Life’s Adventure

I’ve come to enjoy the Scrapbooking WYW extra card projects – they are great for using up your papers after your layouts are full.  I often use the pattern and then adapt the card based on what stamps I have or what I need a card for.

Truth be told, I only used this stamp because I wanted to play with the new You Are Here Cricut Collection! I must say, it is my favorite so far!

The WYW Project used 4 1/4″ pieces of wood grain zip strip for the top and bottom pieces. Because I make card kits for my classes, I decided to use cardstock and emboss it with the woodgrain. I ran a 1 x 4 1/4″ strip of cardstock through my Cuttlebug and then cut it in half to get the 1/2 x 4 1/4″ pieces.

Next, I cut a 1 1/4 x 4 1/4″ piece and a 2 x 4 1/4″ piece from the red plaid paper (flip the 2″ strip over to get the red hash lines)

For the stamping I used the background from the Mountain image (#M2762A3A). The stamped showed to cut this at 2.5″ high, but as you can see from my picture, I had a hard time lining up the image at that size. So, I recut the White Daisy at 2.6″. Then I cut Peacock at 2.75″ for the mat and stamped in Pewter.

I embellished with Whisper Thick Twine and some Black and White Dots.
Enjoy!
