Hi there! It’s Amie here with a quick tip. Do you throw away the paper that is left over after you make a cut with your Cricut? Don’t! You can use those scraps to make a beautiful card. I used the Stella paper packet to cut out a shape for another card I was making and used what was left for this one. I inked the edges with my Cocoa Exclusive Ink Pad using a sponge and then adhered it to my Colonial White Die Cut Card front. The window that was left from my previous cut was just perfect for framing the Happy Birthday sentiment included in the Art Philosophy bundle. I also stamped this image with the Cocoa Ink. Have you seen the Just A Note Acrylix Stamp Set? It provided the perfect flower and leaf to embellish my card. I used Tulip, Olive, and Cocoa Inks for those images. After writing a personal message on the inside of the card, I used a hole-punch to make two holes, threaded my Cocoa ribbon through, and tied a bow to seal the card. There you go! Like magic, your scraps become the backdrop to a beautiful card!
