Wallflower Scraps

Well here we are nearly at the end of another month! How quickly the time passes. 

Jennie here with you today with my second make of the month and sorry! but I had to use the doily again!

Now I did say at the beginning of the year that I was really going to try and use up some of my scraps this year. My beloved and much used Tim Holtz Wallflower Paper Stack is now looking like this:

But it is amazing that as you start looking through you can find enough to make a simple card (with a feel good factor too!).

The doily was cut again in cream cardstock. Now this is just as it popped out the die and you can see how cleanly it cuts - just one or two little bits to pop out.

I had found a bigger piece of the green for the base of my card, but I managed to punch these flowers out of really small scraps! They got a spritz of water and a scrunch and then were left to dry.

Then everything got layered on the card. I had cut the doily down a bit to fit the scrap cardstock and the oval was die cut again from a very small scrap. The flowers were layered on top of each other and clustered with a stamped butterfly and a few more of the punched leaves I seem to have on everything these days!

A stamped sentiment in the bottom corner and a few gems and I was finished.  Another card for the birthday box and it feels so good to have used a few scraps.

Thank you for joining me today and have a great week!
