Scrap to it!

Two days of this and I may have formed a habit?  Oh well, it's a productive one!

This card uses up some embossed cardstock that I'd previously made with the Stripes embossing folder.  Some of the design elements were necessary to cover flaws - there's a mark on the white cs under the butterfly and the embossed whitecs was a little crushed so I covered it with the butterfly negative.  Love that! 

The butterfly negative - or stencil, was created using scrap cs - yes! - and I embossed the cut out for added interested.  Using daubers, I added colour so the white cardstock, then turned the stencil over (so you don't see the messy inky edges) and attached it with dimensionals.  The flower brad makes a cute centrepiece.   

Supplies Used:
Stamp Set:  Curvy Verses
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie
Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie
Petals a Plenty & Stripes EBF & Beautiful Butterflies Die with Big Shot
Scallop Trim Border Punch
1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Daffodil Delight

Have a lovely weekend!

  1. I think your onto something here. All these cards you have made using scrap bits are amazing. Maybe we all need to do this for a change. The amount of pre-cut butterflys i have floating about really do need a home. I love the whole design of this card, the colours and layout.


I love reading your comments. Thank you for stopping by.
