Scrap Wrangler does Christmas!

I didn’t think this was worth a video, but….I did get to use up some small scraps doing these! I picked some matching paper – a 6×6 pad of Little Yellow Bicycle – Once Upon a Christmas. It’s two sided paper, and what I found was using all the darker sides works best; Then when you put an image or sentiment on a light color, it has plenty to contrast with. You could probably do the same kind of thing with all lights and layer with a light color – ie all tans/creams and put a sentiment or image on it that would pop. So be careful, just because I say circle scraps work, if you get more than 3 coordinated colors, you could make a serious mess!

I cut the card base pieces out, and had all those strips on the side. What to do, what to do. CIRCLES! Layered they look really cool….I tried a few layouts. Note that I got “thin” outlines from my dies by combining Spellbinders and Sizzix dies to match them more closely; Using all SB made the black way too thick.

This next one uses the snowman from the Winter Wishes OWH/Hero Arts set:

And I think I really like this layout best – with just a sentiment:

Alrighty….have at it with circles, gals!

  8. You always amaze me with the way you use and match patterned paper…it is such a struggle for me (even when it comes in a set…seriously!). I always learn something from your posts. I have the stamp you used in your first card, and now you’ve given me a great idea for a way to use it. Thank you!! I love all 3 of today’s cards, but I’m always partial to a snowman card!

  9. These are SO wonderful. Thanks again for another great idea.
