Card #7 – “Just A Note” card
I started by assembling all my supplies.
I’m also accumulating a nice big stack of scrap cardstock and am trying to work the pieces of paper into my cards. Today’s card is an attempt to use my scraps. I really don’t like to throw away scraps because so much can be done with them. I’m thinking about doing a series later in the year where I make cards using only my scraps (except for the base). Like I said, I’m thinking about it.
I used white cardstock (5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″) for my base and a selection of patterned cardstock (3/4″ X 4 1/4″) for the design.
I started by die cutting the butterflies from yellow patterned cardstock. I used my Wink of Stella glitter pen to glitterize (not sure if that’s a word) the butterflies. I set those aside to dry while I worked on the design of the card.
I cut the patterned paper strips for the card design. I chose 5 different patterns that were from a similar color family. I cut them into 3/4″ X 4 1/4″ strips and then inked the edges with my Distress Ink (tumbled glass) of each individual piece. I then started at the top of the white cardstock base, on an angle, gluing down each piece. After they were attached I took my scissors and cut off the bits that were hanging over the edge of the card.
Here is the finished card.
I’m in a “sending cards just because” mood at the moment. It’s always such a good feeling to be able to brighten someone’s day.
