Unicorn Card: Using Up Scraps


Hello! Today I’m stopping in with a fun card that uses up a lot of old scraps.

The background scrap is from THIS blog post, and the background is made just as in that post. It uses Fresh Peach, Ultra Pink, Grape Juice and Navy and the ever fabulous Star Confetti die.

I used another blended background from THIS card, using Orchid and Passion Flower, and die cut with the Heart Infinity dies. I topped the die cut with an adorable unicorn from THIS card.

Finally, the only thing I made specifically for this card was the sentiment. The sentiment, from Mer-mazing Messages, was heat embossed in gold on navy cardstock, and then die cut using one of the flag dies from Ribbon Messages Stamp & Cut.

Everything was topped off with some golden gems, and that finished off the card.

I’m kind of obsessed with this specific background – click the images below to see more cards made with it!

What about you? Do you have a lot of leftover scraps from previous projects? Do you use them often?
