I made this card & scratch pad holder for a friend of mine that I thought needed some cheering up. I've had this Lasting Impressions polka dotted paper forever and never knew what to do with it. I usually use their paper to emboss on and cut the embossed pieces out. It never dawned on me to use it as a background paper until now! Duh! I embossed the flowers and put a doodlebug sugar coated brad through the centers. I adhered them to the card using foam tape, then stamped "to a sweet friend" at the bottom with an A Muse stamp.
To make the scratch pad, I bought a pack of small plain scratch pads at Staples. I then cut a piece of cardstock to fit around the scratch pad and created the topper to (somewhat) match the card. I didn't have any extra of the polka dot paper so I used some other Lasting Impressions scrap paper for the topper. I used the same A Muse stamp to stamp the sentiment at the bottom of the first page. I love how this turned out, and I hope my friend loves it too!
Hope you have a great weekend. I have a busy one planned, two Caps home games this weekend. Hoping for a 2 win weekend!
