Hi! Welcome to June! Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past few weeks – but hopefully things have settled down enough that I can get back to regular posting.
This month I am featuring Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog – especially since you can purchase select ones at 15% off! How awesome is that?
We all have scraps and today’s card will help you deal with those with this quick and easy card.
I used 1″ strips of the Inked Botanicals Designer Series Paper (on sale for 15% off this month) by 5 1/4″. I started with 6 pieces, then due to how much I ripped or overlapped when I adhered to the base, I needed to add one more strip. So, I’d say have 6-7 strips of DSP on hand to start.
As you can see, I ripped down the right hand side of each strip – before adhering to the Boho Blue card base. There are 6 different DSP strips – the left most and right most papers are the same pattern. You can choose to just pick 2 patterns or as many different patterns as you like.
The sentiment is from Wonderful Thoughts which has coordinating dies that cut around the word (not sure for this card) stamped in Boho Blue ink on Very Vanilla card stock. The Double Oval punch is used for the sentiment and the Boho Blue layer behind it. To finish the card, a piece of Boho Blue ribbon is placed behind the sentiment.
With all the fun papers we have, using up the scraps in this manner will help reduce your scrap pile, allow for quick, fun and pretty cards. I hope you will give it a try!
Thanks for stopping by!
