Another Day, Another Card!

     Frosty, frosty, good morning!  How can it keep getting colder?  Brrrr!  I am so glad that I am hibernating with my crafts through this weather.  This is no time to be working outside!  But inside, it's a whole different story.

     I found a piece of paper in my scrap basket, and I knew I wanted to make a card with it.  But every idea I came up with would cover up the best part of the paper.  Sooo.... I decided to just use the paper as the card design.  It doesn't get any easier than this one!
     I used my 1" square punch to break down the flower part of the design on the paper.  I used a pen to draw fake stitches around each square, and then raised them up on sticky foam.  It took two of my EK Success border punches to get the look that I wanted for the bottom of the brown card stock, but they worked together well.  Then I tied a creamy yellow ribbon below the flower squares, and layered the whole combination on a blue card base. 

     This card was very fast and simple once I decided what I was doing.  Why don't you try something similar with one of your favorite scraps from your stash!  I'd love to see what you come up with.

Bye for now,
