layered them onto the River Rock card base. When I was done, it still looked a little plain so I decided to try some faux stitching and grabbed my Signo white gel pen and added a little touch to the edge.
What do you think of how it turned out? :)
