Today I’m sharing a card made with bits and pieces off the desk. Does anyone else end up accumulating lots of bits from random projects and then feel you have to leave them in sight otherwise they will ‘go to waste’?
So I have a coaster on my desk on which stamped images and die cuts and random embellishments live…
I just can’t bring myself to either file away or throw out these little bits and pieces. And for good reason… sometimes the perfect project comes along that needs these pieces. This card is one such project and absolutely every part of this was sat on my desk waiting to be used!
Firstly … Memories and More cards … they do most of the hard work! Cute birds cut from one card, the Happy is another card cut down as is the floral piece and the dark green background.
The sentiment is one of the prestamped ones from another project. The die cut leaves are either in Pretty Peacock and die cuts from the Splendid Stems set, or the white side of the Forever gold laser cuts.
The gem is from the stash and then the linen thread is the last from the spool that I had on the desk … I’m now in a major panic to get another SU order in as I can’t live without this in my craftroom!
Even the card blank was just sitting on the desk waiting to be used!
This came together in about 10 mins and I am really happy with it!
