The 'Scrunch' with Moonshadow Inks

Following on from yesterday's scrunch card, here is the same idea with a different image, again from Joanna Sheen's Fashion Boutique CD. I love this image and I think it works well with the Moonshadow Inks. I have embossed the scrunch with gold embossing powder too which lifts the peaks of the paper and stand out from the burnt umber Moonshadow Ink

The best way to attach the scrunch to the front of the whole card is to put double-sided tape around all the edges of the card, right along the edges. Place the scrunch piece face down on the table, remove all the backing tape from the card then place the card onto the paper, then trim to fit. If you try to cut the scrunch to the size of the card you will find that because of the texture of the paper it will keep moving, you'll be trimming it forever, and never get it straight!

Once you have a pile of ready made backgrounds to hand, this card is actually very quick and easy to make.

More tomorrow!



  1. Beautiful card Jill, I have Burnt Umber so I will try this technique as I never thought of adding embossing powder after scrunching.
    Good luck for tomorrow

  2. I love this technique Jill but have never tried to cover the whole front of a card so thanks for the cutting tips.

  4. Love these scrunched backgrounds, Jill, they look great with the more vintage images. Thanks also for the tips to attach them to the card. I know the forever trimming and never straight feeling!!!!
