Use Your Scraps Challenge!!!

I just can't believe it's already 2 days past Christmas!!! You make all those preparations to get ready for the Big Day and it all goes by soooo quickly!! Like me, I imagine that you have lots of Christmasy patterned paper laying around your scraproom that you just can't bear to throw away...well I have great news for you!! I have an easy card pattern that will use up those scraps and it will make a great Thank You card as well!! I used some Merrymint papers from American Crafts that I had laying on my scrap table and they were perfect for this project!!!

This card starts with a standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" base. Add a 2 x 5 1/2" strip over the fold and you have the start of a cute little card. Stamp some cute images on your base and add some embellies and you have the perfect Thank You Card for after the holidays!!!

I stamped some basic snowflakes and a sentiment on the Kraft Card the way Kraft paper is one of my all-time papers to use as card bases and you can find it at AC Bailey!!!

I stamped the sentiment on some scrap paper and I cut it out to use as a mask. I adhered the mask to the card base with removable adhesive.

I stamped the tree images over the masked sentiment with clear embossing ink and some clear glittered embossing powder and used the heat gun to set it.

Then I peeled off the mask and added all the embellishments and it looks like it took you hours to make a special thank you note for your friends and loved ones!! Only you will be all the wiser!!

Post a link to your project here and I will put your name in a drawing for a 7 Gypsies mini Album
I hope you have a ton of fun using up your scraps!!!!
