Flower girl

Another card made with a Digistamps4joy stamp. The challenge was to make a card based on a sketch, and here is my take on the sketch. The cream, embossed paper, was from my scrap stash. The circles were cut with nestabilities - love these things!

How many of you do what I do? All my bits and pieces of paper are kept in see through acetate sleeves, arranged per colour. So if I'm looking for a small, blue scrap, I can just pull out the sleeve, scratch through the pieces, and use it on the card. I must credit this idea to my dearest sister, but it works for me! I loathe throwing away any bit of paper - if it's big enough to punch a shape out of, it stays!

  1. Yip, I keep all those little offcuts. My offcuts are all kept in a concertina folder - colour coded, of course. One has plain colours, the other has patterned colours.

  2. Me too! Keep everything in plastic folders (well actually the 12 x 12 ones you buy paper in). All colour coordinated in a large tupperware container under my craft table. Went on a stash diet last year and made all my cards from my scrap box! Saved me a lot of money.
    Love your card. The textured background is lovely.
    Good luck with the DT call!
