Basic Grey challenge meets DCM challenge

The challenge over at Basic Grey is to use glitz and bling so I have encoporated that into my three scraplings I have made for the DCM challenge which is:

Scraplings are little narrow cards made from scrap cardstock. You know how when you make a card from a a piece of A4 or Letter sized cardstock you're left with an off-cut? Well that's the basis of a Scrapling. When folded in half, the Scrapling's card front will measure roughly 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" , though this depends of course on the size of card you were making in the first place!

Great challenge Paula I had such fun it was quick too. I used basic grey marrakesh papers. I used papermania stamps for all the stamped images and Anita's stickers for sentiments which are not stamps. I stamped all the images onto silver card and embossed with snowflake glitter embossing powder to give the sparkle. I cut out and used silcone glue to adhere to the matting and layering.

I added ribbon and bling to the cards and that is pretty much it. If you are wanting to batch make cards this is the perfect soloution these took about 40 minutes total.

These look wonderful - what a fab colour combo that is funny that papers from a range called Marrakesh can look s o frosty though!

FAB cards
I always feel a bit put out if I receive a tiny card. The ones you get in a pack form say Marksies, there is sometimes a tteny tiny one, not much bigger than the stamp on the envelope LOL BUT if I got one made so beautiul Id be happy as Larry!

Havea good weekend Pascale
keep warm and dry xx

Hi Pascale, hope you're well and truly settled in your new home (wish I was in mine - getting impatient now - plumber here in Germany are just like plumbers in the UK - hard to pin down lol).
These cards are absolutely beautiful - love the colours and delicious details. What a brilliant way of using up your scrap card - thanks for sharing - must commit that to memory.
Thanks for joining us at BG.
