Melissa here with you today sharing a card that is utilizing all the bits and pieces of your kit and papers! I love the challenge of using every piece of product to the last itty bitty piece. If my tape runner can fit, it can be used!
For this card, I wanted to use some leftover strips that were remnants from a previous card. I could easily throw them away but, no. I shall use them! Plus, I want to make a card that shows off the beautiful colors and patterns of this beautiful collection from Maggie Holmes. The Gather collection is so gorgeous and I can’t stop creating with it!
So, I used a scallop border punch and created some strips to layer on my card. Once I got them where I wanted them, I did some stitching which is always a fun, and easy, way to add some texture.
How fun is that? I love the look of stitching I think it just enhances the overall base design of this card.
The rest of this card flowed pretty easily. I cut out one of the polaroid shapes from the patterned paper and used it to frame the sentiment. By mounting it on pop dots, it added some awesome dimension, I think. And how cute are those paper clips??? Easy and adorable embellishing!
Here is the final product. I’m so happy with how this card turned out!
As always, thanks for swinging by today and I hope this has given you more ideas on how to use every single piece of your kit while showing off the beauty of it as well!
