As I’m clearing off my desk and getting ready for the new year and the new Occasions Catalog, I am trying to use of scraps and bits and pieces from my desk. It really is a fun challenge to see what neat new designs you can come up with using up those bits left over from other projects. This this card using the Acorny Thank You left overs from a prior card plus some scraps from the Into the Woods designer paper.
Once again, I loved being able to use a paper for a different season then I had stuck in my mind. Its pretty and bright and I love pairing it with the Acorn punch.
Plus add in some Gold Metallic Thread and a Metallic doily and you really have some sunny shine to share with someone.
TIP – If you are trying to do the looping thread look behind an element – like this acorn – coat the back of the item with a bunch of Snail tape runner. Then start by pressing the end of the Gold Thread onto the back of the element, so that it is held by the tape runner. Then continue making loops, pressing into the tape on the back of the acorn each time you loop. Then, when you are done, help secure it in place by pressing a Stampin’ Dimensional over where most of the threads cross to give extra security, plus a way to pop-up your element off your card.
So, don’t let your fall and Christmas papers languish in the back of your paper shelf or drawer now that the seasons are past. Mix them up and use them for any season! I bet you can find some creative uses for them.
