Just Scraps has a challenge this week where you need to use scraps of yellow. Hopefully I have made in time for the deadline, as Just Scraps has a new challenge each Sunday and I am leaving my entry a little late. For this Challenge I decided to use some of my scrap pieces of So Saffron cardstock and Designer Series Paper. I started with a base card made from Whisper White cardstock. I then adhered a strip of Designer Series Paper (I can’t remember the name), that is wide as the So Saffron cardstock, but only 1/3 of the height. I followed this by sticking a strip of 5/8″ So Saffron Grosgrain ribbon, which I had adhered a loop of So Saffron Grosgrain and a Rhinestone Brad to make a bow, to the centre of the Designer Series Paper. I adhered the So Saffron Cardstock, with the ribbon tucked behind, to the Whisper White base card. I then stamped a few scrap pieces of Whisper White cardstock using the stamps from the Vintage Vogue stamp set. I trimmed two of the flowers that I had stamped and then used the cropadile to punch a hole through the centre of the two flowers and through the stamped piece of Whisper White cardstock. I joined the flowers to the stamped Whisper White cardstock with a mustard coloured brad. I then adhered this to another piece of scrap Designer Series Paper that was slightly larger than the scrap piece of Whisper White. Using a slightly large piece of Whisper White cardstock, I embossed the cardstock with the Swiss Dot Embossing folder and adhered this behind the Designer Series Paper that was slightly smaller. Before adhering this to the base card, I stamped the Birthday sentiment from the Happy Moments stamp set and then I punch it out using the Curly Label punch (but only 1/2 of the label). I then punched another from a scrap piece Chocolate Chip cardstock, which I adhered being the white label and then trimmed. I adhered the sandwiched labels behind the embossed Whisper White cardstock and then adhered the embossed cardstock to the base card. Hopefully my scraps are not considered too large.
