Making a Card from Scraps

Make greeting cards using up your scraps can be an enjoyable creative process.

¬†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.¬†

Making a Fall Blessings Card

Make a fall greeting card with products from the Makers Movement.

with the Makers Movement

The Makers Movement sent me a recently released die set and card stock pack. The fall colors of the card stock were perfect for making a card. The leaves cut out in two different tones of green were placed in a circle to make a wreath. I really enjoy the fall colors in the card stock pack.

Many of the items I use in posts are provided by the manufacturers to promote their products.
A special thanks to those brands who sponsor this site
.

Materials:

  • card stock – white and patterned
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Rinea foiled paper
  • Let’s Get Cozy Die
  • CrossOver II
  • Mini Maker
  • washi tape punch
  • tape runner
  • adhesive
  • pencil
  • sentiment die

I chose to work with coordinating paper that included two shades of green to make the wreath. The curved leaf die was perfect for the circular shape of the wreath.

I began getting the parts needed together. Cutting the leaf shape on the CrossOver II. My favorite thing about the CrossOver II is the adjustable steel roller bar, which allows various thicknesses to cut easily. The sentiment was an afterthought so I cut it on the Mini Maker. Both machines are made by the Makers Movement.

To see the card being put together, watch the video tutorial below.
