Do you have thin strips of paper left and don't know what to do with them?  They are too pretty to throw away and if your like me, you don't want to waste paper.  Do you need a fast thank you or birthday card?  I have the perfect card for you!  When I saw this card on Pinterest I knew it would be great to use all those thin strips of paper I had.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Sahara Sand Card Stock #121043

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Rich Razzleberry Card Stock #115316

  • 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"

Blooms and Bliss Card stock #141654

  • cut 3 of 1/2" x 5 1/2"

I stamped the background with a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Sahara Sand ink.  I also used the ink to sponge around the edges and around the white circle.  This gives the card a softer look.  

I made this card a thank you card, but you can use any of the sentiments from the Tin of Cards stamp set.  

To put my strips on starting with the right one at one inch from the right side of the card.  Then I adhered the other two strips right next to the first one.  Linen thread was used to wrap around the card twice (I used 23 inches).  I then made a double bow and adhered with a glue dot (I used 10 inches). 

The Layering Circle Framelits and the Stitched Shapes Framelits were used to cut out the circle.  I popped up the circles using the Stampin Dimensionals.  

Wasn't that an easy card to make? and a perfect way to use your scraps?

This is a short post today as I am busy working on projects for Stamp Camp tomorrow night and I have a workshop on Saturday.  Today my box of goodies come for the display I am doing at OnStage.  I can't wait!!  I wonder what is going to be in there?  

Have a fabulous Wednesday!

Love the bright pop of color behind the sentiment and all the grunge noise. I'll have to check my scraps!

I never know what to do with the thin strips. I thought this card would be perfect.
