Use up those scraps...

Here is a quick card idea in which you can incorporate some of your scrap pieces of DSP or left over card stock...
(Photos are of one of the card-kits used in my June classes, showing different arrangements of same pieces.)

Not a lot of instructions needed...just punch out different sizes or shapes...using scraps that fit your punches.
Stamp your greeting first, onto a 3 3/4 x 5" piece of white card stock.
Arrange punched pieces as desired around your greeting, then glue them down, using Tombo glue.

Now...to add that "wow" look...run it through your Big Shot, using a ("busy") embossing folder.








Now, center and attach embossed, cs on a  4 x 5 1/4" piece of colored card stock that matches one of your scraps.
Next, center and attach this "mat" to the front of your scored and folded  4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card base.
 
You're Done!

Anniversary card...

Today I am sharing photos of a card I made for my husband.
We recently celebrated 42 wonderful years together...and it has been a journey that is truly priceless!

It may not be your anniversary, but why not make your husband a special card today...'just because'!

(Since this card evolved as I worked on it, I haven't listed everything I used to create it. I did not limit myself to 'just current' stamp sets...so 3 of the 5 sets I used have retired.)

Thanks for stopping by!
