Scrap Card

Do you need a great card idea to use up your long scraps?  How about these?

Purty, aint' they?  I wanted to make some Christmas cards.  I had some Fruitcake strips & scraps.  Basic Grey Fruitcake, that is.  I got the idea from Andrea Walford, a Canadian SU! demonstrator.  I made eleven cards in all!  Whoo hoo!  It took ALL freaking day!  OMG!  Who would've thought it would take all freaking day to make 11 cards?  It was fun and I really really do like the result! 

There were lots of combinations of paper patterns to choose from to mix and match.  I think some of the cards look like a cottage roof! 

Stamps: Christmas Greetings
Paper: SU! Soft Suede, Basic Grey Fruitcake
Ink: SU! Soft Suede Classic
Accessories: SU! Tasteful Trim XL Die, Big Shot, SU! 5/8" Old Olive Satin, SU! Sherbet Button Boutique, SU! Linen Thread, Mono Multi, Glue Dots, Stamp-a-ma-jig


  1. I absolutely love this and could see it being used for any occasion. I have a goal to put all of my scraps to good use, and this is a great card to help with that! Really well done.


  2. Very pretty Melissa! Love them!
