Scraps R Us

Using those 1" strips that seem to multiply and tend to pile up.

 Choose three colors. I chose Cranberry, Sweet Leaf, and Olive. Gather all your 1" scraps of BTP, colored cardstock and white daisy or colonial white cardstock. Choose two BTP of different colors. Choose a colored cardstock. Stamp the three colors on your white daisy or colonial white cardstock. You can random stamp or stamp a design using a border stamp. Layer your strips, create a focal point and embellish.
Make a side border using cardstock. Emboss your colored cardstock and sand to expose the white core. Stamp your white daisy or colonial white using a border stamp and your three colors. Add your focal point and a sentiment and embellish as desired.

Cardstock: Colonial White, Cranberry, Olive
