We're still eschewing patterned paper at Jingle Belles, and celebrating Cardstock Christmas! This week I've used one of my favorite "scrap-busting" techniques: cut them into strips of various size and arrange them in quilt-like patterns.
It's also quite an addictive process, so I'm not sure I've ever sat down and only made just ONE panel. In this case, I made a red and a green; then pressure embossed them (the green used Spellbinders' Forevergreen; the red features an older Sheena Douglass folder that seems to be OOP) and added a little sanding and Unicorn Ink to emphasize the texture. Large fabric flowers, ancient ribbon and brads, bold cardstock mats and machine stitching complete the design(s).
