Scrap Box Bits

I have boxes of bits of card, and folded cards from old kits, the embossed A.T.C. made me think about using some up, no two cards will ever be the same.

    Blue Congratulations

Onto a piece of white card using Versa mark, stamp the flower and congratulations, clear emboss this, with stormy sky distress ink and a stencil brush, working from side to side keeping the outer edge almost white, but over the flower and congratulations needs to be quite dark so it will stand out, go around the edge of the card with black ink, using pieces of blue and navy card that tone with the stormy sky ink, scrunch up the navy card open it out and rub over it with a sanding block, now attach them to a white card starting with the navy twist each piece so each colour can be seen under the embossed card.

       Green Happy Birthday

I found a white card with a piece of green card mounted onto it almost the same colour as pine needles distress ink, stamp the flower and happy birthday using versa mark and clear emboss it, colour as above with pine needles and go around the edge with black ink. A lighter piece of green card  was scrunched up and opened out, and rub over with pine needles ink, attach the light green and white card in place, fix a light green card candy to each corner.

         Lilac Happy Birthday

A 7”x5” lilac folded card was used as the base card, onto a piece of white card about 1.5cm smaller than the base card, using memento tuxedo black stamp a flower in each corner, with the two leaves and curled petals, facing into the centre of the card, lightly colour this with dusty concord distress ink, edge the card with black ink, cut a piece of white card to fit just over the curled petals stamped on the white card, on to this stamp the flower and happy birthday using versa mark and clear emboss it, working with stormy sky distress ink in the centre over the words and part of the flower, and dusty concord to the edge both colour need to be quite dark, edge the card in black ink, using a craft knife cut around the two curled petals and part way along the two leaves, you will now have slots to slip the corners of the embossed card in, make sure the embossed card fits before you attach it centrally to the base card.
