WTSHTF Scrap-ling Cards
Marion from When the Scrap Hits the Fun recently shared some of the sweetest bugs and sentiments from her Cute as a Bug Collection with us lucky ladies on her design team and I had so much fun playing with them! Have you heard of scrap-lings? It is a cute card shape that I have been seeing more and more on Pinterest. The card base is 1 1/4" x 4 1/4"- so can be made with scraps and then you decorate with stamps and embellishments as desired. Because Marion's designs are digital, we can choose to make them as big or small as we wish. On the one above, I printed the butterfly on purple and pink dotted and paper pieced the purple body part. I colored a little with gel pens and attached with mounting tape to raise. Same idea on the ladybug. On both cards I started with a white piece that I embossed with my favorite Swiss Dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug) and printed the sentiment piece on yellow card stock and cut out.
My second scrap-ling was made the same way- aren't they cute? Please visit When the Scrap Hits the Fun for these darling digital stamps and many others.
I am entering these cards in the challenge at Digital Tuesday for shaped cards and the Anything Goes (with a non-square base) challenge at Paper Take Weekly.
