Today I have a card I put together with an effort to use what I have. It's January and I want to reduce the size of the stash, craft stash. I have accumulated lots of paper over the past 10 years of crafting but as many who enjoy this hobby can tell you- no matter how much paper you have there isn't a single piece of paper that is right for this card.....I need to get something different.
I starting by creating the focal point then searched high and low through my paper stash for something that would work. I found something that had the right feel but wasn't the right color. So I decided to pull out my polka dots out to stamp on top in the right color. I was thrilled on how it turned out and I'm sure I saved myself a ton of money.
Here you can see the papttern paper I chose with the dots on top.
