Thank You - Using Up Scraps


The weekend is over. I'm always a little sad about that. Tomorrow it's back to the regular routine of getting up early, making breakfast for the little guy, packing his lunch, and walking to school by 8:30AM. This week I'm focusing on making thank you cards for all our Christmas blessings. Family and friends have been so kind.

After creating my Christmas cards, I had a lot of strips of paper left over. You know, the strip of paper leftover when you use an edge punch, like the scalloped edge punch. I had already glued the strips down to this shape I cut with my Silhouette, when I saw Nichole mentioned her Scrap-tastic challenge for her senior design team.

I really like the card. I have other Scrap-tastic cards to finish up. Thanks for stopping by!

Card Ingredients
Stamps: Remember (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Kraft, Baja Breeze, & loads of strips of SU! designer papers

Wow, fantastic job on using up those strips of paper! I usually throw away anything that doesn't have 1" in size but I'm gonna save them from now on. Gorgeous card, Anthonette!
