Girly alert!

A super-girly card and green with a touch of satin ribbon! Every piece of cardstock I used on this card was left over from previous projects. I didn't cut into a new sheet of cardstock! The cardbase was from when I made another card. Whenever I cut cardstock in half for a card, I throw the other half in a small box on my craft table. And when I have scraps, I store them in 6x9 envelopes by general color, i.e., greens, reds, blues.
The next time I'm making a card, I check these pieces first before cutting more. It's a great to make sure I'm getting the maximum usage from my cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty color combination. The pink on pink with the satin ribbon is lovely.

I love doing this - making a new card out of what I have - I do store my scraps with the original paper in a ziploc bag, but I've thought about saving the "card bases" somewhere else so I won't accidentally cut them up! Anyway, I love this stamp set, and this is another good example of using it - thanks!
