Similar to last week, this weeks card features flowers.
After layering the papers on this card, I wanted to add some sort of embellishment but quickly found that I had nothing in my stash that coordinated. To solve this problem, I simply cut one of the orange flowers out of a small scrap of the same floral paper used on the card. I then punched a circle out of the floral paper on my card, stamped and heat embossed another circle inside my punched circle, and attached my orange flower with a foam square to give it some dimension. I had created the perfect embellishment.
I often do this - cut things out of patterned paper and use them as embellishments - even when I am working on scrapbook layouts. Yes, it is a little time consuming, but it saves the pennies in that I can get a perfectly coordinated embellishment without paying any extra for it.
Is this something any of you do? It is a really handy little trick, that I highly recommend.
