If you are like me there are scraps left over from projects. Today I’ll share How to make a Birthday Wishes Card Using Scraps. The focal point is an image from Calico Collage Natures Glory digital journal kit. The Birthday Wishes Stamp is from Brutus Monroe as is the Detail Ink – Raven.
When I clean up after a project I try to see if there is some way I can use up the bits and pieces that are left over. Looking at the Natures Glory image I knew it would be a perfect focal image on a greeting card.
Since I knew I also needed to make a project featuring a Stamp Club set from Brutus Monroe I had several sets on my desk. Flipping through the stamps I saw the Birthday Wishes and an idea formed.
Here is a video showing How to make a Birthday Wishes Card Using Scraps.
Washi tape from my stash added another layer to the card. On my desk was a tied black and white bow and a smaller waxed linen bow. Self-adhesive rhinestones add a touch of bling.
A page torn from an old book also makes a great background. Don’t worry I didn’t destroy a best seller book. It was one that I picked up at a thrift store. Usually, these old books can be found for under a dollar and these have nice old pages that can make great backgrounds on cards.
Next time you are cleaning up your work area take a look at those scraps and see what else can be done. That way you don’t store the scraps, you make a finished project.
Head over to the Brutus Monroe Blog – A simple Card is featured that I made. This project is the February Stamp Club and is a super cute set. I’ll be using this set in the future, you don’t want to miss out on this one.
It was a lot of fun to make and I also worked on my goal of using items in my stash. A few more bits of paper, ribbon and flowers are now used. Love projects like this, don’t you?
Interested in purchasing the finished cards I make? I offer many of my cards in my store. The cards a usually blank inside and come with a matching envelope. The cards I make are A2 size or 4.25 in. x 5.5 in. in size. If you are wanting a greeting on the inside feel free to email me to discuss details or to connect with me via my Facebook page.click here.
Made a great “It’s Time To Celebrate” Greeting card, There is a video that shows all the steps. Super easy to make. I just love gold embossing powder it adds so much to projects.
