Scraps to card

First I want to thank all that had left a comment to enter into my giveaway.  I'm running a bit behind on my crafting schedule, but the winner will be posted tomorrow.  For today, I just wanted to share another card I made with some leftover scraps I had.
The technique here is called Iris Folding.  A very basic square pattern.  I hope to make a video tutorial on this technique very soon.  The heart was die cut, the grid paper was punched with a circle punch, and the Iris Folded portion were all scraps.  The sentiment was stamped on a predesigned piece I had for years.  The stamp is from Papertrey Ink.  I added faux stitching around the box and hand drew a square around the focal point.  Keep those scraps and put them to use!  Happy stamping!!

  1. I look forward to your tutorial. I've seen cards made this way and they always turn out so bulky. Yours looks like you took the obvious step to use less layers. I love using up scraps, so this is a win-win card (and it's lovely).
