Scrappy Mixed Media note card

Hello, Friends!
How are things going today?  I have a card from my scrap bin to share with you.  I was feeling the urge for some mixed media, so I have combined lots of inks, stains, paints, scraps, and stitching to create this card.  The base is half of a reclaimed index card (you know the ones that come with the craft store photo storage boxes?) that I use to swipe up leftover inks and paints from my craft mat. 

A peek at the inside
I used the same vintage dictionary paper that I used on the front to add a layer to my sentiment, which I printed and cut with my digital die cutter.  I made a whole page of sentiments to help me with my goal of finishing the insides of all of my cards as I make them. 

A close up to show all of the layering:

This is a really fun way to use up leftovers and experiment with new techniques, and all of the supplies I love to buy. 

Have a terrific, creative day!

Scraps from my stash
Vintage dictionary paper
Vintage Book paper
Archival Ink (black, deep purple)
