Using Scraps To Make A Card

Create The Life Card by Juliana Michaels made using scraps from the 3 Birds Studio Graceful Season collection available on HSN.com

I love my paper scraps, and I usually have a difficult time parting with them. Recently I shared a Thank You card using papers and scraps from the 3 Birds Studio Graceful Season collection. When I was making that card, I decorated it with some die cut patterned paper hearts. The negative scrap that was left over from die cutting the hearts made it's way into my scrap drawer. It was just too cool to throw away! I recently pulled out that scrap and decided to use it to decorate a new card. For this Create The Life card, I trimmed the negative scrap piece to the size I wanted and then backed it with a slightly larger piece of patterned paper to create a border. As you can see, I did my best to create a design similar to how I decorated the front of my It's A Beautiful Life Notebook.  For more details on this notebook and how I used my scraps on it, you can visit the 3 Birds Studio Blog!
