Let's Celebrate You

A while back, I posted a card featuring the new in colors using a technique from Bruno Bertucci. As I was cleaning up my stamping area, I found a few DSP scraps that I was going to toss, but thought, I can make another scrap card!

This time I remembered to take a few photos to show you the process.

I cut a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" card base, one 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and one 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" piece of card stock and a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of whisper white for the inside.

Step 1:

I had 6 x 6 scraps and cut them at a slant - no measuring, just cut away!

Step 2:

Using liquid glue, add the scraps to the 5.5" x 4.25" piece of cardstock

Step 3:

This is what it looks like from the back. At this point, trim this panel. For this card, I trimmed the panel to 5 1/8" x 3 7/8". The in color card I trimmed the feature panel to 5 1/4" x 4".

Step 3:

I mounted the feature panel to the 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" piece of card stock, added some dimensionals and adhered it to the card base.

Final touch:

On a 1" strip of card stock, I used the triple banner punch to flag the end. I embossed the sentiment from Celebrate Sunflowers and added a few retired embellishments.

Embossing tip:

How did I emboss in Night of Navy? You can emboss in any color! Apply Versamark ink to your stamp, then apply the ink color of your choice, use an embossing buddy on your card stock, stamp onto your card stock, add embossing powder and heat. 

Try this technique. A great way to use scraps and lots of fun too!
