Making a card with scrappy strips


One of the things I'm loving about the 'Pretty Paper Party' class is that there's inspiration for cards as well as layouts......I have loads of little scraps from cardmaking.......and while my scrapbooking scraps are all in one box.....the cardmaking scraps are all kept with the paper pad they came from......I do mix and match papers....but using from one pad does mean it all co-ordinates.
I've very little left in my 'Lost and Found' pad.....so this was a perfect way to use up the scrappy strips.
The addition of a felt flower and button........and it's finished........super quick as well.
If you like the idea of 'strip' cards there's also a couple of gorgeous ones to inspire on Deb's blog.

Lovely all around. I just used the same MME papers for a set of cards this week; they seem so fallish! Love the felt flower!
