Paper craft project no. 74: Cherish you freestyle collage card

2013-11-01 Cherish you freestyle collage card

Here’s an A2 card I created for Nonni’s 2nd Christmas Card Challenge: Use Scraps and/or Old Stash. Notice anything in the card? I didn’t use any stamps! It was a tough one, as I’m always reaching for my stamps. However, I thought I’d challenge myself and make a no-stamping card ;-)

Nonni’s challenge is pretty self-explanatory. For a scrap stash hoarder like me, it wasn’t difficult to find scraps — I’ve got them everywhere! :-P Anyway, all the supplies I used to make this card are from old stash and open packages. The designer paper, chipboard arrows, wooden alphas, and photogram are all from Pink Paislee. The washi tape…well, I found a roll in my emergency stash (a first-aid kit that I’d emptied out so I can put some must-have craft supplies in — hey, I never know when I’m going to have a craft emergency!) and thought…well, I think this card can make room for a bit of red, Christmas-y washi tape!

While the card looks like a Valentine card at first glance, I thought it will work as a Christmas card too because of all the colors. In fact, I created this with my husband in mind — and now I’ve got a card I can give him for Christmas! He’ll be happy since it’s non-traditional :-)

So…if you’ve got scraps or old stash, why not use them in a card and enter it in the challenge? Just head on over to Nonni’s blog and check out what Nonni and the other ladies in her DT have created. See you there!
