Using your scraps
This card is made with all scraps - except the cuttlebugged mat background. The side panel is made from pieces (the lighter green ones are literally "slivers") put together to look like they are whole pieces, the sentiment is stamped on white scrap and matted on scraps but the button was the winner for me on this card!!! I pulled out some of my really tiny pieces of ribbon (keep them to add to a corner of a card..or something...can't throw away anything!!) anyway, I punched out a circle and just put these pieces around the circle. The back is a mess and you can see I just glued a large button on the front to cover the rough ends...voila!
used up some of my scraps!
I'm buried in it - my fault because I can't ditch anything...but I am really buried in it....so I have promised myself to come up with an idea at least once a week to use these scraps...may be the ugliest cards in the world when I get done but at least I will have some empty jars (to fill with new scraps) LOL
