Cards Using Negative Space

It's Monday and we are back from the weekend- hope everyone enjoyed National Scrapbooking Day! Even though the weekend is over, and it's Monday there's no reason to be completely negative, but we are going to give some reason to be a little! Today we are talking negative space, not the negative,empty, white space that is left unfilled on on layouts and cards. What we mean is that negative space left over from a punch, a die, a die cutting machine. We want to see how you use the negative rather than the positive. Here are five fabulous examples from our designers of how you can now use that negative scrap that you typically are inclined to throw away...

Practical Scrapper Caz cut out some love hearts on her cameo and then popped up the negative card that was left to make this quick and simple card
