Mixed Media Card with Cheery Lynn Designs

Happy Monday crafty peeps, I hope you had a fantastic weekend! It's my day to share a project over on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog.

My project today is another way to use your die cuts that you might have saved from various projects. I keep a scrap bag of my cuts and wanted to use them in a bit of a new way.

I gave each of my cuts a coat of gesso and then attached them. Once they were adhered, I used a bit of mist and dripped it around the card for a very subtle shabby chic look.

When I started on this project I had no idea if this would be a disaster or what the outcome would be. For my flowers, I assembled them first, then added the color.

Some elements are cut from cereal box chipboard like my hinges, others just are paper scraps that I had and a few new cuts. It was a fun way to use up scraps that do not match. A bit of cheese cloth was added under the Rustic Birdhouse and I did use foam dots to provide dimension.
