Handmade Card Using Scrap Cardstock

Scallop Oval Punch

I had fun making this card out of scrap cardstock.  I used a piece of Bashful Blue cardstock as the base of the card but then I used scrap pieces to decorate the front.  I always hate to throw away little strips of cardstock that should be “good for something.”  Those little strips of Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery and Whisper White came in handy for this card!

Do you see how I punched a scallop oval out of the bottom right corner?

I made it so this stamp from the oval All stamp set shows through the window!

This is a very simple card but a great way to use up those scraps!  I’m always hearing you all say you have lots of scraps that you need to use.  Do you have some scrap strips?  Why not make up some cards like these?  You can mix up the colors and make a lot of variety!


  1. This is a great idea, Becky! I always keep my little scraps in a ziploc baggie so I can use them if I need them. But I never thought of using them in this manner! Love the idea! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great card. Now I have an idea of what to do with all my little strips. Keep up the great inspirational work. TFS
