Technique Tuesday

Hi everyone. First of all I want to wish you all a happy new year with lots of creativity.

Today I want to show you how you can make a quick card with just some leftover scraps. You all have those little 6x6 paperpads and when you make a card you allways have some little strips left. You don't want to throw them away but you also don't know what to do with them.

To make a card you only need some cardstock as the base of your card, some leftover pieces of scrap paper and a stamp.

I just glued the pieces of cardstock on top of each other. On top of that I put some leftover pieces of scrap paper.

Then just decorate your card with a nice border and your coloured stamp. It's just so easy to make a nice card with just some leftovers.
Have fun!
