Birthday cards using colorful scraps...


I made these three cards using some of my colorful cardstock scraps.

I started by adhering a bunch of strips of different widths onto a piece of printer paper.

For this first card, I cut a coin-edged oval out of my colorful piece. I also cut my happy birthday sentiment (and some stars) from glitter cardstock and glued it to the top of my oval. Then, I added my oval and those stars to a pre-inked panel and put that onto a green card base.

A simple stamped sentiment finished off the inside.

I carried on with the star theme for this card. I die-cut the sentiment from my striped piece, and then added a bunch of die-cut stars to a dry-embossed panel.

Finally, I die-cut a final "Happy birthday" along with a little banner. I added the stars from the banner to my sentiment panel and replaced them with white, glittery stars.

For these two cards, I stamped a sentiment on the inside and added a few more stars for color.

This was a fun way to decorate some cards. I even made a second striped piece for a future set of cards. I love using up some of those scraps!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh-- a little or a lot--every day.
