A New Begging

I decided to take the left over papers from yesterday and make another card.  The girl I will be giving this to did not pass her exams on the first try.  It broke her heart. 

I used the same carts again too!  I used Elegant Edges for the mats.  It's absolutely the perfect cartridge for that!  I used Give a Hoot for the owl.  It's fun to use carts you haven't used in awhile! 

I flipped some of the papers over and you are now seeing the side B of them.  Instead of cutting out more zigzags, I used the cut out portion from the ones I just made and used it as a mask and smooshed distress ink through them.  Same twine and another sticker from the same K&Co. package.

I don't think I have ever done this type of thing before.  It went quite quickly.  I may have to do this more often!

Today looks so much brighter!  Crafting really is good for the soul!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Such a cute card and a great idea to use up the scraps! Love the way you used the twine too! I am popping by from the Circle MB link and am already a follower of your blog!

  2. Another great card. I'm really loving these papers and colors you're using. Way to go on using your scraps too.

  3. This card is so cute! and I hear you on the scraps! I need to use up a bunch, but I did do a purge and got rid of most.

    But I really love everything about this card, all the details! so cool!

  4. What a sweet card! It is so thoughtful. The red on your mats make everything - the owl, butterfly, sentiment- just pop. TFS
