Got Scraps? CutCardStock DT Project

Got Scraps? Of course you do! Today's card focuses on using those paper scraps. All of the paper scraps that I'm using are from CutCardStock.

I pulled out two tones of a variety of colored cardstock and some gold glitter cardstock.  I wanted each circle to have a light and dark tone of the same color but you can choose to do whatever you like. Once I decided on colors, I used an inch & a quarter (1 1/4") circle punch and then used my cutter to cut each circle in half. Now my paper cutter has a little well and these circles fit perfectly in there to get a perfect half circle slice.

Once I cut all the circles in half, I used adhesive tape strips to adhere the circles together to make it easier when deciding on the locations on the card front.

I needed 12 total circles (24 half circles) to cover the standard A2 card (four rows of three).

Once I adhered the circles, I added a 2.75" vellum circle to anchor the stamped image of the two China dolls. Aren't they so cute?! I was gifted these stamps as well as many others from a fellow stamping friend of mine.

I used Cougar Smooth white cardstock from CCS to stamp both the images and the sentiment. I also used this cardstock for the cardbase. The Cougar Smooth cardstock is my GO TO especially when stamping!

The white in the circles is the Wedding Cake Textured White cardstock. I don't have a list of which colored cardstocks that I used, but they are all from CCS along with the glitter gold cardstock. I love their glitter cardstock because it's inbedding into the paper so you don't get glitter everywhere!

The China dolls were colored with a variety of water based and alcohol markers. I love the scratchy look to the kimonos! Super simple and nothing fancy!
