Scraps And More Scraps

Today I’m posting two cards that uses small scraps of printed papers.
Do you save every little scrap of paper?
Well now it’s became such a mess that I don’t know if I’m coming or going!
So I thought this would be a start on cutting down on the mess.

Even the tissue flower is from scraps of packing tissue, and the paper button is scraps.

Using Spellbinders Classic Diamonds, (second smallest die) cut diamonds and place them on point, repeat until you fill a standard 5 ½ x 4 ¼ card front. 
Trim off edges, trim to size and cut in half. Bingo two card fronts.
Verse is from A-Muse Studio’s.
For my second card, which was really fun and I haven’t used this corner punch sense my Scrapbooking days.
Punch four corners and set them on point, tape them on the back, cut four more, keep adding until you have the front done.
My verse is from Stampendous.
Thanks for your time today, have a great week-end.
Stampin’ Hugs Vada
