This is what happens when you go thru your scraps (cards)

I was sorting all my scraps before the Crop yesterday and divided them by solids, patterns, polka dots and strips in my divider thingie. Anyways, I was thinking to myself how I have the entire rainbow of colors in there. :eek:

So.....

why not makes some cards?! Wink

I know they're super simple, but I really like them. The idea came to me today and I did all three in about 45 minutes. I should've taken a picture of the scraps before I cut these out. None of them were bigger than 6x6 inches.


Yep, butterflies are from Home Accents.

While I was on a roll with the rainbow thing, I thought I'd give it a try with my Martha Stewart dove punch

What the heck, why not try white. Wink (which I probably liked the best...lol!)

For the wording I just opened up a Word doc and typed out my greeting and printed it first. Then glued the butterflies/dove on.

It's a huge card (like 7x5 1/2) but I have some store-bought envelopes that will fit it. I had to make it big so it would fit those butterflies. I should've cut them all smaller to begin with. They are cut between sizes 1" (which is a lot smaller than an inch) and 1 1/2". The largest ones are about an inch.

Those are just beautiful! The words, and the scraps. I really need to think outside the box sometimes. These are so simple to make, yet just breathtaking! Biggrin
