Welcome to Scrappy Saturday!
The only time I really craft with scraps is when I get the idea to craft with scraps! This month, I'll be making cards without cutting into any new paper. If I don't have the absolutely "right" color, I'll make do. (That's the hardest thing for me. Not using the right color.)
I took my inspiration from a Hungarian blogger who was recreating expensive notebooks that she wanted. I started with the multicolored scrap in the center and pulled colors that would work with it. I changed the direction of my stitches and decided to use colored ink. Then I remembered I had a stamp that also had stitch marks, and used that.
I'm not gonna lie...this card was a pita to make. Lots of trimming to get everything the right size. And then the stitch marks! (You could of course do those with a machine if you wanted.) Anyway, only one...and only for a very special person!
