'Hi' Card - My Creative Scrapbook - Prima Lyric




Here's my next card using my My Creative Scrapbook Limited Edition Kit this month.  Making a few cards and/or tags is a great way to polish off those leftovers from a kit (that will otherwise lie around for years taking up precious space in your crafting area). 


I used a white blank here, inked up the edges with brown, then joined a few pieces of paper as I literally didn't have a piece of patterned paper long enough for the card as I had worked my way through this entire kit...

I added some printed chipboard pieces (always a great buy for cards as they usually come as a 12"sheet & you get dozens of pieces) , tucked in a doily, added another chipboard piece, organza ribbon bow & Prima flower then pushed in a couple of stick-pins & called it done :)


Ribbons, lace & stick-pins are other great embellishments for cards as they're light & non-bulky.

Hope you are all enjoying a lovely weekend :)

Beautifully creative and I love all the different textures. You are so right. I mainly make my cards from scrap papers in my scraps file.
