Save those scraps!

If you're like me, you just can't bear to throw out those little scraps of beautiful patterned paper, that are often left over from card making or scrap-booking. Here's a card layout that's perfect for using some of them up. The strip on the front of the card is only 1.5 " wide and the one on the inside is 1 inch wide. I have a couple of other examples of this layout in the store, one uses a scrap of beautiful Japanese paper and each is layered on a strip of metallic cardstock. Splitting up the panel allows you to either stamp a sentiment, or use a peel off sticker as I did on this card. I also used the diamond lace edger punch to show off the paper inside. Another quick and easy card...perfect to mass produce with a variety of sentiments so you'll always have a card ready for any occasion. Or you could make a boxed set of cards to give as a gift. Speaking of boxed cards, my friend Jennifer (Madison Avenue Designs)has sets of cards for sale here in the store. They are just $12 for four cards and right now there are birthday, thank you and baby cards available. Be sure to take peek next time you stop in!
