Here's the inspiration:
And here's what I started with on my desk:
Do you recognize any of these stamps? A little "Whooos Your Valentine," "American Celebration," "Universal Backgrounds," and "Candlelight."
And here's the finished card:
The scraps are adhered only on the left side. A strip of Outdoor Denim cardstock and length of twine anchors the scraps. Stitching with DMC Ecru thread and the sentiment from "Thoughtful Tidings" helps balance the card.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
What a great idea! Love the idea of making your own scraps! This came together beautifully, a great balance!
Smashing! Thanks for showing us the larger pieces of paper first. This is a brilliant idea. We're so glad you decided to join us at Color My Heart this week. We look forward to lots more of your creativity!!
SUPER idea, Brenda! I can't wait to hit my scraps! This is a great reason to keep them, lol. Thanks so much for playing along with us at the color dare this week! :)
This is a great card! I love the color combo with the style oh the style I want to do one right now! LOVE IT!
Nice job on the challenge! I love that you made all your own paper. The banners look great on kraft paper too! Thanks for joining us in the Color Dare this week and for the inspiration you have provided us, Brenda! We hope you can join us again really soon.
love all the pennants down the side with your created papers!
Oh my, I LOVE that banner card. It is so cool!
I really hope you don't mind, but I loved this idea so much that I stole it for the album contest at convention. If I win, I promise I'll share the rewards with you! :) Great job with creating your own papers. Thanks for playing this week at Color My Heart!
