...Ways To Use It Challenge #163

This is my submission for today's Ways To Use It Challenge ~ Snip, Snip ~ at SCS. We were to incorporate a creative use of scissors in our designs. I started with a Bashful Blue Cardstock base, and layered it with the following: Basic Black Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, and Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper (DSP). The red flower was created by stamping a scrap piece of Real Red Textured Cardstock with one of the flowers from the set "Stitched Exotics" in Jet Black Staz-On Ink. It was cut out using CutterBee Scissors, then a Pewter Build-a-Brad was added to its center. The sentiment was from the set "Fabulous Flowers", and it was stamped in Real Red Classic Ink before it was colored with a Certainly Celery Stampin' Write Marker.

Three Real Red Cardstock circles were punched out using the 1/4" Circle Punch, then an Old Olive Brad was added to the center of each and attached to the DSP panel. Each layer (including the flower) was attached to the card base using Dimensionals. The scissors were then used to snip the edge of the card where it opens...and there you have it!

That's it for today! I will be back tomorrow to share a creation for the Limited Supplies Challenge, and to give you all an update on Christian. I have also received a couple of awards, so I will catch up on those, too! Until then....Hugs ~ Mercy
