Topic: Scrap Recovery
In the kits I made up some time ago I had two that had patriotic cardstock stickers; the last leftovers from a large sheet. One of them had a blue card base and one a red card base - both in muted tones. I had also dropped in these kits lots of red, glue and neutral scraps.
So I treated both in a similar manner by making scrappy flags. For the first I used a single block of blue checked paper for the upper left corner. I used a heart punch on it so the card base shows through. Then I l alternated printed paper strips in reds and neutrals. Then i placed the cardstock sticker under the blue field.
For the second I used slightly brighter colors. I started with a block of three blue patterned papers. Then I used cream and yellow strips on the field while letting the red background show between them. I placed two diecut swirls on top and then placed the cardstock sticker in the center.
I like how these came out - scrappy but still recognizable.
