At the Mix It Up Monday challenge at Stamp TV is to make a Bargello design for a background. I chose to use mine to create a graduation card.
I used the giant sentiment from the Gina K. Designs Lots of Lines set illustrated by Beth Silaika. I love those big sentiments as they look so neat on a card I think. I then rolled up some paper to look like a diploma and added a gold fiber bow and placed it on the card front. Oh, and I added a strip of my papers inside to match with the outer panel.
The Bargello technique is a great way to use up lots of little scraps and create a cool background. I had sticker paper and placed the strips on that but you can just glue them on a piece of card stock too! After they were added to the sticker paper I again cut them into strips again before I placed them on the card front. I spent more time looking for scraps then it took to make the card.
I hope you are having a good day. Thanks for stopping by too!
