Revisiting scrap box

Embossed background

Just recently I was unsuccessfully trying to put the lid onto my scrap box, the box was so stuffed full of card that the lid was never realistically going to go on. In frustration I decided to have sort out and came across several pieces of card that had either been embossed – testing out a new embossing folder – or had been brushed over with inks. The card was of a decent size so I put those pieces to one side while the rest of the box was sorted and its contents reduced!

Having nothing better to do at that time I was inspired to make those pieces of card into card fronts and came up with several cards that will come in handy for those birthdays that suddenly come around although they are clearly marked on the calendar!

In creating these cards I also had the chance to use up some coloured card stock that I seem to have loads of but never use. The background colours of the front pieces lent themselves to being mounted on coloured card bases. For the inside of the card I added a thick white printer paper and then used two newish stamps for a greeting.

In the flurry of inspired card making I didn’t check the finished card sizes and now realize I don’t have any envelopes to fit! Envelope making is now on the to-do list.

Thank you for looking x
