Making a Card from Scraps

 Making a card doesn’t have to be difficult. Using up your scrap pieces can be an enjoyable creative process and useful too. I keep my little scraps in a basket on the side of my craft table and then put color coordinating pieces together.  When there are enough of them, I start to make cards with them.

Materials:

 I used cardstock and Rinea Foil but any paper will work. I didn’t cut down or adjust the pieces. I find it a fun creative process to work around these constraints and find a pleasing composition. 

 I color my own gem stickers to coordinate with the design. This tip is a great cost-saving. I didn’t add a sentiment to the card. This makes the design flexible for a variety of different uses and I can personalize it when it’s needed.
