scraps, scraps, scraps!

I'm super happy with this card because it was quick and easy to make and, except for the card base, I used only pieces from my scrap stash to make it! Woo Hoo! You know how I love my scraps!

I stamped the poinsettia from the perfect presentation set on a scrap strip of whisper white and punched it out with the 3/4" circle punch. I used the 1" circle punch to make the green circles out of a scrap strip of garden green and the 1 1/4" circle punch to punch some red circles out of a scrap strip of real red. I centered the garden green circle on the real red circle and used a dimensionals to attach the punched out flower in the center of the garden green circle.

I used the holly background from the background basics set (thank goodness this little super versatile set is not retiring!) and stamped it in garden green on the garden green card base. I added 4 strips of certainly celery card stock cut from longer scrap strips and added the flower at the end of each strip. I then stamped the word joy from the So Many Sayings set on the top three strips and the holiday happiness sentiment, also from the so many sayings set on the last strip.

So what do you think? Fun and super easy, right? And the sketch can easily be used for other occasions which means that this is the perfect layout to use up all of your scrap strips of card stock. So go on, make scrap cards of your own. Once you start you may just be hooked!
