Make-a-Card Monday: Scrappy Card

I created a "Mini" Rainbow Mini Album, and I had these little scraps left over. I really like to try and use all the scraps I have left from all my projects as I don't have a lot of room in my crafty space, and I need to use what space I've got wisely. So, I like to try and not waste it.

Here is the simple (but sweet!) card I came up with.

I used the K and Company Life's Little Occasions "Brights" paper pad scraps to create this card. I layered them to mimic the covers of my Rainbow minis. I thought this would make a cute card to accompany the mini, should it be a gift. Or, if not, a card on hand for a future baby shower or birth.

I entered this card in these challenges...
ABC Challenge: X is for X-tra Special
Challenges 4 Everybody #31: Anything Goes
Inkspirational #41: Anything Goes

Here is a card I made earlier this year with the same idea in mind.

I made this card from thin pieces I had left over after making my die storage and you can see that HERE.

I hope this inspires you to use all those scraps. I'd love to hear how you use your scraps, too. Please share your ideas. :)

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
