Town Scrapper Challenge: Save A Tree

Hi All,

Over at The Town Scrapper blog, we have a Friday challenge to SAVE A TREE.  That means to use scraps, or minimal amount of cardstock.  Head on over to the blog to take a look!  We are also following a theme of Father's Day or masculine projects during the month of June, so you will see lots of men/boy cards this month.

My card used loose pieces of DSP that I needed to use up, and for the mats, I used pieces that had things punched out of them!  I thought it was a good way to re-use some of the CS that probably would have been thrown out.

Here is my card:

My card base is Blue Bayou, followed by a scrap rectangle of Walk in the Park DSP. That was matted with Basic Black and Whisper White pieces (the black had a big rectangle and a circle punched out of the middle, but I covered it with the layers).  Same thing with the next rectangle panel.  I wrapped some Baja Breeze stitched ribbon around that layer, and adhered it to the base.  I punched 3 stars out of Certainly Celery and More Mustard scraps, and stuck them to the ribbon.

The image is by Victoria Case for The Town Scrapper - isn't he darling?  I love his extra loose tie, and his oversized shoes!  I used PTI White CS, and coloured him with Copics, then cut him out, and mounted him on with Dimensionals.  The sentiment is also from TTS, and it was cut out with a 1" Circle punch, and mounted with a 1 1/4" Basic Black circle.  I then mounted the sentiment onto the middle star.

I hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
