One of my goals right now is to use up my scraps – whether left over pieces when cutting paper or stamped and punched images that I decided not to use on a previous project. So, when I was working on thank you cards for customers, I grabbed some left over pieces of designer paper and I had fun layering!
This card actually uses designer paper from two different packs – Summer Smooches (for the banners and the accent piece on the sentiment) and Berry Blossom (for the polka dotted background). But don’t they work well together?
It also uses 2 retiring items – Thank You Kindly stamp set and the silver brads. Both of these items I can’t believe are going away because they are such staples. But I know I will be keeping the Thank You Kindly set because it gives me 4 different thanks sentiments, and I’m expecting awesome new things in the catalog next month!
Oh, so one last thing for today, I wanted to show you how to get those tips of the banners without having to guess with your scissors – and, if you are like me, get totally random results each time! You just need to grab your Pennant Punch!
The photo above shows how the corner of the pennant punch actually can make a really nice and consistant tip for your banners. What you want to do is slide your paper into the punch from the side so that it lines up with a corner on the short end of the pennant. You will have to slide your paper around a little to line it up evenly, but once you’ve done it it goes fast each time. Ta-da!!
So, I hope you got some new idea from this today. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
