Card Tuesday - DSP Leftovers

If you are like me and you  just can't throw away those little pieces of leftover DSP, (especially when its a set that you just LOVE), then you have an ever growing pile of paper that never ends. This week I decided enough was enough. This is a great little card that I came up with to use up all those pieces! I used the little banner punch (from SAB, and will be available in the new catalouge starting July), but you can use any punch, although the smaller the shape the more "leftovers"you can use! (Thanks to Carrie for discussing this idea of the banner punch with me the other week!!). If you would like to see how I created the card, keep reading below!

Step by Step:

Step 1. Punch out a heap of banners from your leftovers. This is a great job to do whilst sitting in front of the tv catching up on some tv shows.

Step 2: You can choose to add the banners direct to the card base, or create a mat to adhere them to. Starting at the base of the card, use some glue or tape to adhere the bottom row of banners to the card. You can randomly add the pieces or make a pattern.

Step 3: Continue with the next row, ensuring that the banners are offset with the ones underneath. It's ok to hang some off the edge. Keep adding rows. Make sure to leave enough room at the top of you card to stamp a sentiment.

Step 4: Cover the top of your last row with washi, ribbon, twine or a strip of paper. (If you are using ribbon or twine, do step 5 first).

Step 5: Turn over your card and trim off the bits hanging over the edge.

Step 6: Make sure to "fluff"up the banner pieces to give some texture to the card.

Step 7: Stamp your sentiment, and add a little something to the top of the banners. Why not add a butterfly, flower, button, bling or a bow!

Step 8: If you create a mat for your banner, adhere this to your base. 

I hope you will give this card a try and make yourself feel good about using up all those little pieces! Make sure to share your creations on my facebook page (search for Scrap and Stamp with Ronnie)!
