Over at Scrapbookers Anonymous they are now challenging their followers to make a card from the remnants of the layouts they make for their challenges each month. What a great challenge for someone like me who rarely makes cards. I always wish I had something on hand for a special occasion for that special someone.
My card was fairly easy – I had made my layout for them this month out of Kraft paper. The challenge this month was to stamp a background paper, and make 3 embellishments from stamps on contributor’s layouts. From the remnants of my submission, I stamped a background paper to resemble a letter ( like I did in my layout), made the same envelope that I used in my layout, then stamped a banner for a little message. I added a tiny butterfly for balance, distressed with a distress tool and some distress ink, and voila, glimmer misted the banner … a simple, yet elegant card made. Oooo I like doing this !!!!
