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!

  3. Really cute Tifany. I love those little lambies.

  4. These are absolutely wonderful!

  5. Fantastic! I love your lamb....the whole look of the card. I try and use my scraps much the same way. I am now on a mission to use my scraps. For the little ones that I have, I punch out my gear and put them on my box that I am trying to decorate since it sits where you can see it. I love the look of the layered gears (like Tim Holtz does) so that is how I use them.
