Cards from Scraps
The first challenge of 2010 that my crafting buddies and I set ourselves was inspired by a project featured in the January edition of Craft Stamper magazine, it was literally making cards using the scraps of card and paper that we crafters always accrue .... well we can't throw anything away, it may come in handy .... and now it has! There is one card made using inch squares of scraps, then there is the tag card using various odd strips, then I had the idea of using used postage stamps and the idea then overlapped into last week's challenge (which was collage, more of that later). The background of the collage card was made by layering various pieces of cuttlebug embossed card and acetate and the leafy looking scroll thingy (that's a technical term!) is actually an Elusive Images heart stamp that at some point I had stamped, heat embossed and layered onto gold card which I cut in half .... good eh? Doesn't look at all like a heart now does it?
