The other day I made a card with literally the scraps on my desk (and in my 'one day' box, which is just a place to put the scraps and make my desk look vaguely tidy.)
I started with the stamped/chalked background - I had made a few of these last year, and this was the final one. I had hesitated to use it as I wanted to do something 'different' this time, as I had made two similar cards. Here is an original.
I then found this scrap of blue, the negative of a die cut, which fitted neatly over the piece of chalked paper.
The sentiment was embossed with a silver glitter powder, despite the fact it looks lumpy in the photograph, it does sparkle beautifully. I sponged some interference ink around the sentiment after cutting the die shape. I attached it using some purple gem brads.
Here you can see how the blue paper reflects the light and brings the card to life. The finishing details were some paper flowers, secured with a matching brad, attached over some leaf ribbon. The purple ribbon is a self adhesive satin ribbon, with the glitter ric rac glued over it.
I even added some of the glitter ric rac to the inside.
