After finishing my elf card, I was done to just a few paper scraps so I decided to use them right away. There wasn't enough to put away, but still enough to make another project with. I actually ended up making two.
The first one was a card inspired by Freshly Made Sketch #250 and Simon Says Stamps Wednesday challenge (Make For the Border). The paper I had left was not wide enough for the design I was going for, but the die-cuts actually included a striped border that matched the paper, so but lining the stripes up, I was able to create a chevron pattern and siden the paper enough to keep my card to a regular size. Another die-cut was used for the main image. I used my Scallop Border punch to mat the paper with Lucky LImeade cardstock, and I scattered a few sequins to accent the card.
After I was done, I really didn't have much left to work with, but I did have a cute Season's Greetings die-cut and a circle frame one that looked great together, so I decided to go for a tag. I pulled out the Cheerful Tags Thinlits from the Holidays catalogue. The tag I used it meant to be folded in half, but I left it full length, and I glued another piece of paper and die-cut on the back to hide the fold and my adhesive that was showing up on the sides. I used a scrap of Chocolate Chip scalloped ribbon, a little thick baker's twine bow that was leftover on my desk, unused from a previous project, and I used the new Holly Berry Builder punch to add holly leaves on the right side of my top die-cut button. A leftover piece of baker's twine was also used at the top of the tag. It felt great to put so many leftover pieces to good use.
