Sunday's Bits & Pieces #4


Today i have another card using elements from my scraps and leftovers.The card is made mostly from a left over piece from my Christmas cards. I cut one of the panels too short so i couldn't use it, instead i used it to experiment with it. I adhered the tissue tape across the card, but didn;t really like it for my Christmas cards, so it went in my left over drawer.

When i was routing in my drawer this week i found it again and remembered that this months Paper Crafts Challenge was winter projects. Luckily I'm just in time as the deadline is 1/23. Most of the work was already done, i used a big snowflake stamp and inked it up in blue ink and spritz pearlized water. Then with a few small snowflakes i used white ink. Ink the edge with white and added the tissue tape and twine bow.

To spruce it up a bit i stamped winter wishes in white on a dark blue tab and adhered it to the card front. Next i used twine and made a couples x's by the tab and at the bottom left corner. Then i rounded the corners and adhered the panel with pop up dots to a kraft card.

Thanks for stopping by!!
