Saturday Scraps with Susan (June 13, 2020)

What do you do with all those card making scraps? Throw them away?? Accumulate in a box or drawer?? 

Here’s one possible solution to the problem. Visit my blog each Saturday where I’ll post a different card design using the scraps I have accumulated throughout the week. These will be simple cards that only use paper scraps, cardstock, a stamp set, ink for stamping, and either a ribbon or embellishment to complete the card. (#SimpleStamping).

Here’s this week’s Saturday Scraps Card

To make this card:

  • Arrange the half inch strips of  your scraps in a diagonal pattern on some Whisper White cardstock cut to 3.75″ x 5.0″. Leave a space between each paper scrap. I used my Flowers For Every Season designer series paper scraps.
  • Attach the strips with glue and used scissors to cut off the strips that went beyond the cardstock. 
  • Choose a sentiment from a stamp set and decide what color of ink to use. I used  “Thank You” from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and stamped in Just Jade ink.
  • Use adhesive to attach the Whisper White cardstock to a complementary piece of cardstock. I used Just Jade cardstock cut to 4.0″ x 5.25″.
  • Select a coordinating ribbon, make a bow. and attach using mini glue dots. I used Bumble Bee ribbon.
  • Attach the complementary piece of cardstock to the card base cut to 4.25″ x 11.0″ scored at 5.50″. I used Bumble Bee cardstock.
