Recycled Scraps Card

I love using my die cutter to cut paper flowers, but it kills me to throw away the beautiful printed paper that is left after I've punched the flowers out.  I recently had to cut a bunch of flowers for a project and as I was gathering up the leftover paper, I decided it would make a really interesting background for a card or project.

For this card I used die cut leftover and background paper from the Amberley Grace Pattern Carstock collection and Hemingway Patterned Cardstock collection.  The flower stamp is from one of Red Rubber Designs' Featured Stamps - "Medallions".  The sentiment is from another featured stamp - "Vintage Greetings".

  1. Waste not. I love it. Did you shade the edges of the die cut paper or is that just the shadow?
    Very clever.

  2. Love your idea of using the scrap leftovers from die cutting. This really looks good!

  3. Very pretty, Kc. You do beautiful work.

  4. Very pretty! I love that die. Great idea...i am going to have to give it a try.
