We all have scraps we don't want to throw away, so why not use them? I hate to throw away scraps so I decided to create some cards with diagonally cut strips of pattern papers.
I've used the following papers:
Pink Glitter Cardstock
Red Glitter Paisley Cardstock
Cindy Lou Swirl Glitter Cardstock
Pink Glitter Swirl
Vanilla Swirl Glitter Cardstock
Simply cutting your scraps into triangular pieces you can create any number of cards. I inked each piece with brown ink before adhering them to a larger scrap of cardstock. This added a nice contrast to the papers I was using. Once I had the look I was going for, I adhered each piece, then simply cut away the excess before adhering the panel to Red Glitter Paisley Cardstock.
A simple sentiment was stamped on a scrap of Pink Glitter Swirl and several dew drops were added alongside. The sentiment was added to the bottom.
I changed the angle of this card and stamped a circular sentiment on a scrap of Pink Glitter Swirl and Red Glitter Paisley Cardstock. I placed the sentiment where the pieces joined. Then I placed assorted dew drops radiating from the sentiment.
So, how will you use your beloved scraps today?
Thanks for stopping by today.
