Best out of Scrap

Hello All,

Back after a long time. I think this is my first post for the New Year...
I have made two cards using the same technique but used them in different ways.
The technique is called Bargello which a quilting technique. I found it to be a good way to use scrap strips of paper. I have used this technique in a previous post Bargello Paper Quilting
Lot of different looks can be achieved just by changing the arrangement of the papers.

Birthday card. I have used the technique to create the background.

In the card above I have used scrap strips of paper to create the background. The oval on which the sentiment is stamped is also a scrap form another project.

Love card. Here I have cut out the heart.

Here I first did the arrangement of the scrap pattern paper and then cut the heart shape out. The border is also a scrap.

Hope you liked both the cards. Keep the comments coming.

Thanks and cheers
