Peel-Offs revisited

If you've been crafting for as many years as I have, you probably have a stash of peel offs somewhere - ones that you never use any more apart from the occasional border or sentiment. Yet you can't bear to throw them away. Or is that just me?

Today I dug out one of my ancient albums of peel offs and had a play with some long-forgotten friends.

I cut  an aperture in my card, slightly larger than the peel off flower I planned to use (the sheet it came on is called "Magnolia style" - I don't know whether that has anything to do with Magnolia stamps) and backed the aperture with acetate, then applied my peel off to the acetate to make the flower look as if it is suspended in mid air. I edged the aperture with border and corner peel offs and added a simple stamped sentiment.

I am sharing this with

Oh golly I adore my peel offs although they are hardly used these days!! Your card is super, what a great one you have gone for. Love Hazelx

Great idea. I feel inspired to look out my odds and ends of peel offs now.

Lovely CAS card, Jane, a great use of your peeloffs. The acetate window is so effective. You're not alone in hanging onto your peeloffs. I'm sure it will go full circle one day and they'll be really popular again. xx

Wonderful card Jane - and I have two concertina folders jam packed with peel offs - not to mention a bundle of Christmas ones as well. This is a gorgeous one you sed, very clever using the acetate as well. I think the flower bloom is a bit like a magnolia flower isn't it? Gorgeous!
