Another Father’s Day Card – Using Paper Scraps

Happy Monday, everybody!  I was able to make more time the other day for another Father’s Day card, so I thought I’d share it with you!  Check it out:

I recently went through all my paper (well, all the paper I brought with me) and organized it- paper-clipped together coordinating pieces for future cards, color coded all my solid card stock, and bit the bullet and got rid of some scraps that I would realistically never use.  You see, I have the hardest time throwing away even the smallest bit of paper, thinking, “oh, but I could make a flower out of this!  This would be perfect for…someday…” and then I rarely use said smallest bit of paper.  Well, I kept some of my larger-but-still-possibly-too-small-to-realistically-use-on-a-card pieces, and then rejoiced because they were perfect for this Father’s Day card!  I cut one strip of each different blue to the same size, layered them onto a piece of white paper, then ran that through my Cuttlebug using my diagonal stripes embossing folder.  Then, I stuck a brad in each corner and layered that whole piece onto light blue card stock and attached the whole thing to my card base.  I die cut the shapes and added “DAD” using old rub-on letters that I’ve had in my stash for ages, then popped it up using foam squares.  The inside was left blank for plenty of note-writing space.

I’m pretty proud of this simple card!  I used up some of my scraps, kept it simple and classy, and even got a little ombre-action going 😛  It’s very popular these days.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed your visit 🙂

    This is sooooo classy! I love the hombre effect you created with these scraps. Wonderful design….you really are a designer, you know….we need to get you a gig where you design and then let others do all the grunt work!
