Use those scraps
I have been sick for the past 2 weeks. Every time I think I am getting better, I end up getting slammed with another round of whatever this is, so I’ve had little energy and little time to stamp.
I was straightening my room and found a ton of odd size envelopes from when I first started creating. I bought envelopes without thinking about the card size, so now I have lots of odd sizes that I have moved from spot to spot, sorted, rearranged and just refused to throw away.
With my newfound ‘use the scraps’ attitude, I decided that I would actually * gasp * USE the envelopes.
So this card base is 3 ½ x 5. I have about 20 envelopes that will use this size base.
I happen to be in Hobby Lobby and they have rearranged and fortunate for me, where having a sale. So, I bought a couple Impressabilities for 40% off and got them for a little over $4.00 each. Of course, a new toy just begs to be played with before it can be put away. So, this very simple card uses my smaller base, basic black scraps, Impressabilities, and yeah, that’s it.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!
