Design It Monday ~ {Gettin’ Scrappy}!

Hi friends, Lisa here today with a scrappy card for {Design It Monday}! The inspiration for this card came from a 6×6 My Mind’s Eye paper pad with lots of little bits begging to be used along with a snippet from a die cut banner and a previously stamped flower.

I started by trimming the bits to give them all straight edges. Next came a panel of thin cardstock covered with adhesive tape. I simply added the decorative paper pieces like a puzzle trimming and fitting as needed. When this was complete, I ran it through an embossing folder to give it a quilted look, love it! After adding the square doily scrap to the bottom, it was adhered to my card front.

Doing some selective inking, I added the remember sentiment from the new This Moment Stamp Set to the snippet of my banner die cut. I tucked it under a flower from the Mom and Dad Stamp Set (retired) that was left over from a previous project. This focal element is popped up on a vellum doily die cut.

The bottom of the card holds another sentiment from the This Moment Stamp Set ~ today. I added the stitched looking border from the Positive thoughts Stamp Set to echo the feeling of the quilted panel.

This card was fun to make and I loved putting all of those pretty scrappy bits together, it sure felt good to use them up!
