Welcome to a new challenge for Serendipity Stamps! The Serendipity Challenge this week is Paper Scraps…make a project and use up some of those paper scraps you have!
For my scrap buster card, I used a whole bunch of little card stock strips..some plain, some embossed. I always have these little strips left when I trim images and I’m pretty well known for saving everything, lol. I’ve made these type of strip backgrounds before, so I dug out some Christmas colors of these strips and stuck them onto a piece of sticker paper. Originally it was 4 x 5.25, but it looked a bit too busy so I cut it down to about 2 x 5 and attached it to left side of my 4.25 x 5.50 card.
After stamping the tree image on white, I also stamped it a few times on some designer paper scraps and paper pieced them onto the base image. I added just a little color w/ Copics and die cut it. One of the Merrys was stamped on a scrap of white and I used a smaller Labels 17 to cut the right side of it.
