Using up Scraps – Freeform

I had a big pile of scraps left from my Christmas cards and started creating some cards from the pieces. At first I did a few and then decided I needed some flowers for embellishing. So I cut 20 flowers in blue belle, sapphire and whites daisy. I used my cricut to fussy cut the flower from the old Chelsea Gardens stamp. (C1709) Then to finalize the flowers I stamped them with embossing ink and heat embossed them with gold powder.

So now that I had a bowl of flowers I could dive into creating some cards.

The branches and gold leaves are all from the leftovers too. If you like watching process videos, here’s mine from these cards.

Happy Crafting!

Club Card – December

As I was thinking of card designs for this months project, I knew time was not on my side and it needed to be something quick with few pieces for me to prep. 20 minutes later on Pinterest and I found this “braided” technique.

The template for creating the braided edge was definitely dated, faded, and had been copied more than once. I put together my own template and you can get it here.

I added paper to the inside of the card and really like the results. Hope you have fun creating more braided cards!
