Dissecting Design

After I complete my Design Team projects each month it seems I still have lots of great leftovers from each kit and sometimes they get put into a box, sometimes I give them away, and sometimes they sit out on my desk til the next project comes to mind. So today I thought I would share how I created one of the post Design Team reveal projects using the November Navy Pier & L kits i left sitting on my table.

This Hello Just Because card was created quick like 20 minutes quick(why couldn’t all projects get done that quick?).

I usually start with a little bit of an idea what to create, I pick what supplies I’m going to use then it all goes crazy after that because usually nothing ever goes as planned and it ALWAYS turns out different from what I thought. This is the pile I started with(see I told totally different then what I used in the end).

I started by cutting and layering pattern paper. Then everything looks better with a pretty ribbon and bow right? YES

Time for the sentiment I love the American Crafts stickers that were in the L kit(sorry it’s sold out) and wanted to use them on this card. I didn’t want it to all be flat so I added pop dots to the Hello sticker.

added a pretty flower sticker from that same American Crafts sticker sheet and another pop of color with that yellow pattern paper.

once I had the “front” finished I adhere to the card base.Yes I am a backwards card maker I usually always create my front then adhere it to the card base.

The finished card.

So what do you do with all those leftovers?

Stamp it! challenge
Black Friday all week long!
