How to use Scrap-busting ideas in card making

Today’s project is focused on How to use Scrap-busting ideas in card making. If you seen yesterdays blog post you will have seen that I made two pretty gift boxes. As with all box making, more often than not you will be left with some scrap pieces of either card stock or DSP.

Well, I decided to utilise those straight away to make two super quick and easy fun handmade cards. And here are my cards

These are the little boxes that created all those scrap pieces.

Most of the square scrap pieces measured just under 1″ so I trimmed them down to 3/4″ roughly and layered up on a piece of alternate coloured card.

I can’t decide which is my favourite! What is yours?

Sentiments were stamped in the same two colours as the card bases. The sentiments were from the Itty Bitty Birthdays and the Here’s A Card stamp sets.

Both sets are really versatile and have a font for every taste!
