Hi everyone!  Today I'm sharing with you the cards I made using the leftover scraps from when I made my fall and Christmas lolllie wreaths.  (I posted those wreaths the other day).



I think the spice cake and holly berry bouquet designer series papers are so pretty and I just couldn't bring myself to throw out my scraps. I ended up with some 1" strips of paper leftover and so this is what I came up with. My fall card does have one strip of dsp from a paper pack from Sale a bration 2011.

First, you will want to take a quarter sheet of card stock and cover it with adheasive. Then starting at one end lay your strips of paper on top of your card stock. You will want to try and keep the straight and line them up so that there is not any space between each strip.

Next, all you need to do is to place your designer series paper onto of your die (I used my Stampin' Up! top note die on my cards) and then run it through your big shot machine.  You will want to try and line up your die with your card stock so that it's in the middle of your die.  And now you are ready to assemble your card.  I added my sentiment using dimensionals.  It's as easy at that!  I made these two cards in about 10 minutes.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed my project today!  See you tomorrow!

Great use of scraps! I've used my scraps to "quilt" the top note die with 1 1/4" squares. I haven't used stripes, so I might have to try that.
