A little of this, a little of that!

Over at LESS IS MORE the recipe this week is to use your scraps.  I'm a true scrapbooker and keep all my scraps in fact they are overflowing so I was keen to use some up.

For my card I started with a Whisper White card blank.  I spied the negative cuts from the sizzlits leaves that I used on my Less is More card last week and decided to use them.  Trimmed them up to the same size and corner rounded two of the corners on each.  

I have a bag of thin strips, so digging deep I came up with a selection of colours and glued them directly onto the card blank before glueing down the negative cuts on top. 

I have so many scraps like this I think I could make a 100 cards!  

Hope your having a great weekend, happy scrapping.  x

That's too clever. Made me go back and look at your card from last week. I think you could give both cards to the same person and they might not realize you were using the scraps of one to make the other!!!

I shall look forward to seeing the other 99 cards Aileen!
I must confess to not always saving the negatives of my die cuts, but these look great.
Thanks so much
