Donna here for Pick of the Week for The House That Stamps Built
Today I am going to show a fun way to use some of those patterned paper scraps that we all have around and don't want to throw away.
Lets get started by gathering our supplies. You will needs an A-2 card base, a white 4" by 5 1/4" piece of white card stock, die cut of your choice, about the size of the heart below that I used, an embossing folder, various widths of scraps of coordinating scraps of cardstock-about 5-8 per card, tape or glue of your choice, scissors, and stamps of your choice, I used Repeat Impressions: 1144-D, Happy Anniversary, 419-J, Another year . . . 4405-K, Dragonfly Deco :
Die cut heart or shape of your choice towards the top of your 4 x 5 1/4" cardstock and then emboss, it is important to die cut first or you will flatten out your embossing when you die cut:
Place adhesive (or glue) all around die cut close to edge. Attach strips of cardstock in the order you want and at an angle, trim edges as you go:
Place adhesive around the edges of cardstock and across the strips of paper:
Attach to A-2 card front being sure to press firmly on edges and across the patterned paper to attach. Embellish as desired:
