How I made a card out of scraps…

I love it when I can create an entire card out of things left on my work table.  Last week I was busy making gift boxes with coloring cards inside.  You can see that post here.  Included in the box are colored envelopes I made out of colored card stock and my envelope punch board.  As I was cleaning up I found left over colored card stock that could be made into a 4-1/4 x 4-1/4 card.  I also found some whisper white and some embossed Festival of Trees punced with the Tree Punch from a failed card attempt a few weeks ago.  Put it all together and this is what came out.

I love the red bows using Real Red 1/8 inch striped ribbon.  The sentiment is from Lighthearted Leaves which also happened to be sitting on my desk.  The Home For Christmas Enamel Dots balanced out the card.10-31-2015 4-25-49 PM

Don’t forget the inside,  I used the Home for the Holidays and my markers to adorn the inside.

  1. Great job using scraps! I just might gather up my scraps…I have a few…and make a similar card. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love when something wonderful comes from something I struggled with. I often set things on the side of my table and come back to them. Love that you made this card with a scrapped project – it’s adorable.

  3. This is such a cute card! I seem to never use my extras….I keep trying though….I love the trees and the believe sentiment…
