I didn’t get a lot of crafting done this week, but I made two cards. The first one is a good demonstration of how to use those tiny scraps of patterned paper you have in your stash. Some of the flowers are design elements from small bits and pieces of patterned paper I had lying around. I also used miscellaneous stickers and brads to give it a more random/natural look. As part of my USE YOUR STASH month-long challenge (see sidebar), neither card is made using newly purchased materials.
Detail of flowers:
MATERIALS: white cardstock, Marrakech paper pad; assorted flower brads (“Spring Fling” line from Making Memories); epoxy stickers (owl, butterfly, leaves on flowers) from Paperchase, flower stickers (Jolee’s Boutique by EK Success); flowers cut out from scrap pp; alphas are “French Market Alphabet Stickers” (Rusty Pickle, ST71).
THANK YOU CARD:
MATERIALS: white cardstock; Marrakech paper pad; decorative tape (self-adhesive ribbon) from Martha Stewart, alpha stickers (Sarah Milne’s “Sumner Squares” for Scenic Route (SRS 494).
