Art by Marlene collage papers, Oh So Lovely, Pierced Blooms

Art by Marlene and bright die cuts

Todays card is one of those where I wanted to try and use a product up … admittedly one panel isn’t going to do it but it’s a start!

I no longer feel the urge to do art journaling so I am looking at some of my supplies and trying to find ways of using them … for example these Art by Marlene collage papers. Not all of them work on cards as the designs are quite large but I thought this one worked as a background to a larger size card blank like this one.

But then it needed something quite bold to work with it as the paper is so bright and so busy. So I cut some panels of cardstock and then used die cuts to tray and create a focal point above the busy background. I think this along with the stamped and embossed and fussy cut sentiment worked quite well.

I added in the little pearlescent flowers too to add a different texture.

So I’ve not exactly used up my collage paper stash .. I’ve still got a fair few pieces left but at least I found a use for one panel and quite like the card I created using it! Now what to do with the rest?

Happy crafting!
