Reminder Post The Flower Challenge #66 Use Scraps


It's time for the reminder post using scraps. I was inspired by Vivien's card in the last post and decided to go with the same idea but I used triangles for my shapes.

For the first two cards I used pieces of scrap  from some papers I made using tissue paper, glue and embossing powder in gold. The scraps I had, made it possible with some manipulating, two floral die cuts for a couple of cards.

Card 1
In this card I have used the whole diecuts, frame and inserts as I love the look.
These dies are from Pinkfresh Studio . I have added them to a card base that is Ivory shimmer cardstock and I have added a stencilled background. Finished off with the 'Happy Birthday' die cut

Card 2

For this one I cut the outline from gold mirror cardstock and added the insets from scraps I was able to cut from the last of this purple paper. Added to the same cardbase as the last card and finished off with the Big Hugs die cut.

Card 3

The next card I have used the triangle die cuts to cut some pieces from paper scraps done the same way except this time with orange colours.

I added the triangles to a cardbase then to finish it off i used a flower die cut (sorry cant remember brand). This I layered up a couple of times in white then gold mirror cardstock.

I really need to do more of these, I love the look and truly it was so simple using up scraps and diecuts that I have in abundance.

Now its time to go check out  what the rest of the Design Team has been up to, get some inspiration and get busy making a card or two. Use those scraps.

Making your own paper gives a unique touch to your cards, Aileen. The blue ones are lovely with the gold accents and I love the arrangement of the triangles.

Three beautiful cards Aileen! I especially like the one with the triangle background. The colours on your tissue background are stunning and they showcase the gold sprig beautifully. So happy to hear your exciting news and hope the day was full of joy with not a raindrop to be seen!! Vicky x

Thank you so much Vicky, I'm so glad I used these papers. I had had them for so long.
