What do you Do with Leftovers?

No, I am not talking about food! I am talking about those bits and pieces you have left over from your last card project. Today’s card features LEFTOVERS! It came together so quickly that I amazed myself. Usually, it takes me hours to make a card because I get in my own head! Let me tell you how I made this relatively simple card!

This all started with the white leftover panel I got from using the Honey Bee Stamps, Rainbow Accents Cuts. I was about to throw it away when I thought to myself, “self-that would look great with one of those backgrounds you have stashed away”. So I pulled out my bin of backgrounds and found one that I created by stamping off my Ranger Ink domed blending tools.

So that background got glued behind the rainbow die-cut. Then I grabbed some of my SIzzix Surfacez Silver Opulent card stock (if you don’t have this you need it!). From this, I cut some of the accent pieces from the Honey Bee cuts. Then I thought the main card panel needed a bit more texture so I used the Crafty Meraki Dance With Me Para-Die and got the texture I needed!

The silver accents were glued down. Then I used one of the clouds from the Honey Bee Cuts Rainbow Builder. One cloud was cut from white card stock and the other from vellum. I flipped the vellum one horizontally and glued it to the back of the white one. I liked the look. For the sentiment, I used one of my favorite sentiment/stamp sets from Kat Scrappiness called Everyday Brush Strokes and stamped the sentiment onto the white cloud, and heat embossed it with clear powder.

The main panel measured 3.75″ x 5″. The purple card border is 1/8″ larger on all sides and the card base is a top folding A2 base. The sentiment cloud was adhered with foam tape and the main panel and border were added to the base with foam tape as well. I told you it was easy! I hope you enjoy it. Now I have the rest of the day to make another card! See you SOON!
