Quick Cards vs.1

Back in September, I was in need of some birthday cards when I realized I was very low. We were actually on our way to a party when I noticed. Since I was waiting on Joe (shocking-it hardly ever happens), I sat down & made a few of these cards really quick. I remember seeing something by Susan Opel on Facebook, I think, about using scraps....not exactly sure but I think I've seen something like this before & gave it a try.

Since I was more in need of a card for a guy I went with these colors. I used a variety of circle punches & the plainer papers I used an embossing folder to give it some "oomph". I just randomly stuck down the circles until it looked ok to me. Then I stamped the corner & called it done.Since it was so easy to make I made a few more with the same colors.Later when I had some time, I then made more. I found these colors in my scrap stash & punched these. Did everything the same...Including making a few extra....Once again I was on a roll & pulled these paper scraps as well...I also switched it up a little using a different stamp...I'm crazy like that. ;) LOL!!

Seriously, these were so quick to make that it was sad to not make more. The best part was it used up a bunch of patterned paper SCRAPS hanging in my stash waiting to be used (that I probably wouldn't have used otherwise--let's be honest). It was a win-win all around!
