Like all – or many – crafters who papercraft, I have a ‘scrap drawer’. A place where all those bits of card and paper go to live after a project has been completed. If there’s enough card and paper left over, most crafters save it to perhaps use it for a sentiment or a little die cutting etc. My scrap drawer is getting fuller than I like, so I decided to make a card from some of the scraps.
I already had the base card stock – white 6″ x 6″, die cut and scored – so I chose three bits of scraps – the wordy one and the red papers which you can see have been used for the hearts and the fluttering confetti. Although I had stamps with the word ‘love’ on them – they were too small, so printed the ‘love’ word directly onto the card stock by putting it through my printer.
Next, I embossed a scrap of red paper from the drawer, and then die cut two hearts – one larger than the other, and glued those to the card. I then cut up another piece of red scrap, into really tiny confetti, and spread some glue (one which dries clear) onto the card, around the hearts, and sprinkled the confetti onto the glue, and gently pressed it flat with my hand. I also at this point added a few shakes of red glitter – just to give the card a few twinkly highlights. I then added some tiny buttons, a pretty insert and voila! A Scrap of Love was born.
I love this card. Such a simple idea and so incredibly easy to make – and it only cost pennies!
It would work as a card for a man or a woman. For Birthday; Anniversary; Just Because; Wedding; Mothers Day; Fathers Day; Thank You card .. … It would even work for Christmas too!
I really like this versatile card, and hope you do too!
