reinvention: giving new life to leftovers
Several weeks ago, Lindsay of The Frugal Crafter (www.thefrugalcrafter.wordpress.com/) had a great idea about designing cards using leftover materials. After looking at my huge stash of partially used card stock, paper, embellishments, ribbon, die cuts, etc., I decided to experiment and see what happened. Here are a few of the results. I even used the tiny scraps left over after I punched out medallions from scrap paper on one of the cards – it reminded me of confetti.
By the way, if you want a very cool embossed background for a card, try using the Cuttlebug Herringbone folder. I used that folder for the first card displayed in this post. The resulting texture is a wonderful effect, especially if you use shiny card stock like I did.
This was a great activity – thanks for the challenge. Please leave me a comment and tell me what you think of the cards.
