Do you have paper, paper, and more paper? A new year is a great time to pull out those stacks of unused papers and play, play, play -- Welcome to the Use Your Stash blog hop, if you have hopped from Janet's blog, you are on the right track. If you get lost along the way or wish to start from the beginning hop over to Joy's blog.
My project uses Close To My Heart paper from years ago and inspired by a Pinterest post.
Using the Cricut Craft Room and the Art Philosophy cartridges, a 4" x 5 1/4" rectangle with a shape (not welded) was placed in the right hand corner and on some a border was added across the middle, again using the don't weld option.
Each rectangle not halved by using an Art Philosophy border, was cut using White Daisy cardstock. Now it was time to cut a space in the center - some were cut straight some on a diagonal - cut once, move the piece top piece up 1/8" to a 1/4" and cut again.
Happy Birthday from the Holiday Tags (D1560) was stamped next to the cutout image.
While working on these cards, I found my stash of card bases. Several were created from retired cardstock. I used these card bases to attach the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" pattern paper. Using 3D foam tap, the White Daisy overlays were attached. I did create a few with the White Daisy overlay attached directly to the pattern paper.
Happy Birthday was added to a little flagged tag and a black cardstock flagged leaf completed this card.
Now hop on over the Tabbi's blog to see what they have created using up their paper stash --
