Use It Tuesday - Patterned Paper Scraps

Do you hoard patterned paper? Come on, confess. You know you can't stand to toss those bits and pieces left over from projects. And they are there... waiting for attention....

Well, today's card is a great one for using up those beloved papers. All you need is a shaped punch and some adhesive to create a groovy background suitable for any type of occasion. Here, I created two graduation cards; the one hiding in the back lacks bling since it is for my nephew.

The circles were punched out with a 1-1/4" circle punch and randomly adhered to the card base. After wrapping the card front with our Quilted Ribbon, I topped it with a graduation stamp from our Summer Mini Catalog (one, two years ago?) loaned to me by my friend Adela. A little bling on the one for my female cousin and we are good to go! Isn't it fun?!
