Make a Card From Scraps

Make a Card Out of ScrapsOver the weekend, I found a plastic bag full of paper scraps, and I made this Valentine card mostly out of those scraps! My “system” is to shove scrap pieces into the card stock package, but these must have been some that were just loose for a long time and finally got collected into one bag when I HAD to clean up. Some of the colors were even retired! These Mixed Bunch stamps were already stamped on some scraps so I punched those out with the Blossom Punch. For the flower centers, I copied an idea I saw on Pinterest, making centers from little hearts! I used the heart punch in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and the 7/8″ Circle Scallop Punch.  The Honeycomb Embossing Folder was also in the bag of scraps so I used that as my background layer on a card base of Tempting Turquoise since the weather has warmed up and the sun has come out.  I thought we needed a bright card! The designer paper on the card is from the Stacked with Love Paper Stack in the Occasions Catalog. The greeting is stamped with the You Plus Me Stamp Set. There is also a bundle if you like that paper and stamp set, the You Plus Me Bundle. Find some scraps that you have and make an effort to use them in a card or other project today!
