Using leftovers

Yesterday, I was making a layout and used my Silhouette Portrait to cut out a word (look for that layout next week... along with some exciting news! Hee!) I noticed that I was left with a lovely negative image from the word and decided that it was too pretty to toss. So, I used it to make a another card for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Repeats & Rainbows.

Again, I chose my rainbow colour scheme based on the patterned paper I was using and discovered that this colour scheme worked perfectly.... as is this time!


I used My Mind's Eye patterned paper and PTI cardstock (stamper's select white). I stamped my rainbow colours with one of the stamps from my new Funky Floral stamp set.


I diecut the end of my "colour" panel with PTI's tag sale 5 and added a little zigzag stitching to finish is off, along with some MME enamel dots.

Thanks for looking!

Great job with leftovers! The zigzag stitching is a great finishing touch. I love to see one more project appear when I think all I have left are scraps. Happy weekend!
