What do you do with all your scraps? I can be so lazy, I hate to put them away even though I have a designated place for them. I would prefer to design another card instead.
This card idea was inspired by a piece of gold foil paper that I cut some Vintage Leaves for another project. The gold splatted Bliss paper behind the Maple Leaf was a piece of paper that got in the way of other splatting. and I used it for a layer under the cut out leaves.
The colored paper behind the leaves was the under paper that protected my design area when I sponged a number of colors on gold embossed leaves for another project. I liked that paper so well, I used it and placed it in the smaller openings of the gold foil paper. I used the Happy Scenes Photopolymer Stamp Set and masked the area around the small leaves and stamped with the Happy Scenes stamp set.
I ran the foil sheet through the new Softly Falling Embossing Folder. I just love the texture it gives to any paper. I added the foil paper with dimensionals and adhered it to a Cajun Craze card base. I tied a bow with gold satin ribbon and used glue dots to attach some metallic gold thread.
Not bad for leftovers!
