Colorful Card Made with Scraps
Updated: Apr 6, 2021
Hey! I haven't posted in a while, but I'm back! This is a quick and easy card created using scrap pieces of paper. I'm sure you can relate to having a multitude of paper lying around, but not wanting to throw it away. This is a fun way of using the "leftovers." I hope you enjoy the video.
The products I used to create this card are listed below, in text, linked to the sites where you can purchase the product, if you choose. FYI. A few of the products are no longer available.
All of the steps, to creating the card, are not shown in the above video. But I've mapped them out below.
The finished size of this card is 5.5" X 4.25".
Using scrap paper in various colors, I cut strips 1/2 inches in width and 1/4 inches in width from Black Cardstock (Recollections).
I applied Double-Sided Tape (Couture Creations) to a 5.5" X 4.25" piece of Solid Bright White Cardstock (Paper and More). With a Brayer Roller (Speedball), I rolled over the white cardstock (with the adhesive on the bottom) to make sure the adhesive was securely adhered to the cardstock. I did this to assure that I would have complete and secure coverage for the design.
Lastly, I stamped the Make Them Possible Sentiment (Rubbernecker) on Bright White Linen Cardstock (Paper and More) with Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink (Tsukineko) and cut it out using the Nested Rounded Corner Square Small Stitch Die Cut Set (discontinued).
I peeled the backing off the white cardstock to uncover the adhesive. With the adhesive side facing upward, I placed the strips of cardstock on the "sticky" side of the paper in a diagonal pattern. After putting all of the strips of paper down; I cut off the excess paper from around the edges, using EK Success Scissors (EK Success), and ran it through the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine (Sizzix), using the Sizzix Bigz Top Note (discontinued) to create the shape.
After all that, I was finally ready to put it all together. I adhered the colorful background to the front of the 5.5 X 4.25" (folded) Bright White Linen Cardstock base (Paper and More) using Tombow Mono Dots (Tombow) and finished the card off by placing the Make Them Possible Sentiment (Rubbernecker) in the center of the colorful background using Double-Sided Foam tape (Scotch).
