I use a lot of pre-scored card blanks, I guess its just a comfort thing, and they are quick and easy to grab, and i don’t have to worry about making my own envelopes, but i’ve been experimenting recently with cutting up 12×12 scrapbook paper/card instead. I have discovered that its so much fun to cut the 12×12 square into 12×4 strips and then fold in half, and I love the way this makes a tall card that has a fold along the top. Its quirky, and I love it!
As a complete step out of the comfort zone, I cut up a piece of black cardstock to challenge myself into using this as the basic of the card.
Here’s one of the results. I also managed to use a few scraps from the scrap tub, which is always a great thing, and I managed to play with another one of my newest cuttlebug folders. The blue dotty paper is glittered so it didnt photograph well, but it looks fantastic in real life – very shiny!
Stamp is from the hero arts thank you messages clear stamps which I picked up on sale. I love ’em.
Why don’t you challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone today- i bet you’ll be pleasantly surprised…
