Always wonder what to do with all these leftover pieces for other projects? The papers are too nice to throw away, so what can you do? Well, I always use my leftovers for some cards that I keep on hand. Here is a little sample...
My card base is 5 /2" by 4 1/4" cocoa cardstock with a fold on top. Leftover squares that I had from another project are used here. One 2 1/2"x2 1/2" design paper piece, two 2"x2" design papers and two 1 1/2"x1 1/2" design paper and two 1"x1" cardstock.
I stared with a 1"x 5 1/2" strip of colonial white cardstock centered in the middle of the card. I arranged my paper squared around it and placed a Cricut cut out in the center of my biggest square. I stamped my flowers onto it and finished the card with a bow.
Insert a piece of white paper inside the card and you are done. Have fun using your leftovers.
