Playing with Texture and Paper Scraps
Today's cards are all about texture! I have lots and lots of half-inch strips of white cardstock. When I trim Whisper White cardstock for the inside of my cards it results in half-inch leftover. I put these in a bin and use them for sentiment strips. But there's no hope of ever using them all up. So today, I decided to come up with card making ideas that use half-inch strips of white paper scraps. The resulting card designs are white on white with lots and lots of texture!
Be sure to go all the way through my post and look for the list of participants at the end. Then hop over to their blogs as well to see their gorgeous designs! It's such an honor to be hopping with this amazing group of designers. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
For my final card, I took longer strips, which I had also embossed, and created a basket weave. I adhered this to a piece of 5 1/4" x 4" Whisper White cardstock. Then, I trimmed the edges of the strips of cardstock to match the edge of the piece of 5 1/4" x 4" cardstock. I also glued the ends of the flaps on the front of the card so that everything would stay neatly woven together. Then, I glued this to a standard Whisper White card base (8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4").
For the greeting, I used the Joy dies and adhered the cut pieces to another rectangle cut using the Stitched Rectangles dies. I added a few pearls for a little shine.
