Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

The idea for today is to make a card using any shaped pattern or a die cut (I used a Nestibilities die by Spellbinders) to make a scalloped square card.

Cut two shapes, I used the scalloped square,  from card stock.  On the piece that you will use for the back of the card, score about 1/2 inch  down straight across the card.  Put adhesive on the scored section then line up the back with the front and adhere them together.  This will allow the card to open freely without any marks on the front of the card.

I used papers from the Linen Closet stack by DCWC.  The Penny Black image is a new Slapstick cling mounted stamp. I colored with Copic Markers. I stamped on a labels die from Spellbinders and matted with a lighter blue.  Flowers were punched from a small flower punch with a rhinestone center.  The bow was made from a larger bow on a present I received, and I  recycled.

You can used this technique for any Nesitbilities die.  Ovals, circles, squares, labels, the choices are limitless.

Hope you have a chance to try this technique.

I am entering this card in the challenge at Penny Black and Friends Saturday Challenge #144
The challenge is to used something that is recycled.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great start to the week.  Until later...............
