During that time, it was suggested to us to use the scraps to create our own cards. Well with that in mind, I got inspired and created some birthday cards from the scraps. I really enjoyed creating them. I really didn't want all that beautiful paper go to waste.
Below are four birthday cards I created using some scraps of My Mind's Eye Hip-Hooray paper.
With this card, I used my own scrap paper to create the shape of the card. I added some scraps and tag and banner die cuts from the My Mind's Eye paper collection. For the tag, I popped it up and I added silver brads. I also chalked the edges with Burnt Sienna to help pop up the paper.
With this card, the material is similar to the card before this one except I didn't use die cuts. I used more of my own scraps for the solid color paper. The blue square with the "Happy Happy Birthday" is popped up to give it more dimension. All the papers are chalked with Burnt Sienna.
This card I used similar scrap papers and added a die cut tag from the My Mind's Eye collection. I put a sticker that I had on the tag and placed it on the paper with ribbon to create a present.
This card I used the present die cut and cut out the words that was part of a sheet from the My Mind's Eye Hip-Hooray collection. I chalked everything to make it pop.
Well thanks for stopping by and checking out my card creations. Hopefully this will inspire you to create and utilize scraps from wonderful paper collections out there.
