Late last evening I participated in another scramble at the Hero Arts Flickr group. Greta was our hostess, and she really made it a scramble.
We were to use something
non-traditional on or in the making of our card. I used a paper
shredder. I stamped the Life of the Party Dots background stamp inked
with Field Greens, Cup O Joe, Butterbar, and Orange Soda on to a piece
of white cardstock. After it dried a bit, I sent it through the
shredder. Now I have often had the urge to send a card project through the shredder, but never have I had the urge to pick pieces of shredded card back out. So, I decided that was my non-traditional portion of the scramble. My method of creating my horizontal panel.
The same background stamp was clear embossed on orange cardstock. I also stamped leaves-from the 3 Dotted Flowers stamp, and heat embossed them in gold HA embossing powder as well as the sentiment which is from the set Good Friends. All embossed items were fussy cut.
I put the card together by lining up my shreds,
and gluing them down. Next the leaves were glued down, and the orange panel was wrapped in gold thread. The sentiment was then wrapped around the card and secured in the back. Then the completed front panel was added to a brown card base with foam tape. This is a 4 Bar sized card.
Thanks for stopping by!
