WHAT THE SCRAP?

are you gals anything like me?...you have as many scraps as you do full sheets of paper?...well...i managed to finally do something with 'em...i made i card!...pretty festive, huh?...

scrappy card

just took all my scraps and cut into 4 1/4" by 1" strips...then got to punching!...used a martha stewart border punch for these...then...just started to adhere the stripes to a plain 'ol card base...finished it off with a sentiment stamp and some blingage...

how's that for easy?...you can do up these sorta cards for anything...just change up the color combo and sentiment...and you'll go through all your scraps in no time!...

I have tons of scraps. I actually attended a scrappy card class once. We made a dozen 3x3 cards using only scraps we brought with us. This is cute for bigger cards and for using that one-inch strip I cut off 12x12's when cutting out two cards.
