The other night I was prepping card stock for my Stampin' Up! classes that I am teaching this weekend. I was amazed at the small pieces of card stock that I had left over and it seemed such a shame just to toss them out. I started playing with the scraps by placing them behind a punched out image. I used scotch tape to adhere them to the back side. When completed I took a larger piece ofcard stock and covered all the loose ends. Then used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes and insert brads. Finished design was placed on a card base using dimensionals.
Here are my samples of what I made. Please let me know what you think. There is truly no pattern, you just start playing and placing with scraps of card stock.
The sky is the limit on what you could crate doing this. Filled in designs could be large or small. Just remember it will add some bulk to your card, so if planning to mail the card don't get it too thick. This technique truly will give you one of a kind original cards.
The corner frames on the card were created by using: (cutting 4 of each colors and layering)
Photo Corners Extra Large Paper Punch, item #119878
Punched out design for the layering technique was created using:
Decorative Label Extra Large Paper Punch, item #120907 (Holiday Mini Catalog)
All products used were from Stampin' Up!.
