More Scrap Cards
I guess I'm going to declare this week's post to scraps. Here's a card I made from some scraps from the weekly family card. It turned out so cute and I liked it so much I gave it to Val for her birthday. I played around with some paper piecing on this one. I just really wanted the image to tie in with this paper. I like the coordination part of putting cards together. Maybe because I'm not very good at collage type cards. Coordinating color and pattern then becomes a way of stretching a little without getting too collage-gy.
Here's another version of the same card sketch. Not quite as cute as Val's birthday card but still cute.
Both cards gave me an opportunity to use some of the $1 Snag 'em Stamps from Imaginisce that Debbie and Staci sometimes keep up at the counter. That's what I like - impulse items you have to buy but you're only out a buck!
