Does a card have to be really complicated? No, it doesn't. Thanks goodness!

      

A week or so ago I sat down and created a bunch of cards from scraps. I had these adorable coffee themed stickers from the Target $1 spot but the colors were difficult to match. Then I found a piece of corrugated cardboard in my scrap box! Ripping off one side of the cardboard exposed the corrugated interior, providing a great neutral backdrop for my stickers.

Supplies:
  • Card base – Michael's Craft Stores
  • Stickers – Target
  • Bling – Want2Scrap
  • Ink – Clearsnap
  • Sentiment Sticker – Crate Paper
  • Cardboard – Zutter Innovative
This baby went together lickety split! Are you trying to use up your scraps this year? Have you found any cool tips or techniques that would help any of us accomplish that goal? Please share!! We'll choose on winner from all the comments to receive a set of 5 handmade cards from my newly created stash :)

Happy Crafting!
