Scraps = Cool card layouts

By | April 27, 2017

Todays cards show how you can use some of those scraps you have laying around your craft space. One card is a top folding 4¼” x 5½” and the other is side folding with the same measurements.

This Fresh Fruit card features six strips ¾” x 3¾” adhered to a mat of 4″ x 5¼”, which then is backed with dimensionals and adhered to the card base.  Any of the fruit in the set could be used for the background of the greeting and you could even heat emboss the greeting for a more intense look.

This card features scraps of Serene Scenery Designer series paper, which unfortunately is sold out, but you can use any scraps the measure 5″ long and about 1 ¼” wide will work. Adhere the outside two first then center the third in the center to a base 4″ x 5¼”. Focal image of the deer was stamped off in Soft Suede and greeting stamped full strength.

I just love how these came out. Why not create a beautiful handmade gift of a series of these cards all with different designer series paper scraps, the recipient is sure to love them!

Some of the products used are on the retired list and may be sold out and are available only while supply lasts. Retiring stamp sets are available until May 22nd, then while supplies last. Numerous products can be substituted to recreate these cards.
