I’m a huge fan of Spellbinders Nestibilities. It’s rare that I make a card without using one die-cut from my growing collection.
I can’t recall where I saw this idea, but it’s stuck with me and I finally had the chance to try it out.
I used scraps of paper left over from the Love edition pillow boxes I made for my Etsy shop , and arranged/adhered them on a piece of cardstock. Then I used one of my Nestibilities to cut out the collage, and it created a great background for this card.
This is a great way to use up scraps of patterned paper, while creating a unique background or focal point to the card.
I’m already making little piles of scrap paper that work together, so I can make some more collaged background shapes to have on hand.
Go and try it, I’d love to see what you come up with!
