Michelle Yuen’s on the blog today and her card will certainly brighten your Monday blues! If you feel bad for throwing out the scraps after your complete your paper projects, don’t worry – Michelle has got you covered. She loves saving every last bit.
About her card, Michelle says:
I came up with this super easy and quick card design to put some of those scraps to use. All you have to do is cut up a bunch of scraps into varying widths. I tried to stick to a few colors to keep it cohesive, but you can also go crazy and have a rainbow effect if you want! Once I had a good amount of strips, I just taped them all up against each other at a diagonal on a card front. I did this for just a section of the front, but you can also make a full background if you decide to.
Once you have that done, it is so easy to finish up the card. I wanted a larger focal stamp that would still stand out on the busy striped background, and the new Sweet Shoppe stamp was perfect for that. To tie in the background and to add some words, I stamped a line of sentiments from along the same diagonal as the stripes.
Isn’t this so easy and cute! Michelle wants to know what are you waiting for, go put those scraps to use!
