Using Some Scraps

 This little card was made using a few scraps.  It measures 3 and 1/2 by 4 and 1/4. 

I based the size on the blue scrap which is what I started the card with.  I saw the large polka dotted scrap and decided to emboss the blue piece to coordinate using a Cuttlebug folder called Polka Dots.  

I cut another piece of green that has little tiny polka dots using a scalloped oval Nestabilities die.  I used my paper piercer to punch little holes in each of the scallops.  Then I stamped "hey hottie" using Versamark ink and embossed it with some white embossing powder.  This allowed my sentiment to stand out and be clear and easy to read on a patterned paper.

To finish I attached all my layers to a Kraft colored base and did some faux stitching wiht my gel pen.

It felt great to use up some scraps that were laying around from recent projects.  To be honest I do throw away a lot of my smaller scraps.  I know I shouldn't, but sometimes I just get overwhelmed by the mountain they can become and usually only save scraps that are at least 4 by 4.  It was nice to use a couple pieces on this card that were smaller than that.

Thanks for visiting :)  Planning to shoot a  video tonight and I'm crossing my fingers I can actually get it done.
