How to Use Small Paper Scraps on a Card

This project today shows how to use small paper scraps on a card! Do you ever have a bunch of little pesky scraps of designer paper that you like but you don’t want to just throw them away?!  Well, most of the time we SHOULD just throw away small paper scraps of any kind instead of hoarding every single piece! But since this Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack is brand new, when I saw all these little slivers of paper laying on the table after cutting some larger pieces, I just had to figure out a way to use them.

I chose Dapper Denim for the card base, since it is one of the coordinating colors with the Color Theory Paper. And for an extra colorful layer, I added Crushed Curry, another coordinating color.  And of course, Whisper White for the top layer.

I just laid out the strips of designer paper across the card to see how they would look, turning some on one side and some on the other side of the paper.  For a greeting, I chose one from the new stamp set Icing on the Cake and stamped with Berry Burst Ink. If you trim the ends, you can give it the banner look. I also added two of the little Glitter Enamel Dots, which come in ombre shades.  Be sure to order some of these new dots because they are very cute and fun and not too thick to put on cards you are going to mail.
