If you are like me, you have a pile of paper scraps that are never quite large enough to use on a project, but you save them just in case you need them. Since I have made it a goal to start using up my supplies, I took out all off my Prickly Pear paper scraps and created some Thank You cards using our Storybook Alphabet stamp of the month. These layered and crisscrossed cards are perfect for using up paper scraps and zip-strips.
Paper Needed: 11″ x 8½” Sapphire Cardstock, ¾” B&T Paper Strips (Prickly Pear), 1¼ x 5½” B&T Paper (Prickly Pear), 1″ x 5½” White Daisy Cardstock
Tips for Creating this Card:
• Choose four patterns for each card, then arrange the pattern how you would like it to appear on the card. I chose either warm or cool color palettes.
• Start from the bottom left corner and work your way up and across to create the desired pattern I used our Bonding Memories Glue to prevent the smaller pieces from falling off, then trimmed all the ends once I had assembled the pattern.
• The sentiment was stamped with Black Ink, then shaded with Watercolor Pencils.
Your imagination is your only limit. Create a variety of patterns and designs using this technique on your cards and scrapbook pages. I encourage you to use up some of your supplies this week, and post some of your creations on my Facebook page. I can’t wait to see what you create.
The Storybook Alphabet stamp set is available until July 31st.
