"Pure herring oil is the port wine of English cats."
------------Honore de Balzac
I bet I'm not the only one who has been trying to clean up their craft table lately! Am I right? I have a myriad of scraps and snippets, bits and pieces of things that I cannot bear to toss......so I have determined to use a bunch of them this coming year -- starting now!
I found this flower silhouette in my heap the other day. (Actually it was upright in a little plastic box.....I absolutely refuse to confirm or to deny whether I have a true "heap" on the other side of my craft mat!) It was a failed Perfect Pearls experiment that I had heat-embossed with sparkly powder. I fussy cut around the image to make it usable, at last.
The tags, from a cute but neglected little K&Co. tag-pad
The navy background was another failed Perfect Pearls attempt. The image never looked that great, so I wiped off the PP with a synthetic cotton ball....which only served to smudge it! But I actually kind of liked the gentle, shimmery gold aura it left. With the corner-punching, I think it looks nice behind the tags.
Here's an angled shot to show the shimmer and shine.
I wrapped some thrift store metallic gold yarn around the card and mounted the whole thing on a premade DCWV shiny, glittery gold card base.
As you see, I scored big on using bits and pieces from my heap (figure of speech only, still neither confirming nor denying!) on this card (YAY!!) and I think it actually turned out kind of pretty. Let me know what you think, too!!!
