Little Miss Muffet Stamps is sponsoring over at Hiding in My Craft Room this week, so I thought i'd make a card for their challenge which is to use up our scraps.
Today is my Husband's birthday, and my son needed a card for him. Dave's nickname for Jake is "Monse" (short for monster, even though Jake isn't really a monster, but he had his moments... Terrible Two's... nuff said eh?) Anyway, it's one of his nicknames that Dave still uses to this day, so a monster image will be just perfick...
I've used Monster Signs. I added the text to the signs with my paint program.
The papers used for this are mainly from different My Mind's Eye pads and there's a Stampin Up paper there too. I mostly buy 6x6" pads and cut down to fit my cards so I get quite a few 6x1" strips left over, so this challenge is perfect for using some of those up to make this background for my image. I chose the papers that matched mostly with the colours i'd used for the image. I took a 4" square of cardstock and glued the strips across it, trimmed the edges down a little, and folded them over to the back side before gluing the square in place on my base card. But it needed something else, so I drew around the square with a white gel pen to frame it.
Monster Signs was fussy cut out then added to the square with foam pads.
If, like me, you have an ice cream tub of scrap papers (ice cream all eaten first of course, any flavour you like), then you might want to join in too ;)
