Do you have a lot of scrap paper? Is is plain card stock or Designer Series Paper? What do you do with the scraps?
My friend, Stacy, has been asking me these very questions. She suggested I do a class and show them how to make cards with just scrap pieces of paper. Do I have a lot of scraps? ABSOLUTELY!!! That is why this class was good for me too. I get to create 5 cards and use up some of my scrap pieces of paper! It was a win win situation! Over the next week or so you will get to see all the cards we made at class last night.
This first card I had made this style a long time ago and thought it was a perfect design to use up my birthday paper from the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack. I read on a blog, I don't remember which one, that it is the easiest to glue down the bottom layer of the presents first and then the Designer Series Paper. I totally agree, it was much easier. I used the word window punch and the stamp set And Many More and they are both on the retirement list. If you want to buy this very useful punch or stamp set, order it soon or it might be gone. Don't forget to use the hostess code below.
Here are the measurements for this card:
Pool Party Card Stock #322924
- 5 1/5" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
- 1 1/8" x 2 1/8"
- 1 5/8" x 2 5/8"
- 2 1/8" x 3 1/8"
Cherry On Top Designer Series Stack #138443
- 1" x 2"
- 1 1/2" x 2 1/2"
- 2" x 3"
- 4" x 5 1/4"
Whisper White Card Stock #100730
- 4" x 5 1/4" - this is used for the inside of the card
- scrap piece for the saying
For the inside of the card I used the Balloon Celebration stamp set to stamp balloons on the white card stock and the envelope. I used cucumber crush, daffodil delight and watermelon wonder for the balloons. I used the #01 pen from the Project Life Journaling Pens to make the strings from the balloons. I tried to put a loop in my strings to match the one on the biggest package on front.
You can use so many different designs of paper to make this card. You could make it masculine, for kids, for babies, really for anyone. What kind of card are you going to make with your scraps?
Thank you for stopping by today and have a great weekend!
