birthday card with leftovers

So way back when, I was having fun with smooshed Distress Ink backgrounds. And Simply Graphic dies. Here's the post.

Well the "frame" leftover from the die cut rectangles on those cards was too pretty to throw away. And believe it or not, I actually created a card around it!


Needed an image that would stretch nicely the height of the card. STAMPlorations Kathryn's Big Wishes worked nicely.

I was going to stamp black images on a white card but then decided to reverse that. White heat embossed onto black CS. Popped up the frame with foam adhesive and voila!

Happy weekend!

What a fun card! Adore the colorful frame with the black and white! You are so good in using all your scraps. I don't throw them out but usually don't use them right away, so the scraps accumulate...

Very creative, Maria! I love the bright frame - it's perfectly spotlighted by the black/white card!

What a perfect way to use up a scrap. This is why I visit blogs - to get inspiration like this. It's fabulous. That little bit of colour against the black and white. Perfect. Xx
