I love the 6x6 Bundles from Authentique Paper for creating cards, but even if I cover the front of a standard A2 card, I still have small scrap strips left over.
I don't want to throw away those beautiful scraps, so I save them to use for cards like these:
Using a few coordinating strips as a base gives a great start to any card (and is an easy way to make a quick coordinating card set).
You can create a simple look by adding a simple stamped sentiment, or you can add layers of embellishments to create a vintage look.
For this card set I layered on doilies, vintage playing cards, buttons, twine, string, and twill ribbons.
What do you do with your scraps?
Thanks for coming by today!
