Scrap Rehab – Triptych

Today’s card is a “Thank You” card.  This card was inspired by Operation Write Home Card Sketch #5.

I have used a Stampin’ Up! set titled “Upsy Daisy” on this card front.  I’ve used Close To Cocoa ink on the stamp.

The card bases are yellow.  I’ve made another set of four (4) cards.

I went for a monochromatic color theme.  Oranges and yellows with brown ink.

The inside of the card was stamped with a Stampin’ Up! set titled “Of The Earth” and I used Close To Cocoa ink on this as well.

Here are the four (4) finished cards.  Once I had finished making them and had a few minutes to sit back and have a look at them it struck me that I had used fall colors.  Wonder if the cooler days are what inspired the color choice?

The scrap and trash left over from creating these cards is just this little pile.  There are several pieces I will keep to use on a different project some time.

If you would like to see how this card was created here is a full tutorial video taking you step by step through the entire process to do one of these yourself….or several of them 😀

Hope this has inspired you to go digging around in your scrap paper stash 😀

    Fabulous cards Leslie 🙂 Love that stamp too and obviously suits a triptych style. This is one of my favourite techniques and looks good when done in monochrome. Just made a triptych card in black and white for my sister – forgot to take a photo however I do have similar ones that I made for our daughters.

    Thank you for the lovely comment on my postcard post, that was the one that went awry and had a huge halo around the bird’s belly and had to turn t over and start again – the second attempt had a smaller halo so obviously improved 🙂

    Love and hugs

      Thank you, Lynn, for your encouragement in my card making skills. I’m probably remembering things incorrectly, but didn’t you do a triptych on something for your daughter’s wedding several years back? I can’t believe we have been blogging buddies for several years already! I do seem to remember your had shown something featuring a triptych.

      I see you have a new post. I’m off to go see it. Thank you, again, for your encouragement.

      Love you – Leslie

    Such pretty cards.
    I like the panels and how the image stretches across them all.

      Thank you, Tracy. This card was fun to make…made my brain have to do a little work 😉 Hope you have had tons of fun at your scrapbooking weekend event.

      Hugs to you – Leslie

    These look great! The flowery panel designs fit so well with one another. Also, I enjoy knowing there’s isn’t much trash left over after the final product! What a fun post!
