Hello everyone I made this card using papers and toppers from the Pollyanna Pickering British Wildlife DVD ROM. It was fairly easy to make just printing off some papers and toppers, cutting them out and sticking them onto the card. I always go around the edge of the toppers and papers with a dark marker to stop the white of the edge of the paper and this gives it a more professional look. I also used some dimensional foam tape to stick on the toppers as you can see below.
I would like to enter this card into the Make it Male challenge at CD Sunday, because these wildlife image make great masculine cards.
After making this card I was left with lots of scraps of papers. So I made two more card using these.
With the first card I made my own topper by cutting an image on the backing paper out with a circle die. I cut a scrap of backing paper into a rectangle and stuck this flat onto the card. I then used foam pads to stick my topper onto a circle mat that was on a topper sheet and onto a scalloped circle I had die cut from white card. I also die cut a corner embellishment from the patterned paper and used one of the flower embellishments that were on the topper sheet to make an embellishment in the corner this was finished with a pearl.
This third card is more of a little note card and doesn’t feature any of Pollyanna’s images. I just uses a strip of background paper that the swirl embellishment for the first card had been cut out of. I then cut this swirl again from another paper and inlaid into the hole. I then added another flower and pearl and stamped a sentiment with brown ink to finish it off.
I hope this help you with how to use up the scraps you don’t use on your cards.
Please leave me a comment especially if you try any of my techniques to use up your scraps.
