Scrap Cards

Here are a couple of cards I put together using the scraps left over from the LO I did on Saturday. Usually I just put the papers in the scrap box but this time I made a determined effort to use them so that my scraps pile doesn't get any bigger. The base card is SU's River Rock.

For the first card I made another one of the rosette flowers adding a button to the centre as well this time. Then used just a couple of strips of the paper, added some twine I bought from Just Tracy's a while back and stamped the Anna Griffin sentiment in the bottom right corner using SU's Bravo Burgandy ink pad.

The second card is SU's River Rock again as the base card and I've used a Kanban decorative background stamp with River Rock ink pad to create a subtle pattern at the top of the card. Three strips of the My Minds Eye scraps across the bottom. I've then punched out a decorative label using an SU punch and added another Anna Griffin sentiment. The card was finished off with a Prima butterfly. Both quick and simple and all scraps of paper used up!

Well done Linda using up the scraps, mine always go straight into the bit box! Maybe we ought to have a card get together and we are only allowed to make cards with scraps!! Jill x

What a fabulous idea - these are absolutely gorgeous Linda. My scraps box is getting to a ridiculous height - I must use more and these cards are very inspiring to do just that! Hugs, Claire x
