As I've said before, I love it when a plan you didn't have comes together. I can't be the only one who picks up things as I see them, not specifically having a plan in place about what I'm going to do with them, right? RIGHT? I did that with a package of handmade paper scraps at Blick Art Materials a while back and then on my last trip to Dollar Tree, I found two sets of epoxy stickers that coordinated perfectly. The timing was perfect since I needed to make a couple of cards.
- Handmade Paper Scraps (Blick Art ...can't remember the price but around $5 I think)
- Epoxy Stickers (Dollar Tree)
- White 110lb cardstock (Recollections, Michaels)
- Black and White Scrapbook Paper (Michaels)
- Black Cardstock Scraps
- Foam Tape
- Adhesive Tape Runner
I couldn't have coordinated these if I'd tried!
I cut the white cardstock to 7x10 for 5x7 cards. Then I selected the handmade papers I wanted to use along with a sheet of black and white scrapbook paper from my stash, cut in panels as shown and adhered to the card.
I selected a trio of stickers from the gold and silver sheets and mounted on squares of black cardstock scraps. Then mounted these using foam tape down the center of the cards as shown.
For the silver stickers, I chose a handmade paper with glittered silver polka-dots.
This is a great cardmaking project if you don't have a cutting machine and/or if you're a beginning cardmaker!
