Not Class Related Cards - Quick and Easy with Designer Paper Scraps



Hello everyone!

It's not often that I get to share with you some cards made on my own to send off. Usually I use cards that I have made from classes to send off. However, with my recent move, I have not been able to find all of them yet. Since I needed to send off about 10 cards (8 TY & 2 Bday) I thankfully found my 'Thank You' cards. However I needed two birthday cards and I could not find the box of birthday cards! So I found some paper scraps (old and new) and created them.

First off, is a card made with some old paper from an 8 x 8 pad from Teresa Collins, years ago. It had such beautiful Fall colours which would be great for an October birthday. And I found a Stampin' Up birthday stamp set too...


Here is a peek at the side view to see the layering of the card.


Next, I created a card for a belated birthday card. Due to the move and classes taught, I was unable to get this card off for the birth date. But knowing that at the age of 93, she would not mind, I felt it would be fine. I also included a long letter inside, which she loves as her hearing makes phone calls  harder to hear what is being said.

Not long ago I taught some classes that used the lovely Graphic 45 'Portrait of a Lady' collection. I had some scrapes left and was able to quickly put together this card as well.


And, the side view to see the layering.


Late last night I received a phone call from my ex-mother in-law, and she was so thrilled with the card and letter.

Well, thank you for stopping by to have a look at my quick creations. Hopefully I will soon find the boxes with all the other cards. Also hope that these simple cards will give you some inspiration for creating your own paper collection cards.

Happy creating!

Thank you Sabrina for some easy to do ideas, using up these beautiful scraps is a perfect answer, why are they so hard to throw in the trash? Hee-hee, don't want to be a scrap hoarder but fear I might be!!
