Thrifty Thursday

Good morning my sweet creative friends! HAPPY FRIDAY "EVE"! Well, I am SOOO READY for the weekend so I am HAPPY that tomorrow is Friday!  hehehe! 
Welcome to another "Thrifty Thursday"! WOW, all I can say is that I am ALWAYS AMAZED at what you can actually do w/those scraps!  Here is a picture of my scraps that I used today! I forgot to include the little scrap that I used for the sentiment :( I like to have a few card bases in my scraps! Only because if I just use a portion of one of my card stock, I immediately make a card base for future projects so I just like to keep those handy in my binder full of scraps! That's why a lot of times my card bases are ODD sizes.…. For example this card base measures 4 x 5.25.  I just used my Fun Stitched Edge die for my piece of polka dot paper, attached it to my card base! OH, before I did that, I used a polka dot embossing folder to embossing the card base first! THEN, I adhered the pattern paper to a little less than half of my card then trimmed off the excess! THen I used my Star Dies to cut my burlap paper to make a cute embellishment.  I made my embellishment by making a double bow w/my hemp twine, hot glued that down to my larger star, then adhered the smaller star directly on top of the twine using hot glue as well! Then I added a large sequin from Teresa Collings, then adhered a little white enamel dot on top~! Last I used the smaller star as a tag to stamp my sentiment on, then I made a tiny hole using one of my punches. I ended up using these star dies as an CUTE embellishment AND for a tag on my simple card for you today! 

MCT products used:
~ Stitched Edge Dies (will be back in stock next week)
~ Paper is scraps from my stash! ;)
