Hi Crafty Friends,
It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Being a brand new month it is time to introduce a new challenge hostess which is Maryann Einam.
For our challenge this week, Maryann is giving us a chance to use some of our leftover papers, make a card using paper or card strips/scraps.
If it is one thing I have plenty of it is scrap pieces of cardstock ... tons of it! So this was a great challenge to play around and get rid of a few of those pieces at least.
There are a lot of options when it comes to using scraps, but I was inspired by a video from Jennifer McGuire which you can find here.
To create my background on my card, I cut pieces of card into 1/2" strips (the pink pieces) and 1/4" strips (the grey pieces). These were then adhered to a large sheet of paper that had Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the front. I then trimmed this down so I could use some of the front of the card and some to the sides on the inside of the card.
I used the Hello Edge'able from Crafter's Companion for the sentiment along the bottom of the card and then added flowers using Altenew's Dotted Blooms.
For the inside of the card, I used Karen Burniston's Snowman Twist Circle Pop-up die set adding sentiments from Catherine Pooler's Awesome and Wonderful Clear Stamp set.
I also added two more of the floral images to each side of my card.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
