Scrap Backgrounds with Sarah This week I would like to show you a technique I used on my card on Monday for DT inspiration. I use this technique when stuck for that perfect patterned paper or background to match your theme or embellishments and is also a great way to use up those scraps and make room for some new stash. Begin by selecting lots of scraps of card stock and patterned paper.
Cut them to different widths.
You can either stick them together or stick them to a thin piece of patterned paper.
Once stuck, trim to the required size. At this point you can cut them on a diagonal as well. Take a sewing machine and roughly stitch around the outside edge and up and down the strips.
Once stitched, add them to your card bases and decorate with your images, or embellishments. And here are the finished cards
