Using Paper Scraps to Make Card Backgrounds

Before we get started I would like to announce the winner of the August Cricut magazine.

Adorable card Linda. Love the fun and vibrant colors. Fab giveaway. :)

Congrats Angi! Please send me your address and we will get your package in the mail!

Thanks everyone for all the nice comments and a special thanks to Madonna for her generosity.

I made this card entirely out of small scraps of leftover papers. In today’s video I will be demonstrating how to make this cute card and diagonal background.



If you are interested in how I made the rosette, please click here or here to watch my YouTube video on how to make rosettes using duct tape.

Have a great day!
Linda

I love the card, Linda. Another idea I have tried is using strips of photos. They can be from some that didn't turn out or what you have cropped off. Layer them on in different directions to make up the face of the card before embellishing.
