I made these two cards for my monthly card exchange!! I was working on these serendipities a few weeks ago and because they were still on my desk I chose to use them for these cards. I cut them with the largest labels framelit (SU) of the set and punched a slot (SU) on one side. I found two pieces of coordinating cardstock for the backgrounds and embossed them with a swirl embossing folder (TH). I added coordinating grosgrain ribbon to the left hand one and white vintage seam binding to the right hand one. I glued the ends to the back of the embossed layers with double sided tape before I adhered them to white card fronts. I laser printed the digital greetings which I downloaded from Pink Cat Studio and embellished them with gel pens. I die cut them with circle Nesties, layered them over a coordinating scallop circle (Nesties) and added them to the cards using 3D foam tape.
Serendipity is a wonderful technique for using up scraps. I should use it more often!! It might be a good "Art Every Day" project for me because I always have scraps sitting around on my desk. You can check out my other projects using this technique by clicking HERE!
