Botanical Gazette Project Repurposed

One of the projects we made at Leadership 2011 was a clear stamp case notebook. We used a piece of Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper (from the 2011 Occasions Mini Catalog and no longer available- sorry!) as the insert and added all kinds of fun stuff, like Crochet Trim and Trinket Keys. It was a really neat project, but I never used, other than to have it on display. So I decided to cut it up and make cards out of it! (The stamp case now has framelits stored in it!)

This was the main design of the insert, which shows both sides of the DSP. We added some stamping using the Clearly For You (now discontinued) stamp set. The Crochet Trim was originally tied around the spine of the clear stamp case. I punched a piece of the DSP and added it as a border for my card.

More of the original insert, another punched border. I used Four Frames and the "thanks" from Fabulous Phrases for this card. Also a piece of Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon that I had from another project. 

Last piece of DSP, part of it cut off and turned around to show both patterns. Added a piece of Twill Tape (now discontinued) that was from a ribbon sampler I bought from Stampin' Up! and a piece of Very Vanilla Seam Binding. I thought a greeting would look too cluttered, so I left it as a blank card.

Colors: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
